Hiking with children

And there’s so much to explore in the mountain world of the Grossarl Valley: colourful alpine meadows with alpine roses and gentians, caves and tree roots to hide in the local cows and sheep. Where’s the marmot that just whistled? In your hiking holiday in Grossarl you’ll find interesting footpaths for children of all ages, routes suitable for pushchairs, themen hikes and mountain lakes. How about a ride in a cable car and start your tour from higher up in the alpine region.

Wandertaxi & hiking tips

All about hiking with little “big” mountaineers

Small feet also get tired – when hiking becomes too demanding for your children, then the wandertaxis are a safe option. From May to October they transport you up to alpine huts open for refreshment, starts of hikes and to fabulous viewing points. You can also take the local bus to the starting point of your tours.


The wandertaxis and buses can be used for half price with your guest card.
