The natural toboggan run in Rosenau am Hengstpaß is 1.3 km long and has 173 altimeters. With the existing floodlights is a night sledding also possible. The start is located at the beautiful inn Zottensberg at an altitude of 877m. On the first 700m there are no sharp bends or curves and the average gradient is 11%. The last 600m of the track have a slope of 16.5% and there are short sections with over 20%. You also need to master two turns.

For safety the curves are protected with wooden planks. Especially if the sled is iced, good shoes are very important to ensure even braking. Not only the children should wear a helmet. A plastic sled is for this demanding toboggan run near Windischgarsten absolutely inappropriate. On the toboggan run in Rosenau were held championships. For the timing has been build at the start and finish a small house.

I advise you on the first ride to start cautiously and only when the next voyages faster. Children's who should have not enough experience in sledging in no way ride alone. As the toboggan run is only about 3m wide, please do not go on the toboggan run uphill for security. The Inn Zottensberg can be reached by taxi or car (green line in the Google Map). If you would like tobogganing during the week in Rosenau please inquire in advance if that day is a toboggan taxi way, or to organize the drive itself.
The toboggan rental is available from the hotel Zottensberg.

The inn Maurerwirt (meeting point with the toboggan taxi) is the finish of the track in Rosenau on a 300m long path (red line in the Google Map) accessible and is located just off the main through-road on the right.
