A few weeks ago i wrote about a lovely ski resort. “But I don’t ski or snowboard,” i hear you cry. Well, if you haven’t mastered the dark arts of the ski, snowboard or the ever mysterious telemark-ski then there are still plenty of thrills to be had. Tobogganing offers great fun and best of all, you are in a relaxed sitting or reclined position. (depending on how much Glühwein you've had) Switzerland boasts some amazing toboggan runs including the longest run in Europe but I've selected a few that are close to the city.
In case you have just arrived in town the Uetliberg has a great toboggan run with the added bonus that it is right on the doorstep. Okay, there’s not always a lot of snow but when you wake up and the world is white take the S10 to Uetliberg and ride up and down a few times. Pray for snow in the city.
This is a really convenient place to go riding as it is only 40 minutes from Zurich and has a toboggan run of three and a half kilometres. Sattel-Hochstuckli also offers illuminated slopes between 7pm and 10pm on Saturday night. If you have one glühwein too many the gondola will take you back to town at 11pm.
The Rigi is known as the Queen of the mountains and has five toboggan runs that are between half a kilometre and four kilometres in length. The Rigi boasts some spectacular views as you make your descent and also provides a shuttle bus service should one run not be enough. As it is one of the lower mountains make sure you check snow conditions before you set off though.
The Flumserberg lies to the east of Zürich and offers a three kilometre toboggan run. One of the great things about Flumserberg is the proximity of the railway station to the gondola and Flumserberg also offers night tobogganing between 7pm and 9pm. Night tobogganing is subject to weather and snow conditions so make sure you check before you venture out into the night.
Finally i have included Grindelwald which is the proud home of the longest toboggan run in Europe and while it is a bit further from Zürich than the other locations its run is a massive 15km in length with a 1.6km vertical drop. That's gotta be worth the extra travel time. Named “Big Pintenfritz,” it received its name from a local inn keeper who established the run after a bet. History doesn’t record whether he won or lost the bet.
I love a bit of cheese. Whether it’s Raclette, Fondue or just a piece of Cheddar with bread, a good culinary evening usually requires a visit to the cheese shop. But where to go? I tested out a few of the cheese shops in the city.
