If you like sledding you must visit the Wildkogel Arena in Neukirchen Bramberg. It boasts the longest toboggan run in the world at 14 kilometers dropping 1300 meter from Wildkogel to Bramberg. You can ride for as long as 30 or 50 minutes, depending on your speed. Wildkogel is also the world's longest illuminated run as it is open till 9:30 p.m every day. Night tobogganing is also available at other locations. The most powerful floodlight system in Europe illuminates the toboggan run on the Hirschenkogel at Semmering.

One more great place for tobogganing is the picturesque village of Pettneu. It has a 2-kilometre-long illuminated natural toboggan run. At the St. Anton ski resort you'll also be able to try out the natural 4 km long toboggan run. The cable car runs from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tobogganing in Gastein is no less adventurous. Here you can use wooden toboggans, which require special knowledge to control well during the run. So choose the best destination for tobogganing and enjoy your winter holidays in the Alps.
