The Astbergbahn chairlift takes you comfortably to the start of the toboggan run. You can reach the start also on foot, passing the parish church of Ellmau and the district Kirchbichl in about 1.5 hours. A cab can also take you up to the Brenner Alm. You can rent a toboggan in all sports stores in the valley, or directly behind the Astbergbahn valley station. The tobogganing fun then starts right next to the chairlift on the mountain. The track leads back to the valley station of the Astbergbahn, but you can also turn left on the way and get directly to Ellmau (to the Hotel Der Bär).
The toboggan run is 4,5 km long, a medium downhill run suitable for families (the first steeper part can be bypassed via the Brenneralm). The descent takes about 20-25 minutes.
The toboggan run is open daily starting from December 25th from 08:00 to 16:00 and is also illuminated starting on January 20th Wednesday to Sunday from 18:30 to 24:00!
Attention: between 16:00 to 18:30 and from 00:00 to 8:00 it is closed for preparation!
Ascent with the Astbergbahn: From Dezember 25th daily from 08:00 to 16:00 o'clock, and from Jan 20th also Wednesday to Sunday from 18:30 to 21:30 o'clock.
Note: No day/week or season tickets are valid in the evening. In the evening, you pay an extra mountain/season ticket for tobogganing.
Cosy places to stop for refreshments such as the Brenner Alm or Treichlhof on the mountain, or the Koasa Hüttn in the valley, provide an atmospheric toboggan evening.
