High up …
In the forest rope course Natrun

Alone or with your family, you will experience spectacular hours climbing across ropes and swinging wooden planks under the open sky.
… race downhill
On the summer toboggan run

Giant slides & mountain carts
Down the mountain with speed
The forest slide park on the Natrun in Maria Alm represents another opportunity to race down to the valley with dash and fun. During your speedy downhill adventure, 5 steel slides with a length of up to 45 m will safely lead you down from the top station of the Natrun cable car to the Postalm. Afterward, you can comfortably return to the starting point with the cable car Natrunbahn.
Have you ever raced down the mountain in a mountain cart? The mountain cart piste starts at the alpine playground at the Karbachalm, which can be reached quickly with a cable car. Enjoy the breathtaking panorama before you dash down the 7 km long road (after receiving instructions, of course). This adventure will undoubtedly be packed with action and fun.
