Tobogganing on the Bachtel

It is around a one-hour walk to this fast and picturesque toboggan run that awaits visitors on the Bachtel mountain, close to Rapperswil-Jona, when there is enough snow.


The start of this toboggan run is near the Bachtel Kulm restaurant, around a one-hour walk from Wernetshausen. The first section of the route mainly passes through woodland and is very steep at the start, which means that it is only recommended for experienced tobogganers. The second section down to Wernetshausen is gentler and also suitable for children.

Toboggan Hire

Toboggan hire is not available locally, so visitors are requested to bring their own toboggan or bob with them.

Catering Facilities Nearby

Refreshments are available for hungry tobogganers at the Bachtel Kulm restaurant and the Hasenstrick, which is not directly on the tobogganing slope.

Special Remarks

The start can only be reached on foot, but the walk is subsequently rewarded with a fast and picturesque toboggan run.
