On the local mountain Katrin, for example, you can go on wonderful ski tours or take the gondola to the summit to enjoy the fantastic view from there.

The Trockentann toboggan run in Bad Goisern is recommended for sledding fans - after an approx. 40-minute ascent (and a short break in the hut) you can choose between toboggan run and forest road on the descent.
