Activities outdoors and in the mountains

Whether with sporting endeavours outdoors such as cosy hiking, extended mountain biking – thanks to free mountain bikes and e-bikes at Hotel Alpenhof, everyone comes through the alpine landscape effortlessly –, skiing throughout the year on the glacier, rock climbing or climbing on one of the nine vie ferrate in the Zillertal, in Hintertux you can enjoy your variety-packed family holiday in Tyrol in the summer. The Tux adventure worlds with their themed hiking trails for adults and children add to the variety-packed range of opportunities in the Tyrolean Alps.

Have fun with Luis' Kugelsafari

Gletscherfloh Safari and other family highlights near Hintertux

When hiking is combined with adventures and exciting challenges it is even more fun for children. On the Gletscherfloh Safari, an adventure course with tricky questions awaits little explorers, who get closer and closer to the treasure accompanied by “Gletscherfloh Luis”. Simply pick up the treasure map at the till at the valley station in Hintertux and off you go! The glacier world just above is also worth a family outing: children and the young-at-heart really get their money’s worth with tubing, a snowball fight in the middle of summer or playing in the Sommerberg Flea Park.

A special highlight for hiking friends young and old is Luis' Kugelsafari with two exciting ball runs and a giant ball run tower with loops, ball crane and climbing wall. Be it through the wave track, the ringing chimes or through the narrow glacier crevice – on the exciting adventure course in the Sommerbergalm hiking area boredom doesn't stand a chance.

Fun & games on the mountains in the holiday region Tux-Finkenberg

Several further special attractions in the mountains in the Zillertal provide a thrilling experience for both young and old. In Pepis Kinderland on the Penkenjoch, a giant trampoline, a labyrinth and 8 metres high wooden “Pepi” await young, enthusiastic players. Inside the adorable, giant bear, a playhouse on three floors with a climbing wall and a distorting mirror surprises its discoverers. The brave ones can also dare to climb the two new towers: You move on 7 metres above the ground between the towers on suspension bridges up to the 15 metres long slide, on which you can then move downwards rapidly. Your heart rate will definitely increase! If you prefer to stay close to the ground, you can test your climbing skills in the “Niedrigseilgarten”, an easier and lower ropes course right next door. 30 different elements pose challenges to all ages at different levels of difficulty. Great fun for the whole family!

The Almspielerei Eggalm, on the other hand, is the perfect place for young mountain lovers: The adventure playground in the Eggalm hiking area at 1,950 invites even the youngest to explore around water ponds and wooden alpine animals with various play stations and thus brings closer the special features of the alpine pasture and water habitat in a playful way.

Wellness in the Zillertal for the whole family

A peaceful atmosphere, a large garden with a view of the impressive Tux Alps and all around extensive green areas wherever the eye looks. While the adults receive a massage, relax in the alpine sauna or treat themselves to a professional cosmetic treatment, your children experience fun and action in the children's play area with alpine stream. The whole family can either swim together in the health-promoting family steam bath or relax in the comfortable family chill-out room. The wellness area VITALIS SPA at Hotel Alpenhoff in Hintertux produces the ideal relaxation effect for all members of the family.

Swimming fun in the panoramic indoor adventure pool

The spacious indoor pool with view of the Alps is great fun for all ages. A 8 x 16 m pool invites you to swim and splash around while families with small children enjoy a separate children’s pool. The indoor pool is the first port of call for families in particular after playing in the Alpine garden or outdoor activities in the fresh mountain air.
