Your adventurous summer with the family
A fabulous family holiday in the unique Hochkönig region
Above all, a family holiday in summer needs plenty of fun and action. The idyllic Hochkönig region is perfect for both. With exciting excursion destinations, magnificent panoramic views and the beneficial effects of the high altitude of the Salzburg Alps, your summer holiday together with the family will be absolutely breath-taking.
A diverse range of highlights for the children’s programme
The Hochkönig region’s selection of attractions for children is remarkable for its diversity and guaranteed fun. Children from six years of age can run riot on the high ropes course, try out some archery in the forest, go fishing or simply play in the fresh air. The hours will simply fly by in the company of highly-trained supervisors and other children. And best of all, when you stay at the family-friendly Hotel Bergheimat, your children can enjoy all these excursions for free, all summer!
Animal adventures at the Bergdorf der Tiere in Mühlbach
Rabbits, marmots, pigs, chickens, sheep, goats, cows and more – at Mühlbach’s Bergdorf der Tiere, your children can meet all the animals that live in the Alpine meadows of the region. Your little ones will enjoy the play-based introduction to the habits and habitat of the native animals and an exciting search for tracks. Along with the petting zoo, informative themed pathways such as the marmot trail or ant trail will leave your children’s eyes dancing. There are also some more exotic animals to meet at Mühlbach’s Bergdorf der Tiere. The absolute highlight is the pair of alpacas at the Kniegut adventure farm.
Geocaching in the Hochkönig hiking region
A shared treasure hunt in the Mühlbach area and throughout the Hochkönig hiking region is a guaranteed source of excitement. When geocaching, you and your children will need a treasure map and a GPS before setting out on this exciting scavenger hunt. This extraordinary adventure comes in easier and more challenging variations. On Austria’s first official geotour, you will need to determine the “hiking code” – a thrilling and unforgettable game of guesswork with your loved ones!
Fun and action at Toni’s Almspielplatz playground
Like the Bergdorf der Tiere, an excursion to Toni’s Almspielplatz playground near the Karbachalm is sure to bring a smile to little faces. The slacklines, slides, climbing tower, Alpine frisbee and other facilities ensure an action-packed adventure for your loved ones. The meadow paths are dotted with a number of treehouses and an enormous sandpit where children and parents can look for gemstones together. Each child will receive a free ice-cream at the Karbachalm if they show their excavated treasures to the friendly staff. Travel on the mountain railways and your visit to the playground are free with a Hochkönig card.
The Natrun adventure mountain in Maria Alm
Cheerful sliding parties, a family-friendly flow trail for mountain-biking, an amusing children’s tree path, a minigolf course and much more can be found at the Natrun adventure mountain in Maria Alm. Some of these attractions are free with your Hochkönig card. You can enjoy a marvellous ride on the Natrunbahn railway up the Prinzenberg to the adventure playground. After an approximately one-hour hike to the Jufenalm, you can take a look at the majestic red deer, roe deer, mouflon, rabbits and many other animals grazing contentedly in the fields of the wildlife enclosure.
Family-friendly adventure hikes around the Hochkönig
Experience the magnificent nature of the Hochkönig as a family with a diverse range of family-friendly adventure hikes. You can share the experience of a family hike full of exciting discoveries – along the forest adventure trail in Maria Alm, the magical butterfly path or one of the mysterious legendary hikes. And the fun begins as soon as you get on the free hiking bus.
Exciting animal stories in the children’s rooms at Hotel Bergheimat
After a day of exciting adventures around the Hochkönig region, your children can unwind with a thrilling bedtime story. Gabi Bürgler, innkeeper of the Bürglalm, has written her own book for children. You will find the children’s volume “Legendary tales of the animals of the Hochkönig herb meadows” in the children’s rooms of the suites at your Hotel Bergheimat in Mühlbach.
Tips for the Bürglalm: Gabi’s Kaiserschmarrn pancakes might well be the “best Kaiserschmarrn in the region”. In the summer, these are served in a spectacular setting in a golden wagon – just as the legend describes.
Families with children will feel particularly at home in the four-star Hotel Bergheimat in Mühlbach. The spacious family rooms and suites include separate children’s rooms which, together with the warm and welcoming atmosphere throughout the hotel, ensure your family will enjoy their stay.
