A holiday with children in the valley of games
Saalbach-Hinterglemm: a unique world of adventure on a family holiday in the summer
The summer in Saalbach-Hinterglemm is beautiful, colourful and lively. Families can expect a world full of fantasy, outdoor experiences and adventure on a summer holiday in the Kitzbühel Alps. Feeding the deer, paddling at the water playground or going on riddle and discovery hunts with funny fairytale figures? Or a day trip to the high rope course or the fairytale forest? One thing's for sure: it's never boring in the valley of games, the Glemm Valley.
And the best thing about all this adventure is that much of it is free.
Go in search of the stolen hats on the Reiterkogel in Hinterglemm. There are 10 riddles to solve along the 3.5 km long hiking trail to get to the secret magic word. With a portion of courage, brains and skill both young and old adventurers can finally get to the end. Another attraction is Expedition Kodok where you go on in search of clues along a 3 km long circular hiking trail using a treasure map. Numerous adventures have to be passed and hints have to be tracked down to master this challenge. Berg Kodok and Expedition Kodok are suitable for children aged between 7 and 14.
The liquid element can be experienced with all the senses at Teufelswasser in the valley head. The lovingly developed theme park provides an entertaining day trip for the whole family with lots of game and wellness stations.
Right next to Teufelswasser on the Lindlingalm there's a huge adventure playground where everything is built out of wood. In this space with natural materials creativity and a thirst for adventure are given a new lease of life. Imaginative game stations, such as extreme mini golf, a tree disc puzzle, tin throwing, a milking competition on a wooden cow and many more provide hours of fun surrounded by the nature of the Salzburger Land.
The fairytale forest
Wood also plays a crucial part in Hinterglemm's fairytale forest. Lovingly carved popular fairytale figures come to life and can be touched. The entrance to the fairytale forest is right next to the tennis hall in Hinterglemm, a great skate park and climbing tower are also adjacent to this.
The treetop trail and Golden Gate Bridge of the Alps
Observe the forest and its surrounding area from above for once on Europe's highest situated treetop hiking trail. The 1 km long circular trail over the treetops goes over a 200 m long suspension bridge at roughly 40 metres high and is open all year round. Right next to the treetop trail you can test out your skill close to the ground in a low rope course with 20 stations.
High rope course
The stations in Austria's largest high rope course reach up to 40 metres high. The course is available in different levels of difficult and therefore is a thrilling experience for both adults and children (from 130 cm tall). Besides the 200 different stations one special attraction are the 30 zip wires some of which lead spectacularly beyond the valley. Glide over the valley head at up to 80 km/h at 120 metres high: that's something for the very brave.
Hinterglemm family park
While the parents relax, the children can have fun at lovingly set up game stations.
Montelino's adventure trail
From the top station on the Kohlmais in Saalbach to the middle station you head through the forest and over mountain pastures to find the little clown's lost friends and toys.
