Toboggan run

Tobogganing on Bern’s local mountain

A tobogganing excursion in Bern

The summer toboggan promises an unimpeded descent and fast-paced fun for both kids and adults. Tight bends, quick straights and even a tunnel mean that thrills and butterflies in your stomach are guaranteed. You can also enjoy a great view over the Alps and across the rooftops of the capital. You decide how quickly you go. The brake handle means you can adapt the speed as you wish.

School groups, associations or companies can also rent the toboggan run exclusively in the morning, Mondays to Fridays. Find out more here.
