The start of the track is located just off the top of the gondola station. But before you'll downhill in the valley you should absolutely stop by the Gallic village. Next to the mountain station of the gondola and Bottinghaus is for the children a long magic carpet and one of the coolest ski runs far and wide. In the Gallic village, you can also take the ski through the small huts and visit the resident to Gaul. With snowballs you can shoot on the Roman legionaries and between the trees there are also some hidden Romans. The "Singnix was" captured in style and hanged on a tree. The Gaulish village is not only for small children but also for adult Asterix fans very interesting. Especially since the characters are activated by motion detectors and can speak. Behind the giant ice sculpture (about 10 m high) there is a small, funny ice slide.
