Snowbiking in Immenstadt – get ready for a new kind of exciting winter sport

If you're looking for a sporty activity for the winter, speeding down over five kilometres of natural sled run on the Mittaggipfel on a sled or snowbikeis perfect for both adults and children over the age of six.
Discover destination

Instead of wheels, the snow bikes in Immenstadt im Allgäu feature skids. From elegant weaving to daring schusses and bold drifting, anything is possible. The best thing about it is that the whole thing might look fast and action-packed, but snow biking is actually easy to learn and very safe after a quick induction. The risk of injury is minimal and it’s easy on the joints.

Person beim Gleitschirmfliegen mit Bergpanorama

Paragliding across Upper Bavaria

As free as a bird: Book a tandem flight over the Blomberg and just relax while your experienced pilot takes care of the steering.
Discover destination

In the winter, there's ways other than the slopes for adventure seekers to get down the mountain – paragliders being one of them. Paragliding doesn’t only provide a rush of adrenaline and beautiful views in the summer: if you love soaring up in the air, we recommend a wintry tandem flight from Blomberg mountain. Travel up in a chair lift before soaring at a lofty height over ice-covered tree tops and snowy slopes.

Lasertag Raum im Dunkeln

Science fiction: Laser Quest in Würzburg

Ever wished that you could beam yourself into a video game? Well then, get yourself down to the Laser Quest arena in Würzburg! The arena is not too far from the station.
Discover destination

Storms and sleet – in short, wintry weather is simply awful. For adrenaline junkies this doesn’t necessarily mean vegging out in an armchair in front of the television with tea and a blanket. Instead they can simply immerse themselves in their very own action film and hunt opponents with laser phasers in the futuristic game environment at the laser tag arena in Würzburg. Between neon-coloured lights and fierce battles, the foul weather is quickly forgotten.
