Eisriesenwelt (Giant Ice World) and Castle: there is a lot going on in Werfen
Werfen cannot only boast about the very impressive Hohenwerfen Fortress visible from a great distance and dominating the Salzach Valley from above. Aside from the castle tour, the falconry displays are highly recommended. Furthermore, the entrance to the world’s largest known ice cave can be found nearby with its tunnel system stretching over 42 kilometers. Inside the cave, sensational and grotesque ice formations can be found during the guided tours: highly recommended and only 40 minutes away.
Krimmler Waterfalls & Water WonderWorld
The Krimmler Waterfalls, with a height of fall of 380 meters, are the largest and highest waterfalls of Europe. You and your family can be looking forward to a most welcome cooldown on hot summer days with a well-designed waterfall path and the WaterWonderWorld very close to it. Certainly worthwhile seeing and experiencing; approximately 1hour and 20minutes away by car.
Zoo and Hellbrunn Fountains
Hellbrunn is Salzburg’s most family-friendly part: in former times, the Archbischop’s summer residence hosting the unique trick fountains was located here outside the city gates. Everybody gets wet somewhere in between playful wit and ingenuity. On top of that, the previously only mechanically operated trick fountains are a true marvel of technology. In addition, there is Hellbrunn Zoo stretching along the cliff and has a lot to offer from Alpine dwellers all the way to exotic animals and a large range of large cats ... 50 minutes by car
Mühlbach at the Hochkönig
The Hochkönig knows very well how to impress all its guests. We highly recommend the Animal Mountain Village in Mühlbach to young guests. The native Alpine animals can be observed from very close proximity and can even be touched. Short hikes to neighboring huts offer other options. Slackline Park, Bogen parcours, Flying Fox Park and many more offer a varied world of experience ... 40 minutes by car
Children Adventure Land Wildlife Ferleiten
Ferleiten is situated at the Glockner Road and at an altitude of 1,100 meters and above. A theme and leisure park able to inspire and thrill the entire family was built facing the breathtaking valley head of the Käfer Valley. For example, the highly interesting Alpine zoo with various game species, bisons, snow hares and the new water section can take your breath away; so can the leisure park and various hikes starting here ... 40 minutes by car
Sankt Johann’s Geisterberg
Start with the Alpendorf-Seilbahn from St. Johann im Pongau up to the Geisterberg (mountain of spirits). One has to be afraid of very few ghosts and spirits though: most of the earth, fiery and water spirits as well as sylphes stand for and guarantee great fun. Be it on the dwarf path for the youngest guests or the Alpine theme park for older children or on the various wonderfully arranged footpaths and hiking trails for grown-up children and adults.
