During summer, the Tyrolean holiday region, Alpbachtal Seenland, becomes an adventure land for the whole family. Various amazing hikes in the Kitzbühel Alps and the Rofan Mountains guarantee plenty of new experiences and a whole lot of fun, while some fresh milk and delicious “Kaiserschmarrn” are not to be missed when you enter one of the thirty huts along the way. Hiking through one of three gorges in the region is an incredible experience with deep canyons and wild waters abound. And after each hike, jump into one of the several lakes that await you, or - if you’re a true wild child - dip your toes in the rapid waters of the Brandenberger Ache.
Beautiful hike through the forest. Follow the road in the district "Mehrn", until the end of the road, to the gravel parking lot at the shooting range. Now follow the signs through the forest. A nice, shady path leads briskly up to the forest road, continue straight ahead, a short distance slightly downhill, then over a small stream the last 100m to Hechahof. There, the visitors can expect an excellent snack (bacon stew). The children can enjoy small animals and a playground. Return over the same route.
Rarely does one see a place that, whether in sunshine or in rain and fog, sparks magic. However, the natural monument Berglsteiner See is such a place. The lake can be easily reached in 30 minutes on the broad forest road from the Reintalersee parking lot east.More information: alpbachtal.at/de/sommer/badeseen-und-schwimmbaeder/berglsteinersee

The Kundler Gorge is a popular destination for young and old. Nature is unique, enjoyment is provided in the form of a traditional inn on the way and a special highlight awaits you at the very end of the gorge.From the parking lot, a wide hiking trail leads you into the gorge. He is guarded by bizarre and powerful rocks. From start to finish it's relatively flat, which is why you can easily master the tour with a stroller.Because it is a little paradise for children that extends here in front of you. The wide creek bed is full of different stones that you can even grind in the stone turning shop at the entrance to the gorge and take home as a souvenir. At the end of the approximately three kilometer long gorge, the absolute highlight: the slow train travels through the gorge in regular sections and is happy to take tired hikers back to the starting point.You can find all information about the gorge here: alpbachtal.at/de/sommer/wandern/naturerlebnisklammen/kundler-klamm. And a first foretaste of the water-rich experience can be found here:
Juppi - that's the name of the mascot of the Alpbachtal family summer and the best friend of all children. A forest was therefore named after him high up on the Reither Kogel. And not just any one, but a very magical one.That's right - this two-kilometer circular hiking trail will enchant you and your family. Once you have floated up with the Reitherkogelbahn, the path is so well developed that it can also be used with a stroller. And the journey of discovery can begin.A giant trampoline, a giant frame and a giant slide await you right at the mountain station, and an exciting station on every corner. Petting zoo, wobbly bridge and Co. offer a nice change from hiking. And before you can fly back down into the valley tired but happy at the end of the round, a funny souvenir picture with Juppi will be taken on the photo board.More information about the magic forest: alpbachtal.at/de/sommer/familienurlaub-tirol/juppi-zauberwald. And how fabulous the Juppi Magic Forest really is, you can see here:
A great family hike with a summit victory awaits you around the Wiedersbergerhorn. Most of the vertical meters are covered by a 6-person gondola. An experience in itself to float over the wonderful landscape. Once at the top, hikers of all ages can start directly with the ascent to the summit.The Wiedersbergerhorn is so popular among families because it can be reached relatively quickly from the mountain station. And of course because the view up there is terrific. You can see three well-known Tyrolean valleys: the Zillertal, the Inntal and the Alpbachtal. After the entry in the summit book, which should never be missing, things go downhill.You hike a nice stretch along the panoramic path, until you finally stand in front of the highlight that the kids can hardly wait for since the start of the tour: the Lauserland. Right at the mountain station, the little adventurers can let off steam in the giant adventure playground until they too finally get tired. Just don't forget to get on the gondola in good time, it doesn't run all day after all. Alternatively, you can hike to the middle station and past the idyllic snow-making pond and fly back into the valley from there.You can find all information about the travel times of the gondola here: alpbachtal.at/de/sommer/sommerbergbahnen/wiedersbergerhornbahn.
Enthusiastic hiking families will find what they are looking for on this multi-day tour. Starting from the heart of Alpbach, you cover a total of 19.5 kilometers and a few meters in altitude - piece by piece. Numbers that you can proudly look back on after each stage over an evening hot chocolate in the overnight accommodation. But don't let that put you off! If the tour is split over three days, as recommended, every family can do it by themselves!Here you can see the entire tour in one piece, but we have also divided the hike into individual stages: komoot.de/collection/1145986/-3-tages-familientour-wandern-im-alpbachtalLet's go in the middle of Alpbach. From here you master most of the vertical meters on the first day. You will hardly get any of that with the wonderful nature that awaits you around Thierberghöfe, Hösljoch and Co. You check-in in the evening at the Holzalm, where you of course also deserve something delicious to eat.The next day you have the choice: Either you extend your five-kilometer stage by a summit victory, or you march directly to the Pinzgerhof, stage destination number two. If you decide on the first variant, you climb from the Holzalm to the panoramic Gratlspitz. A detour that is especially worthwhile as a sunrise tour.On the third day, the last stage is on. Well rested and strengthened from breakfast, all hikers set off towards Finale: Via the Oberen Höhenweg it’s back to Alpbach.
