Sledding Wiriehorn - Switzerland

Diemtigen Wiriehorn Sledding


For a beautiful sled run in Nature Park Diemtigtal, consider a visit to Wiriehorn. The area is home to a pleasant 5.6 km sled run, which leads through forests, provides gorgeous views and is a quiet winter wonderland. The perfect place to unwind during the winter months, plus, for those that enjoy speed, the end of this route is fast!

Rent your sled at the base of the lift and get ready for a day of fresh air. Your sled rental will cost you roughly CHF 15 (depending on the type of the sled you choose).

Head over to the Diemtigen, Riedli chairlift, which will sweep you up the mountain. Hop off the lift and get ready to start the sled run. The sled run is a mix of walking and sledding, making it ideal for those looking to linger a bit longer and take in the scenic views. The sled run doubles as a walking trail, so please use caution when walkers are present.

The route is classified as "advanced," due to the fact that once you come to the section just before the street crossing (near the bottom, farm area), the sled route picks up some serious speed! Use caution in this section and please keep children close. Toward the very end the sled run may be icy due to a nearby snow making machine, if it is operating. This made the track icy, making steering and stopping quite difficult. Please be prepared to help children in the area. At the very end, near the lower lift station, the path hooks very hard to the left. Be careful and go very slowly!
