At Lake Achensee, there are six natural toboggan runs between 1.5 to 4.8km long to choose from, ranging from family-friendly to fast-paced and demanding. There are several options for those who want to avoid the climb. The toboggan run in Achenkirch has lift access. In Pertisau, the Rodlexpress tractor takes visitors to the Rodlhütte from where a traffic light ensures a safe descent. The Karwendel cable car provides easy access to the toboggan run on the Zwölferkopf.
