Wintertime fun in Walchsee, Tyrol
Sledding & Snowtubing Enjoyment
A sledding expedition is a vital part of every perfect winter holiday. In Kaiserwinkl, you will find a number of natural sledding hills. It isn't only the kids who love to hurtle across the snow on a sled, passing other sledders they catch up to along the way. Sledding is also guaranteed to put a smile on the face of grown-ups and allow them to forget the outside world completely.
Have you ever been snowtubing? Snowtubing is yet another form of high-speed fun in the snow that you will discover in the Kaiserwinkl. We invite you to give it a try, zooming down two specially prepared tracks, perched on rubber innertubes. At speeds up to 50 km/h, you will glide all the way down the mountain, whilst the lift will bring you back to the top. Thanks to floodlighting, you can even go tubing in the evening after a full day of skiing.
A special lift will carry you, perched on your snowtube (essentially a rubber innertube), to the starting point, where you will begin your ride down the snow-covered track all the way to the valley below. Of course, there's plenty of space at the bottom for you to safely come to a complete stop. During the daytime, but also at night – open until 10 o'clock (Staffnerhof lift in Kössen).
