The ascent to Brand Alm begins in Längenfeld and follows the forest path (toboggan run) in the direction of Gries. The way, especially the first piece is a bit steeper yet feasible for everyone. Due to some bends to be mastered, the further slope is less noticeable. Along the way up you can always catch a glimpse of Längenfeld. Once at the top there is a wonderful panoramic view.Strengthened it is fast back to the valley.

Please note that there is no toboggan rental at Brand Alm !! At Sport Grüner, you can rent a sledge to the church in the center of Längenfeld.
