Active family holidays in Austria

Holidays for all the family in the Hohe Tauern National Park

Are you looking for a hotel for varied, active family holidays in Salzburger Land for winter skiing holidays and hiking and nature holidays in summer or autumn? Here at the Hotel Post Krimml we warmly welcome families, whether coming alone with a child, or as a large family with granny and grandpa too. Here in the Hohe Tauern National Park and in the Zillertal Arena everyone finds their own personal outdoor adventure.


Beauties of nature & places of energy

Discover nature at first hand with your children. The Krimml waterfalls, the largest waterfalls in Europe, are just a few minutes from the hotel and are an impressive display of nature with miraculous powers; those suffering from asthma or other allergies can really breathe freely and appreciate the special, proven healing effects. Children can explore water as a substance hands-on along the path by the waterfalls and in the  “Wasser Wunder Welt Krimml” with its Aqua Park.

Our tip:

Combine a visit to the Krimml waterfalls or the “Wasser Wunder Welt” with a refreshing “Kneipp” experience at the Kneipp station on the Krimmler Ache river.

Active holidays in summer

How about a tough table tennis competition with kids against adults, or a volleyball match right next to the Hotel Post? See what your balancing skills are like on the slack line in the meadow by the hotel, or enjoy simply chilling on the comfortable terrace of our family-friendly hotel in Krimml.

Outdoor Action offers something for every age group in the unique mountain setting around Krimml. Discover Alpine nature with its remarkable flora and fauna on family hikes in the Hohe Tauern National Park or with National Park Rangers. Set out by bike along the valley or head up to a peak on a mountain bike. Our hotel is right next to the Tauernradweg bike trail, a route that leads over several stages from Salzburg to Passau. The bike route takes you along the Salzach and Saalach rivers through idyllic villages and past picturesque castles, with breathtaking views and lovely places to stop, rest, and play; ideal for biking with children. Take advantage of the electric bikes available to hire at the hotel. There is a well-developed network of charging stations in the vicinity, giving you limitless E-biking pleasure.

There are other activities available that add further variety to family summer holidays in Krimml such as crazy golf, tennis on the Krimml tennis courts, or beach volleyball.

Active holidays in winter

The Zillertal Arena offers skiing for all abilities with 143 km of pistes and 3 fun parks providing action and fun for kids and teenagers. The children’s lift right behind the Hotel Post Krimml is an ideal place for families with children, either for little ones to learn or to enjoy a quick leisurely ski. Whilst parents enjoy the sun on the terrace, children can make their first turns in the snow.

For those who prefer a more relaxed approach, the glistening winter scenery in the valley is perfect for winter walks, horse-drawn sleigh rides, making snowmen, or simply messing about in the snow. Guided snowshoe walks (see the tourist information programme for details) take you to some of the nicest spots around Krimml.

For fun and action, Neukirchen am Großvenediger is home to the longest lit toboggan run in the world; speedy winter fun for all ages.
