The Story

“Before long, long time ago when one found on Forstalm nothing except marvellous Alpine grasslands, we came along day by day on the way to the alp to look after the cows, goats and sheep.”

1972 was the year of birth of the Forsthofalm, built only with the help of friends, there were only 40 seats and no guest-rooms.

Eight years later the street was developed and there originated the idea of the illuminated natural toboggan run.
