Tobogganing and horse carriage rides
A classic off-piste activity is tobogganing. The natural toboggan runs on the Markbachjoch, Schatzberg and Reither Kogel will thrill winter sports enthusiasts young and old. The tobogganing fun can be combined with a short hike or a stop for refreshments. Those who like it even more romantic can enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride with Tyrolean Haflingers through the wintry landscape. Along the way you will pass rustic farms, the fresh air is good for body and soul.
Cozy stop in alpine huts and mountain restaurants
