Winter is always that time of the year when most people try to spend as little time as possible outdoors. Just because it is cold outside, it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with the snow. One nice way to enjoy the snow is toboggan. Berlin is not a City where you will find hill next to hill. But hidden in the Center-Parks there are some nice little hills that just wait for you to slide down on them.
The closest one to the Hostel would be the “Weinbergspark”. You will find it along Kastanienallee. Its maybe a 5 minute walk from the Hostel. This little Park offers a beginners slide. Thats something for you and your kids.
If you are looking for some more speed and action, i recommend the “Mauerpark”. Here you will find young and old having fun on the hill. Between sundays flea market and the Max-Schmeling-Halle, it can be perfect sledding. The nearly 40-meter-high hill features on a length of 100 meters a lot of space. Nevertheless, it is very crowded especially on the weekends, Caution is advised!
Here some other toboggan hotspots that are nice but not that close to the Hostel.
1. Volkspark Prenlauer Berg
The right toboggan run for beginners! Short downhill, but sparsely populated. Small, but nice. The triple peaks of the mountain of rubble measures 91 meters at its highest point.
The different slopes provide the right level of difficulty for every skill level and therefore also skiers and snowboarders romp at the station. A great getaway, but be careful: sometimes very steep.

3. Volkspark Friedrichshain
This run is something for professional carriage driver, 78 meters downhill guarantee high speed and pure thrills. Caution: fast and steep descents! The small mountain bunker 48 meters it does well.
