The “FAMilenhotels OStirol”, are family-friendly hotels, the so called “famos”. They are expert at satisfying the particular needs and wishes of families. Three hosts, scattered in the region between Hohe Tauern and the “family nest” of Tyrol “Hochpustertal”, focus on revitalisation, adventure and the experience of nature. East Tyrol, in summer, offers a colourful and varied programme for children of every age.

Wichtelpark – Park of the Gnomes
The “Wichtelpark” lies on the south border of Sillian and offers a large range of ideas to relax and to play, including the longest slide of East Tyrol, an attraction for all ages.
Especially little children love to encounter their friends at the autodrome. Action in the air is to be found on the swinging-rope, on the see-saw, on rocking chairs for all family members and climbing-walls. A water park promises even more fun. New is a mini-golf course with 18 holes.
10 interesting points for children are on the programme of the holiday region “Hochpustertal”: “the adventures of Alfons Adler”, “climbing the castle”, “torch rambling to Burg Heinfels”, “Olympics for the family” & “gold panning”, “minidisco” and much more.
