Family holidays in Ahrntal valley and Sand in Taufers/Campo Tures

Adventure and fun for young and old

A successful family holiday must offer something for every family member and be fun. The Ahrntal valley in South Tyrol is ideal for this challenge – variety for every age from 0 - 100, whether it be spring, summer, autumn or winter.

During a family excursion on buggy friendly hiking trails our youngest guests will be completely satisfied. Every village has a children’s playground. Families with children of every age find the appropriate play equipment. Running,climbing sand boxes, climbing frames, slides and seesaws.

With the children fun program “The Farmhouse Gang” children aged 6-12 can experience wood and water and the variety of South Tyrolean agriculture with all the animals on a mountain farm in the summer. Tension and action for the whole family is guaranteed in the "Alpine Coaster Klausberg-Flitzer".

In the South Tyrolean theme nature parks in Sand in Taufers/Campo Tures and Kasern/Casere children learn in a playful way how the mountains originated and what’s about the plants and animals. On the Kneipp trail in Weißenbach/Rio Bianco (with playground) children lean the effect of water and also on the sun trails of the Ahrntal valley there are different playing opportunities. Little bookworms can rummage in the shelves of the public libraries.
For the adventurers in the family you can top it with witching hours at the Taufers Castle, a ride on the mine railway in the mining museum in Prettau/Predoi  or with rafting on the Ahr.


Our family-friendly accomodations in Ahrntal valley offer a family friendly ambience for a successful family holiday in South Tyrol and are looking forward to welcoming their adult and little guests.

Water park Klausberg

Little (but also big) holidaymakers like to splash about in our “Waterworld” on hot summer days. Here, visitors of the mountain can unpack the swimming trunks and put their swimming skills to the test in the water world at the mountain station Klausberg. Part of the water world are swimming pools, bridges and the bear slide. A water world for the whole family.

Children`s zoo at Speikboden

In the small children`s zoo at Speikboden at 2000m, everyone feels comfortable - whether bunnies, chickens, calves and small ponies, everyone has found a nice home in the small huts at Speikboden!
For children a visit to the zoo is a special moment, as the animals can be touched and stroked. During the summer, there will be born new animal-babies.

After a 10-minutes walk from the station Speikboden Alm (accessible by cablecar), the children´s zoo is located directly next to the valley station of the chairlift Sonnklar!

Free entrance!

Zipline Klausberg

Goose bumps, rush of altitude, adrenaline rush. Guaranteed. Curious? Fasten your seatbelts and off you go - the Klausberg zipline is waiting for you. Breathtaking and not for the faint of heart!

With the zipline you will cross the so-called "Brugga-Klomme" in eagle flight. Starting from the Kristallalm, you will plunge uncompromisingly towards the Almboden in the rush of speed. Something for the real adrenaline junkies among us and for those who want to become one.


Hiking with llamas - a great experience for the whole family!



Via Ferrata "Pirats" for kids Speikboden

Gain your first experience on a Via Ferrata! The new Via Ferrata at Speikboden is specially designed for children between 6 and 12 years. Under the motto PIRATES the little ones can learn climbing on routes suitable for children.

Test your climbing skills! Are you fit for the ascent? Directly next to the exit of the cableway - station Speikboden Alm

Alpine Coaster "Klausberg Flitzer"
Whether you are young or simply young at heart, the toboggan run at the Klausberg summit station delivers a nice kick of adrenalin to all thrill-seekers.

The coaster hurtles down for 1,800 metres, travelling at speeds of up to 40 kilometres per hour – you determine how fast you want to go: push the lever forward to give gas and pull the lever back to brake. The Klausberg Flitzer, known for its jumps and 360-degree spins, is something that you and your family will never forget.
Landscape slides Speikboden

In 2023, a brand new adrenaline rush is coming to the Speikboden. We can’t wait to welcome you to CROSS WOODS, Italy’s first forest slide park.
In July, things will really get off to a flying start when the first visitors go speeding down the four landscape slides. Meanwhile, newbies to the world of sliding can find their feet in the small slide field
under the trees.

And it goes without saying that CROSS WOODS is a zero-emissions attraction; visitors walk to the top on foot and are whisked away by the force of gravity and their own body weight.

Fly-Line Wasserfall

Betake yourself on a spectacular journey through the woods: swing your way through the trees soundlessly like a bird through narrow and wide curves, with small and big jumps back down to the ground. An adventure for the whole family. 

Balance Parcour Klausberg
Sort of like a high ropes course and yet different. The balance-parcours at Klausberg will make you tremble. Here the little ones have the possibility of mastering obstacles in several different ways.

It all takes place at a safe, yet exciting level. This parcours is to be found directly at the water world. Here, skill and balance are required, but do not worry, nothing can happen. The obstacles are placed at a very low level in order to ensure optimum safety.
Archery in Ahrntal valley
After a professional instruction and a few test shots at the targets, everyone - equipped with bow and arrow - can start the adventure.
Taufers Castle
The particular homey character of the feudal Taufers Castle astonishes around 75,000 visitors every year. Children enjoy the Chamber of Armoury, art admirers the frescoes in the chapel painted by the Tyrolean Michael Pacher (abt 1435-1498), and romantics the appealing medieval atmosphere.
Dino Land Klausberg
Who says that history has to be boring?

Granted, when it comes to dinosaurs, it rarely gets boring, but nothing compares to the Dinoland Klausberg: Some of the popular prehistoric giants accompany you in life size on your drive through the Dinoland Klausberg. Caution: The tyrannosaurus rex is already waiting. Get your cable car ticket Klausberg and travel back in time. Triceratops, stegosaurus and co. are awaiting the guests.
Copper-Mine Museum of Prettau/Predoi
For more than 500 years the area was a hub of copper mining. Today the mining museum in Prettau is one of the valley's main attractions and gives a fascinating insight into life working underground many centuries ago. The journey down into the mine on the original miners' railway is an experience in itself.
Adventure trail Klausberg
The adventure trail starts directly at the mountain station of the Klausberg cable car. The adventure begins at the “Goat phone” station: whisper your secret message in the goat’s ear – who can hear it? Find it out! Continue to the “Animal banks”: here you can have a short rest before testing your balance skills at the stations “Cow ringing” and “Feeding crib”. The “Goat tree” is the last obstacle before you reach the finish line on the “Cow slide”.

In Ahrntal valley to be child-oriented is fundamental.In every village you can find at least one playground. Here children of each age class can find the right game. Running, climbing, building sandcastles are only some examples of what they can do. The playgrounds are equipped with climbing frames and slides.
