    Okay, if this video doesn't terrify you, I don't know what will. If you happen to be in NRW, you can visit the Winterberg bobsled track, the "Bobbahn". The truly brave can even take a ride down the 5,250 foot track at 60 miles an hour.

    No thanks.

    2. Skiing in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

    There are plenty of runs to choose from in Garmisch. One day isn't enough to explore everything wintery Bavaria has to offer!

    3. Extreme Sledding in Oberbayern

    The sledding track in Oberbayern is one of the longest in the world. It is over 4 miles long and nearly 3,000 feet high and it takes almost thirty minutes to slide down it. In a word: spectacular.

    4. Indoor Skiing in Bottrop

    In case you would prefer to be inside for your winter sport experiences, Bottrop is your place. The alpincenter is the longest indoor slope in the world. At 640 meters, the slope takes a few minutes to get down and is certainly a unique winter sports adventure. Take a day trip from Dortmund or Duesseldorf all year round!

    5. Ski jumping in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

    6. Paragliding in Oberstdorf
