Kids' programme

in Reit im Winkl

Varied, exciting activities for the kids are the main ingredient for a family holiday that's fun for everyone, parents and children.

Playing and romping in nature, having adventures in the forest, climbing mountains, riding a pony, abseiling, finding treasures - these are just a few ways to spend your holidays in Reit im Winkl.

Children between 3 and 8 years of age spend a day with the "forest snails", Waldschnecken, without their parents. From the “snail shell” they set off towards the forest and river and discover the secrets of nature.

The older children, between 8 and 18 years of age, go white water rafting on the Tiroler Ache or experience a nature adventure with abseiling, GPS rally or river crossing.
