Central Switzerland: Toboggan run with spectacular views

After crossing the ski slope, you will pass the route by sledge via Tschungeli to Rigi Klösterli. This slope, which is mostly in the forest, is great fun for young and old. From Rigi Klösterli, shuttle trains bring the sledgers back to the start point. Sledging does not require any special technical skills and can be practiced by anyone.
