  1. Gerlos: Erlebenisgarten Riederklamm

With challenging courses, zip lines and special children’s stations, the park offers unforgettable experiences for everyone looking for adventure in the middle of the beautiful nature of Gerlos .

  1. Wildschönau: Kundler Klamm

The enchanting Kundler Klamm is one of the most popular hiking trails for both young and old. According to local legend, a dragon once freed itself from a rock here, which enhances the mystical atmosphere of this place. This hiking trail connects the Hochtal Wildschönau with the Unterinntal and offers visitors a beautiful hiking experience of three kilometers along impressive rock formations.

The river is littered with geological stone types and invites you to look for unique specimens. Along the route there are numerous places where children can play and where you can relax by the cool water. As an added bonus, you can enjoy a train ride in the Wildschönau area between Mühltal and the entrance to the Kundler Klamm, highly recommended for families with children.

  1. Westendorf: Salvenaland

According to our guests, the children’s park in Salvenaland (Hopfgarten) took the crown as the most popular summer activity of 2023. The park has a summer toboggan run that offers panoramic views of the entire recreation park. You can also enjoy the swimming lake with the mountains in the background. Of course there is also a heated swimming pool, paddling pool and water trampoline where the little ones can have fun.

Furthermore, sports enthusiasts can play handball, football and volleyball. Children can enjoy the giant bouncy castles, climbing bridges, giant swings and the cable car. For even more action, guests can visit the mini cars and the challenging 18-hole mini golf course.

The children’s park in Salvenaland offers an abundance of fun and activities for all ages, making it without a doubt the most loved experience in summer 2023.

  1. Kaprun: Kitzsteinhorn

In the summer of 2023, the Kitzsteinhorn was the most popular activity in Kaprun. The Kitzsteinhorn is not just any mountain; it is the only glacier ski area in Salzburg that offers 100% snow certainty all year round. Thanks to the “Gipfelwelt 3000”, this mountain is accessible all year round and offers a range of activities for everyone. The country’s highest viewpoint, the “Top of Salzburg” panoramic platform at 3,029 meters above sea level, offers a beautiful view of Austria’s highest mountains.

The Maiskogel in the center of Kaprun is the ideal place for families. Here you will not only find beautiful ski slopes, but also the Alpine roller coaster called “Maisiflitzer” at the valley station, along with a large playground for children.

At the Kitzsteinhorn you can enjoy everything the Alps have to offer 365 days a year. It is the ultimate place for relaxation and adventure, all at an altitude of 3000 meters above sea level.
