Tobogganing in the Harz Mountains – the most beautiful toboggan runs in the Harz Mountains

Sledding in the Harz is becoming increasingly popular with families with children. Numerous slopes in the Upper Harz villages of Torfhaus, Schierke and Braunlage invite you to toboggan. Enjoy the white season with your children and experience a rapid descent on the sleigh. In the Oberharz, snow lies every year in winter. Tobogganing in the Harz Mountains is usually possible from mid-January to the end of February. In Torfhaus directly there is a Rodelbahn next to the Nationalparkhaus. You can toboggan into the evening hours and enjoy the direct view of the Brocken. However, the parking situation is extremely tense at the weekend. Some of the streets are used as temporary parking spaces. So arrive early.

Sledding in the Harz Mountains and National Park

The Winter in the Harz invites you to toboggan. Even a light blanket of snow is enough to turn a slope meadow into a toboggan run. Then all you need is a sleigh or a simple Po slide and the sleigh ride can begin. There are tobogganable slopes in the flatter Harz foreland as well as on the heights in Oberharz and in almost every village. No preparation of the tracks is necessary, the runners smooth the sled slope by the way. Nevertheless, the Harz hosts prepare extra toboggan slopes at particularly suitable locations. These designated sledding runs in the Harz are among the most popular excursion destinations for families in the winter season. These include short, gently sloping toboggan runs for small children as well as daring, longer runs with winding or steep passages.

Sledging in the Harz Mountains – From the natural toboggan run to the prepared slope

Prepared sledge slopes are available in many holiday resorts and winter sports areas, for example around Braunlage. Often there is a sledge rental, a snack bar and a lift in the immediate vicinity. Whether large or small, almost anyone can drive downhill with the sled, only the steering has to be practiced. The toboggan runs in the Harz can be used with all standard tobogganing equipment, although the good old wooden toboggan is still popular. The steering is done by shifting the body weight or with the feet in the snow, depending on the type of sled. This works particularly well when the sled is the right size. For adults of average size, a sled length of 115 centimetres is recommended. Enthusiastic toboggan friends, especially children, also slide down the sledge slopes in the Harz on many other companions.
