The toboggan run in Gutach is next to the outdoor museum Vogtsbauernhöfe with beautiful historic Black Forest farms. In addition there is the "Park with all your senses" with barefoot walking paths and more. The three attractions can be ideally combined for a day trip . Good to know: As our holiday house guest you can visit the summer toboggan run with an exclusive voucher with a special prize. This protects the family budget on your vacation.
