Rosskopf in South Tyrol is not only a ski resort, but it is also a summer tourist attraction thanks to its natural beauty and adrenaline rush. A fast-paced summer toboggan run with a unique view awaits on Sterzing's local mountain. You can reach speeds of up to 40 kilometres per hour on the 1.3-kilometre-long track. You overcome a height difference of 300 metres.
Panorama Mountain Coaster's summit is 2,120 metres above sea level. The summer toboggan run begins and ends at the mountain and valley stations of the panorama lift. It is only a few minutes' walk from the top station of the new gondola that leads from the valley to the Rosskopf. A total of 36 toboggans are available for the fun of tobogganing.
The summer toboggan run will not be open again until 2023. The reason for this is the ongoing construction of the 10-seater gondola lift.
In addition, there is a recently opened outdoor centre in Sterzing, including bicycle rental, hiking guides and equipment rental for mountain sports. There is also the Rossy Park on the Rosskopf, which is also a perfect destination for families with its children's playground and petting zoo. It can be reached in a few minutes' walk from the valley station of the panorama lift. Combining an excursion to the summer toboggan run with a hike on the Rosskopf is another great choice.
Panorama Mountain Coaster opened in 2021. As a result, Sterzing paved the way for summer tourism on the Rosskopf. A special feature of the summer toboggan run is its sustainable construction. By using the special construction method, no rough interventions are necessary in nature. Instead, the rails were installed using ground nails that anchor the facility in the ground and can also be easily removed again.
How to get there
The easiest way to reach Sterzing is by car via the Brenner motorway.
- From Munich via Innsbruck, it takes about 2:45 hours.
- A paid car park is available at the valley station.
If you are travelling by public transport, you can take the IC-/EC trains to the Brenner railway station and then a regional train to Sterzing.
