Salzburg Summer Family Holidays
The Salzburger Land is a Summer Hiking Paradise – Even for Families
The Grossarl Valley, the “Valley of Alpine Pastures”, offers families numerous short hikes that are easy to handle even with small children. We are happy to offer hiking route guidance once you arrive at the hotel. A family-favourite is “Rucki-Zucki's Gaudi-Alm” adventure playground at the Sport & Recreation Centre in Grossarl. And on hot summer days you can look forward to refreshingly cool waters at the outdoor swimming pool in Grossarl.
A good number of excursion destinations are “must-sees” in the summer. There are many activities and destinations throughout the Salzburger Land for parents and kids to enjoy together.
Family Excursion to the Eisriesenwelt Werfen
For those looking for an alternative to a hot summer day the Eisriesenwelt Werfen is worth a visit. In just 45 minutes from the hotel you’ll reach your destination. Don’t forget to pack some warm clothes! The Eisriesenwelt and its large ice caves hover around a cool 0°C – even in summer!
Experience Salzburg with the Family
The City of Salzburg (around 1 hour away via car) is another recommended excursion with highlights such as the Hellbrunn Zoo and the Trick Fountains of Hellbrunn Castle. If the weather should be uncooperative, a visit to the Museum of Natural History is a good alternative. Here your children can learn exciting facts about animals, technology and science, all the while having fun in this creative, hands-on learning centre.
Take the Entire Family to the Hohe Tauern National Park
Family hikes with parents and children throughout the Hohe Tauern National Park are the perfect opportunity to come face to face and learn about the flora and fauna of the Salzburg Alps and the nature of the Salzburger Land. Enquire at the hotel about guided hikes. At Hotel Edelweiss we are happy to offer you information about the right hikes and walks for you and your family.
The Hotel Edelweiss is the perfect starting point for a variety of family day trips and excursions throughout the Salzburger Land. Start thinking about your diverse family summer holiday and send us your binding booking enquiry today.
