If you are looking for snow fun with your family at the weekend but do not want to sit in the car for hours, then Blomberg in Bad Tölz is the place for you. It is less than an hour’s drive from Munich and you can expect white mountain peaks and a nice view.
At the valley station of the double chair lift you can buy one or more lift rides up. You can either bring your own sledge for the descent or borrow it right there. The chairlift has its own holder for sleds and you don’t have to hold it up on your arm the whole way up. The prepared descent starts from the middle station and it goes rapidly down the mountain for about 20 minutes. Children should definitely ride with an adult to have enough weight to steer on the sled. If you are in a group, you find plenty of places on the way to wait for the whole group.
We recommend that you do not get off at the middle station, but go up to the top station. Already on the way you can enjoy a fantastic view of the mountain landscape, Munich and Lake Starnberg. Once at the top, you can start tobogganing in good snow. Even if the snow is not enough for tobogganing, it is not boring on the walk towards the descent. Various figures and play equipment like a giant xylophone are built on the way. We loved the combination of a winter walk and sledding on our family adventure.
On the way between the mountain and middle stations, the Berggasthof Blomberghaus is waiting for a break. In front of the door there is a children’s playground including a tipi tent made of branches. At noon the sun shines directly on the terrace of the mountain hut and it is worth getting a seat there. Another refreshment stop is waiting directly at the valley station next to the lift. Whether for a quick coffee or a hearty lunch, everyone will find something.
Since the way to the middle station can only be reached by lift (theoretically you can also walk uphill, but this is dangerous because of the departing sled drivers), your children should be at least 3 years old for the family trip to be able to sit in the chairlift during the trip. However, this is only our own assessment and every family is known to know their children best.
