Summer Tobogganing in Abtenau: 1,980m of Tobogganing Fun on the Karkogel

Speed down the slopes on small yellow scooters: summer fun for young and old in Salzburg

Tobogganing in summer? Why not? Abtenau’s summer toboggan run lets you speed down the track on the Karkogel mountain from May until October. Leave your car at the free car park at the valley station of the Karkogel cable car. The comfortable gondola will take you in just a few minutes right up to the start of the toboggan track, where aerodynamic yellow summer toboggans await brave riders!

Safety first: summer tobogganing on the Karkogel

Kids up to 6 years old can ride the summer toboggans with an adult. Kids 6 years and older who meet the height requirements for braking can ride alone with a child seat. Safety belts are a must for all riders, young and old! The scooter’s centrifugal brake ensures that no rider will go too fast as the scooter automatically brakes when it reaches its maximum speed of 30 km/h.

Twisting, turning tobogganing fun in Abtenau, Austria

After the track is clear of previous riders and you get “the green light”, you start at a height of 1,133m above sea level from the Karkogel cable car mountain station and ride over 1,980 metres through curves, straightaways, and tunnels1 to the valley below. Who will have time to enjoy the view? And before you know it, you’re at the finish line! That means just one thing – get back into the cable car and head back up the Karkogel!
