Mountain huts playgrounds
Young guests will be spoilt for choice with things to do in the Achensee holiday region. A diverse range of children’s playgrounds – small and large, located directly at the lake or near mountain huts and inns – will keep children of all ages entertained.
One of these mountain huts is the Gramaialm in the Karwendel valleys in Pertisau. Located seven kilometres from Pertisau at the end of the Falzturntal valley, the Gramaialm can be reached by car, bicycle or by foot. Children can let off some steam and have lots of fun on the adventure playground with trampoline, slide, swing and other modern and safe play equipment. Another highlight is the petting zoo with goats, pot-bellied pigs, ducks and dwarf rabbits. Petting and feeding is of course allowed. The terrace of the Gramaialm is right next to the alpine garden, so the children are always within eyesight.
The Gernalm in the Nature Park Karwendel is another popular family excursion. From Pertisau, the mountain hut can be reached within two hours’ walk or by car or bicycle via the toll road. The main attraction for young guests is the adventure playground “Gimp’l Park” with climbing frame, zipline, water play area, sand pit, slackline, swings and a slide for small children. There is also a game enclosure nearby where deer and roe deer can be watched up close. Cows, calves and hares are also at home at the mountain hut and look forward to a visit.
On the Alpine Animal Circular Walk children can watch native animals such as hares or chamois, and if you are quiet and look closely you can even discover roe deer. Several adventure stations are distributed along the trail where the kids learn interesting facts about the region in a playful way. In addition, the experience is accompanied by a funny dwarf story. The entire circular walk takes about 1.5 hours and is suitable for all family members.
The Gaisalm which is only accessible by foot or by ship enjoys an idyllic setting at the lake between Pertisau and Achenkirch. Children can let off some steam on the playground or on the large meadow while the parents soak in the view of the lake. The boat trip to the mountain hut is a memorable experience for children as well.
There are also many more playgrounds in the region! You can find an overview here.
