Located near the stunning Oeschinen Lake, the Oeschinensee Rodelbahn is a popular summer attraction for those coming to see this alpine jewel.

The track is quite short at only 750 meters, but comes with a series of sharp turns and thrilling drops. You can of course control your speed, making it suitable for both families and adrenaline junkies.

Pfingstegg to Baregg Hut

Sitting right above Grindelwald, the Pfingstegg Rodelbahn offers an exhilarating ride with stunning alpine views along the way.

I often recommend this to people wanting a little adventure without the long lines you get at Grindelwald First.

The track is 735 meters long (2400 ft), with a range of sharp turns, drops, and twists that will keep your heart racing.

What sets this coaster apart is its breathtaking location, which provides panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and the Grindelwald Valley. You can also go for a short hike to the Baregg hut, ride the Fly Line, or just sit back and enjoy the views.

Pradaschier Toboggan Run, Churwalden (Near Chur)

The Pradaschier Toboggan Run in Churwalden is the longest toboggan run in Switzerland, stretching over 3,060 meters (or 10,000 ft).

It is usually far out of the way for most people, but if you are coming back through Chur on the Glacier Express or Bernina Express, then it just might work out for you!

This coaster offers an exciting journey through alpine meadows and dense forests. With 31 curves and a vertical drop of 480 meters (1500 ft), riders can enjoy a thrilling ride with speeds reaching up to 40 km/h (25 mph). The scenic beauty and exhilarating descent make it a favorite among adventure enthusiasts.
