Activities for kids
At the hotel
The large outdoor areas surrounding the hotel are great for kids to run around, explore and make new friends. There are lots of different options to keep them busy, including a playground, a sandpit, a Hobbit house and a tree hut.
Kids will love meeting and feeding the gentle farm animals that live on the hotel’s grounds, and the on-site petting zoo is an extra special experience for city kids. Let them try their hand at milking a cow or grooming a horse. The zoo has rabbits, sheep, cows, horses and donkeys, as well as friendly cats and dogs.
Ideal on rainy days or lazy afternoons, the indoor playroom features plenty of games, books and puzzles to have fun with your kids. There is also a climbing wall and a tipi, as well as lots of material to build a fort or a cave. In the evenings there is a small drawing activity offered during dinner in the playroom.
There are plenty of water activities at the hotel for the whole family to enjoy, including a family sauna to relax after a busy day outside, a shallow children’s pool for the little ones to practice swimming, a splash pool for babies and an infinity indoor/outdoor pool, as well as a child-friendly waterslide.
Arts & Crafts
In the afternoons, the hotel organises fun activities at the workshop. Some highlights include building wooden swords and magic wands, making animals from material found in the surrounding woods and painting fabric bags. All of these are lovely crafts to take home as a souvenir or to make the grandparents happy. Make sure you register at the reception to save a spot for your family.
The hotel organises regular guided, family-friendly hiking trips for a small additional fee. Pack your picnic, some sunscreen and put on some comfortable clothes and shoes. Don’t forget to register in advance at the reception, as there are a limited number of places available for each outing.
Climbing park in Issing
Take the kids to KronAction, the largest high-wire climbing park in South Tyrol, for an adrenaline-packed day of family fun. A professional team of experienced climbers are available to assist throughout the day, and there are courses designed for all experience levels. The easiest one is open to children as young as 2,5. Don’t forget to wear sturdy and comfortable shoes. All other necessary equipment, such as helmets and climbing gear, is available on-site. The park is only a short 5-minute drive away from the hotel, right by Issing Lake, where you will also find a restaurant. You can find more information here.
This majestic castle is one of the biggest and most beautiful in the region. It is located on a steep rocky spur in Sand in Taufers, a small market town in South Tyrol. Children and adults alike will be fascinated by the castle’s large library, prison, and torture chamber. Guided tours of the castle are available, and you can also choose the self-guided option by following the information signs spread throughout the complex.
Playground and Mini golf in Terento
In the village of Terento (Terenten in German) you will find a large outdoor playground, which includes hydrotherapy facilities and water play areas. There is also an 18-hole mini golf course. Click here for more information.
The Skyscraper giant swing
At a height of 2.275m above sea level, on top of Mount Kronplatz, you will find the Skyscraper, a gravity-defying giant swing. If you’re feeling adventurous, swing into the air and take in the spectacular 360-degree panoramic view that stretches from the Dolomites to the Zillertal Alps while flying as high as an eagle. Younger children can go bungee jumping on a large trampoline or try out the via ferrata. Mount Kronplatz is about 1 hour away from the hotel by car.
Outdoor Family Parks
Children will enjoy running around one of these two outdoor family parks: Gitschberg Sun Park or Jochtal Adventure Park. They feature large outood play areas, including giant trampolines, extra slong slides, panoramic platforms as well as restaurants.
