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. The wide trail is suitable for pushchairs and leads past bizarre and mighty rocks. The creek bed is full of rocks and especially popular with children for play. On strong rainy days and from mid-November to late March, the gorge is closed for safety reasons.

Juppi is the mascot of the Alpbachtaler family summer and is very popular with children. With him, they experience great adventures, such as in the magic forest on the Reitherkogel. Directly at the mountain station of the Reitherkogelbahn begins a two-kilometer circular walk through Juppis Zauberwald, which is also easy to walk with a stroller. At the various game stations, there is plenty of variety from hiking: The petting zoo is home to sheep, goats and chickens. On the giant trampoline you can let off steam and work out the balance on the Wackelsteg and in the Vogelnest swing. After the ghost moors, the stilt forest and the giant slide, there is the opportunity to shoot a fun memorial with Juppi on the photo board with the entire family. The real donkey Juppi, as well as monkeys, small animals and many play stations will then be waiting for the visitors in the nearby children's park Reith im Alpbachtal.More information about the magic forest: alpbachtal.at/de/sommer/familienurlaub-tirol/juppi-zauberwald
After the comfortable mountain ride on the Wiedersbergerhornbahn, the hike first leads to the summit. Back at the mountain station, an adventure playground awaits the kids with numerous play stations in the forest and on the alpine meadows. The gondola runs in the summer from the beginning of June to the end of October.
