The push sledge is very popular in the Spreewald in winter. The push sledge is a wagon-like vehicle on skids that offers space for up to two people inside and is pushed from behind.

In times past, the push sledge was used as a common means of transport in winter to carry children, elderly people or shopping across the frozen rivers.

Sledging fun

Nowadays, a ride on a push sledge is one of the most popular leisure activities in the wintry Spreewald. A little tip: Not only ice hikers can push the push sled, but the carriage also provides a secure hold for insecure skaters. You have the option of hiring a push sledge. You can get information about this at your tourist information office.
