Sommerrodelbahn(s) are cars(or Luge) on tracks(or concrete slabs) that race down a mountain. They are all over Europe. Some are better than others. A decent one is the Blombergbahn near Munich. A cable system will tow you up the mountain... then once at the top gravity takes over. You do have a hand brake... but most people will brave it out and not use the brakes too much.

There is a nice one near where I live, just North of Nurnberg(NOT near the 'Ring)... In the town of Pottenstein. Its a little over a two hour's drive from Munich. I would only say stop by IF you are in this area. Pottenstein is in the Fränkische Schweiz or "little Swiss". Because the houses are built atop of large rocks and it is quite the charming area. Many Germans come to the Fränkische Schweiz to vacation at. This is also one of the few regions of Germany whee they have found dinosaur bones.

I saved the BEST two places for last...

The wildest best, sommerrodelbahnen I've seen, its near Lake Constance or the Bodensee as the Germans call it. It's called: Alpsee Bergwelt... and its unbelievable, when you see how big this place is. I would highly recommend visiting this place! Its also open all year round!

Hasenhorn-rodelbahn... in the Black Forrest(Schwarzwald) area. This is such an awesome place. Its quite high up on a mountain. Really breath taking views. This is one rodelbahn you won't ever forget! Its located close to Freiburg - the heart of the Black Forrest area where all those German KuKoo Clocks are made. A great area to visit and drive around.
