Zell am Ziller Toboggan Gerlosstein Winter

Toboggan run Gerlosstein

Proper winter holidays contain a funny toboggan run with a stop in one of the rustic mountain huts. The natural toboggan run in Hainzenberg has a length of 7 kilometres and therefore it is the longest run in the Zillertal valley. Furthermore it is floodlit until 1.00 o’clock each night (except Sundays). The Gerlosstein cable car enables a convenient transport to the top station, where the toboggan run starts.

Cross country skiing

Cross country skiing is wellness and fitness – all in one. This kind of sport gently strengthens muscles and joints and lets you enjoy the marvellous snowy scenery of the holiday regions Zell, Gerlos, Wald-Königsleiten and Krimml-Hochkrimml. Whether you prefer the skating-style or the classic one – we have the right amenities for you.

A real highlight is the high altitude cross-country skiing track in Hochkrimml. Heavenly experiences amid the fascinating landscape of the Zillertal valley.
