Tobogganing on the Zugerberg

Tobogganing is even more enjoyable with a view of the beautiful Lake Zug and the mountains of Central Switzerland – on the Zugerberg, close to Zurich.


This toboggan run starts just below the summit station of the Zugerberg railway. In good snow conditions, it is open daily from 10.00am and promises sledding enthusiasts a speedy ride down to the Schönegg valley station. The run is equipped with padding and safety nets and is groomed regularly. All the same, there is a risk of icy patches, so visitors are advised to wear a helmet.

Catering Facilities Nearby

Food and refreshments for hungry winter sports lovers are available at the Zugerberg summit station.

Toboggan Hire

Toboggans can be hired – depending on availability – at the Zugerberg valley station.

Special Remarks

If the snow conditions are good, the toboggan run is also open at night, but it is not floodlit. It is therefore advisable to take a headlamp or flashlight with you. Toboggans for night tobogganing can be hired and returned at the Schönegg valley station from Monday to Saturday (up to around 11.00pm).
