Illuminated training track for "hungry" cross-country skiers.

The starting point of the night trail is at the Nordic Center. The 2 km long course on the Schanzen grounds near the Sportingpark is illuminated every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 18.00-21.00 and offers a varied training course with the hilly terrain. Since 2018 there has been a loop over the Bänzenrüti, an additional, demanding but varied section, which can also be bypassed. The track is prepared for classic and skating. The Nordic Center next to the track offers changing and showering facilities.
