The three kilometre (1.87 miles) adventure-tobogganing track is a highlight for the whole family. The chute starts at the gondola lift's peak exit and goes all the way down to the base station. Through winding tunnels, you pass by fantastic creatures, such as the wizard Siebenstein, or the evil dragon Feuerzahn lit by magical light effects. At the backdrop of spheric sounds, visitors immerse into the world of the magic mountain.

If you'd rather enjoy some peace and quiet, there are 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) of hicking trails as well as opportunities for snowshoe tours. Furthermore, the cross-country skiing tracks go another 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) through the wintery landscape.
