After a big snowfall, the whole Munich goes sledging. Luckily there are many locations to try it in the city. One of the most popular places is Olympiapark. The Olympic mountain (Olympiaberg) is the highest sledging hill in Munich, and probably the most thrilling. There is even a snow tube lane for kids by the lake. If the weather is clear, you can also enjoy a lovely view over Munich and mountains.

Luitpoldhügel is best known for its sledging in winter. It also offers great views of the city and the Alps. You can go on a fast downhill run or choose a long shallow run from over 120 meters of terrain. It can get rather crowded here on weekends.

If you happen to be in the English Garden, then head to the Monopteros, a rather low but popular hill in the centre of the park, so it's a perfect location for combining sledging with a nice walk and a hot drink in one of the nearby cafes.

Another good sledging spot is in Theresienwiese, down the Bavaria Hill. It's popular due to its unique location. The hill is quite small but you can speed down pretty quickly.

Well, the best sledging and tobogganing runs can be found outside the city, in the Alps. But if you want to stay in the city and enjoy the winterish atmosphere, urban sledging is lots of fun.
