Activities and adventures for children

An active Wildschönau holiday for kids

There’s loads to discover for children on a holiday in the Wildschönau holiday region even if the weather isn’t quite as nice as it should be
  • How about a game of crazy golf at the Hotel Sonnschein in Niederau. The course is right next to the Auenweg path.  Bookings on tel. +43 5339 8353
  • Girls love ponies. Small children can go pony riding for just € 7 at the Hotel Wastlhof in Niederau. Bigger kids can take riding lessons at the Wastlhof stables.
  • In the Foisching deer park above Niederau watch the deer being fed or just grazing on the lovely mountain side park.

A visit to a museum doesn’t have to be boring

  • The 1st Museum of Wood in Auffach gives a fascinating insight into the history of wood carving and the timber industry in the region. Curiosities can be seen and of course purchased. There’s a woodworm farm, a wooden bike, wooden underwear to name but a few.

  • Every Thursday is a craft fare in the Z’Bach Farming Museum in Oberau. Children can make their own honey candles, or bake their own bread. Entrance is free with the Wildschönau Card. Our Dragon Club pays the museum a visit every week.

  • In the Silver mine in Thierbach families crawl deep underground through the old tunnel system tot he fairytale grotto where silver and copper were mined centuries ago. The entrance is also free with the Wildschönau Card.

How do they make the holes in the cheese?

On the Holz Alm on top of the Markbachjoch in Niederau families can learn all about the cheese making art. The delicious cheeses can be tasted and of course purchased. Fresh buttermilk and delicious snacks are served on the lovely terrace with a playground nearby. The guided tour costs € 1.50 for children and € 3 for adults.
The walk through the woods to the alm is suitable for children.

 

Children who are 140 cm or taller can get that Tarzan feeling in the Zauberwinkel High Rope Course in Oberau. A tandem paragliding trip is a shot of pure adrenalin and bookable at the Wildschönau Flight School. There are discounts with the Wildschönau Card.
