Summer toboggan run Leoklang
There is plenty of fun and excitement to be had on the 400 m summer toboggan run “Leo Klang”, right next to the top station of the Asitz lift.
At 1800 m above sea level you zip down through the beautiful Pinzgau scenery, with wonderful views of the Steinernes Meer mountains above Saalfelden, and the Leoganger Steinberge mountains.
At the end of the ride down, there is a lift that pulls you and your toboggan back to the start, ready for your next “Leo Klang” toboggan run.
Prices and operating hours
The summer toboggan run on the Asitz mountain in Leogang is really something special. It is the first musical toboggan run in the world. Whilst riding on it, different noises and melodies are produced as you pass various devices. The summer toboggan run makes a lovely visit for families especially.
“LeoKlang” came into being as a result of a collaboration between the Leogang lift company (product leader Josef Dum), the Musikum Saalfelden under Barbara Zimmer, Musikum teacher Tobias Guttmann, and pupils of the Musikum Saalfelden.
The initial idea was to somehow link the existing summer toboggan run with the idea of the Asitz mountain being the “mountain of the senses”. The sense of hearing was chosen as a focus, and, after many hours of development and experimentation “LeoKlang” was created. Barbara Zimmer came up with the name.
The official opening took place with a wonderful concert on the terrace of the Alte Schmiede, given by the Musikum Saalfelden. A number of different groups performed a varied programme in wonderful weather, and the many visitors were duly impressed by the talents of the young musicians.
Try and recognise the melody that plays as you are pulled up the lift. Relax and experience the first musical toboggan run, here on the Asitz.
We look forward to your visit!
