Toboggan lift "Brockenblick"

Tobogganing is fun, if it wasn't only for that long walk back up the hill. Well in Torfhaus you have it a lot easier because of a special attraction. The toboggan lift "Brockenblick" with its flood lights. This means no more walking back up the hill after an exciting ride down and on weather permitting and with enough snow the fun can go on into the evening thanks to the flood lights. Please pay attention to the prior announcement.

The toboggan lift is near the big car park on the B4 next to the National park visitors centre. A wide meadow awaits you to slide down with your toboggan.

Attached to the lift is a sledge and it is on this that you sit, this then pulls you back up the hill at the same time you drag your own sledge behind you. It's easy and practical! At the getting off point you just stand up and the sledge is automatically pulled back up to the starting position. Now you are at the top again and whether young or old you are now ready for the 300m downhill ride.

It's possible to hire toboggans (sledges) at the ticket office at the bottom of the lift. It's not necessary to reserve sledges, unless you are a large group (school groups etc.)


The toboggan lift is round about 800m away from the ski lift:


You can travel by train to the nearby Bad Harzburg and from there with the Bus route 820 directly to Torfhaus. Here is the link to the timetable.


When you are in the local area you can reach the lift from different areas:

  • from Altenau over the Steile-wand-strasse (L504) in the direction of Torfhaus and then left onto the B4
  • from Bad Harzburg or Braunlage by following the B4 to Torfhaus

A parking area can be found direct on the B4 for a small fee. 

The input for your sat-navs (navigation device) is as follows: Torfhaus Nr 36,38707 Altenau/Torfhaus

We look forward to your visit!
