‘Mountains for munchkins too’. In the past few years this motto has earned East Tyrol the reputation of being a ‘family holiday area’. Whoever thought that children only feel great at the sea has been misled. They will love the mountains, since boredom is just not an option. And why is boredom not an option? Well, it’s because there are hiking routes which are suitable for children. They provide variety and play options, almost at every turn. Adventure, entertainment and curiosity mean that weariness and boredom just don’t occur. And if children’s enthusiasm for hiking should wane, the prospect of a snack in an alpine lodge quickly transforms any querulousness into a happy smile.
Family festivals, like those in Hochpustertal, panning for gold, the Wichtelpark and Wichtelzug don’t just provide distraction for little holiday guests. Parents too really love the variety of programmes too. Exercise is the clincher during a family holiday in East Tyrol. Whether it is on a cycling tour along the emergent River Drau with its steady, slight inclines, or in Assling wildlife park which, on the circuit around it which lasts for some 1 ½ hours, provides superb views to the Dolomites, children just feel great and have fun. If you want to get straight down to the nitty-gritty of sports, then the summer toboggan run provides an unforgettable finale to a trip to the animal park.
Zedlacher Paradise is a superb, almost 600 year old larch forest and is a very popular hiking destination for young and old alike.

The Neualplseen lake area at 2436 m nestles wonderfully in the south-east of the almost 3000 m Schleinitz and to the south of the eastern Sattelkopf. Thanks to the ascent aids and the only slightly climbing and in part flat hiking trails, the Neualplseen provide an ideal excursion for families with children and older family members.
Hikes in the area around Obersee are ideal for families. Stone-age hunting material and a dugout canoe which have been found in the lake and in the surrounding area are evidence of the earliest settlements. Oberseehütte provides sustenance. Staller Sattel also enables you to cross over into South Tyrol’s Antholzertal.
