Trip to the Toboggan Runs in the Alps!

A daredevil spectacle

Tobogganing is very popular in Bavaria, especially in the Bavarian Alps. There are many natural toboggan runs there. "Tobogganing" or "Rodeln" is typically done with small wooden sleds with runners! When I was growing up, all of us kids had a little wooden sled like this, and every neighborhood in Munich had its own little sledding hill.  
 

In the snowy Alpine region, the Hornschlitten (a wooden sled called horn sled) was needed as a working tool. For some years now, the horn sled has been very popular in sporting sled races. The name "horn sled" comes from the two front runners, which are extended upwards. They are used to steer the sled. During the daredevil sled races you have to show full body effort, because otherwise you will get off the track!

 

Would you like to be a part of it, at least as a spectator? Then you have the opportunity to watch the daredevil drivers every year in January.

Did you know that you also have the opportunity to toboggan at the Munich beer festival, the Oktoberfest? No? Here is more information about it!

"Toboggan" is the name of the fun fair ride at the Munich Oktoberfest, where you can do a kind of summer tobogganing without skids. A fast conveyor belt takes you up to a small tower, from which you can get onto a wooden slide that takes you back down on a burlap sack. The toboggan is one of the rides at Oktoberfest that has the most spectators. The next opportunity to toboggan at Oktoberfest will be from September 16 to October 3, 2023.
