The toboggan run in the Sarn-Heinzenberg winter sport region is very popular especially among families and offers wonderful sledging days. The great thing about this trail is not just the tobogganing adventure in itself - the view is breath-taking as well and is sure to put a smile on your face. At the bottom you will only want to do one thing: go down again!
The start of the well-prepared toboggan run is located a few meters above the chairlift mountain station. On the initially slow descent, the view sweeps along the gentle Heinzenberg to the Piz Beverin (2998 m above sea level), one of the most striking and popular mountains in the central Graubünden region. On the opposite side of the valley, Feldis in the Domleschg is visible.
The lower part of the track then requires full concentration: the ride here gets faster. It leads through snowy forests and past cosy mountain huts. After two sharp turns, the finish is reached: the valley station of the chairlift.
