Holiday fun for kids & families

Grand adventures for the littlest explorers.

Holidays in the Ybbstal Alps offer a great time for the whole family.

Not only adults get their money's worth with the numerous excursion destinations, events as well as hiking and cycling opportunities in the Ybbstal Alps. Even the little explorers can experience, try out and learn a lot in the region while having fun is the main priority.

Excursions & museums

Whether it's outdoor action for little sports fans or historical and cultural things lovingly and interactively prepared for kids - across the Ybbstal Alps there are numerous opportunities to plan a family holiday. A lot of which also make for perfect bad weather alternatives.

How about a downhill bike experience in the Königsberg bike park in Hollenstein an der Ybbs, for example? Or do you prefer a lap on the pump track directly behind the middle school in Lunz am See? Cycling comfortably along the Ybbstal cycle path is also a perfect tip for families and at the ANKA bike rental in Lunz am See you can even rent children's e-bikes in addition to children's and cargo trailers, so that the whole family can jet through the Ybbstal Alps.

Or do you rather want to get to know the origins of Waidhofen and especially the history of children's toys? Then you will find what you are looking for when you visit the 5-Elements-Museum in Waidhofen/Ybbs. Are you interested in the last remnants of the primeval forest in the Alps and want to fly a lap with the Ural owl? Then off you go to the "Haus der Wildnis" exhibition in Lunz am See. Anyone who explores the world of iron in the FeRRUM Ybbsitz is provided with enough knowledge to prove their skills themselves.

The new story trail in Lackenhof is also waiting for many adventurers to explore the secrets of the forest. But you prefer to travel with a bow and arrow? Then even the little archers can show what they can do in the 3D archery course in Lackenhof. Along the themed tour at "Mendlingtal" in Göstling an der Ybbs, the little guests can look forward to a jewel hunt on tuesdays at 10 a.m. in July and August.

All this and many other experiences are waiting to be explored. All family-friendly excursion destinations can be found below.
