About 2 KM slide. Climbing the mountain with the cable car. Lovely views at the top of the mountain and as you go down with the slide. For all ages, children up to 6 can slide with a parent. One go is free with Salzburgland card

This is a must visit attraction if you are in the Salzbugerland area. We went on Thursday evening (after 6pm you pay once and can go up and down as often as you like) and it was one of the most enjoyable family evenings ever. The facilities are all very well kept (toilets etc) and the staff very helpful. All... More

Brilliant day out for kids who enjoyed it and wanted several goes. Lovely views at the top of the mountain and a nice ride in the cable cars. The tobgan was great fun and even tried the evening run on the thursday night.
