"High Five" children's adventure worlds on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road What the "Big Five" are to a safari participant in Africa - elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard - the "High Five" are to a visitor to the Grossglockner High Alpine Road: ibex, golden eagle, marmot, apollo butterfly and alpine bumblebee. Alongside countless other animals, these five fantastic creatures, which symbolise the adaptability and diversity of life in high alpine environments, have their home along the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. From now on, our young visitors can discover the "High Five" in children's adventure worlds that are currently being created in special places along the High Alpine Road. Number one on the discovery list are the cute marmots!

New children's adventure world from July 2024: Meet the Mankei!

From July 2024, the first of a total of five adventure worlds to be built at the Haus Alpine Naturschau will be all about the furry, furry marmot and interesting, amazing and entertaining facts about its habitat. Over the next three years, the other four adventure worlds will be created for the other High Five at Piffkar, Hochtor, Schöneck and Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe. 

Marmot playground: exercise, fun & games 

On a spacious playground at the Haus Alpine Naturschau, which is equipped with interactive and informative elements, you can encounter the "Mankeis" in a variety of ways: whether you take a selfie with the funny excavator marmot or whether you - just like the marmot - slip through an ingenious cave system in which each room has its own task. Play equipment that puts balance, spatial perception and orientation skills to the test, gives children back the fun and joy of movement in a playful way.  

Take a break: rest & quiet  

Marmots and children have a lot in common! Those who race around, play and are curious need a lot of energy! And that's why they also need a long break! The "High Five" children's adventure world also caters for this: on rest islands, you can let your gaze wander.
