Day trips with Children
Daytrip to the Grossglockner
Adventurous hours for all ages: your Glockner trip with children
Daytrip to the Glockner with small children (up to primary school)
The youngest ones stand tall on the Glockner! They will find ample space to move about under parental supervision at several playgrounds along the Grossglockner High Alpine Road and at huts and mountain inns. Basket swings, seesaws, monkey bars, sand playgrounds und more: everything is taken care of at the playgrounds, which are fully suitable for children. Tip: paths suited to prams and buggies, 200 alpine animals and a game park plus gastronomy are waiting for you at Ferleiten wild park at the Fusch-Ferleiten road charge point.
Trips with older children (primary school)Explorers and adventures will feel right at home at the four themed playgrounds. Activities include digging, looking for gold, having a snowball fight in summer and feeling a marmot’s gnawing tooth. Museums and exhibitions offer guided tours suitable for children during the holiday months, while the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe invites young alpinists to sleuth the glacier. Those that like handicrafts and solving riddles will dig the cut-out sheet of the Alpenliebe exhibition: check out the exhibition, discover words in scrambled letters and fold a paper bivouac! Tip: geocaching on the Grossglockner, an exciting alternative for older children who think that hiking is just way too boring.
Daytrip to Austria with teenagersHiking? No, thank you. Trip with the parents? Yawn! Pique teenagers’ interest with a spectacular detour to the Arctic on the Glockner: a hike through the deep blue ice of the largest glacier of the Eastern Alps won’t even leave the coolest kids cold. Guided adventure hikes with a National Park ranger are equally popular with teens. The parents can chill out on the sun terrace in the meantime. Sounds great!
