Sommerrodelbahn Gutach is an awesome summer toboggan run is located in the Black Forest! It’s only 7 mins from Dorothees Glass Hut in Wolfach, Germany. It’s also only 23 mins from Triberg, Germany. Also note it’s open on Sundays, which is great!
We checked this out on a Sunday but it also happened to be the weekend of a German holiday so I think it was more crowded than it normally would be. Since it was so busy we chose to just get the one ride ticket. We waited about 15 mins in line before we got up to the ride.
This coaster is much larger and steeper than the coaster in EifelPark and is so much fun! Bea was scared so she went down much slower than the rest of us, who flew down as fast as we could.
Here is some video of going up and coming down!
There is also a small playground behind the snack shop if you have little kids.
This was probably the best attraction of the day for the boys. Bea was not a fan but she’s scared of heights and this was just a bit too much for her. Mr. B and I thought it was great family fun!
