A toboggan run stretches 3.8 kilometers (2.4 miles) from Alp Egg all the way down to Ricken. The ascent on the narrow, often rather icy mountain road begins at the Rittmarren bus stop and takes a good hour. Once at the top, visitors can fortify themselves at the Bergrestaurant Alp Egg with some hearty Alpine snacks before racing back down the slope on a toboggan.
