ON YOUR MARKS, GET SET, HAVE FUN….
The 5 km long sledge run from Brandalp to Unterbäch is known far and wide and popular with young and old. Whether you take the traditional sledge, modern bobsleigh or extraordinary ‘Brandalp-Blitz’ – you’re sure to enjoy the ride. It’s easy to reach the start of the sledging run by chairlift from Unterbäch.
Sledges, bobsleighs and Brandalp-Blitzes can be hired from the Olympiasport sports shop in the village:
- 1 day CHF 8.00–11.00
- 1/2 day CHF 5.00–7.00
There are many alternatives to skiing in Unterbäch: probably the most extraordinary experience is a ride on the ‘Brandalp-Blitz’ – a sleek piece of sports equipment that vaguely resembles a milking stool. Once you have taken a seat on the ‘Brandalp-Blitz’, you can zip back down from Brandalp to the village – or take it a little easier.
Hire: Brandalp-Blitzes can be hired in the sports shop as well as in the restaurant Alpenrösli at the top station of the chairlift:
- Per trip: CHF 2.00
- The Brandalp-Blitz can be rented at the sports shop as well as at the Alpenrösli restaurant at the top station of the chairlift.
