Sledding Run

The 6.5 kilometer-long natural sledding run on Wallberg mountain is one of Germany's longest and most challenging. The ride down the moutain to the valley takes about half an hour. As the sledding run ranks among the more challenging ones, it is not suitable for small children

Please understand that dogs cannot be taken on the sledding run. Airboards are also not permitted. This is for your own safety and that of your dog.

The company that operates the Wallberg cable car reserves the right to close the run if the weather conditions are not suitable for sledding. This can be the case if, for example, the run is icy or large amounts of new snow have fallen. If you are planning to visit Wallberg mountain in order to go sledding, please check whether the run is open under Open Lifts
