Summer at the Hochalmblick
DISCOVER. EXPLORE. PLAY.
Children are particularly important to us. With us you get a lot of freedom and space to play and explore the area. You can get to know the animals and take responsibility for the work in the barn by giving them their own chicken to fetch eggs during the holiday season. EVERY CHILD HIS OWN CHICKEN.
Our agriculture covers 15 hectares of land and 40 hectares of forest. We take care of around 15 cows, 10 young cattle and calves. You can experience life on a farm authentically while feeding, cleaning the animals or harvesting hay.
Many questions are answered after the holiday and the children know about tools, animals and food. Children make a lot of friendships with us, with other children and with animals, because in addition to the farm animals there is also a petting zoo with pony Lucy, little Lena, rabbits and guinea pigs.
You can ride the ponies as often as you want. There is also a secured playground with a sandpit, climbing tower and slide, as well as a playhouse. You can let off steam on the swing or the trampoline, or compete in table tennis, table football or bobby car races. After playing, you can take a fun tractor ride in the area or swim in our swimming pool.
We also like to go on family hikes to the Alm.
AIR. SUN. PANORAMA.
This is the ideal vacation spot for families who want to be active in the great outdoors. Every season has its charms. Spring is wonderful for mountain biking, excursions or long walks in the blossoming nature. In summer, the mountains and the lake offer everything for your wellbeing. After a mountain tour or an adventure hike, Lake Millstatt with its velvety water invites you to relax your muscles. You can also spend the day archery, horse riding, cycling or an excursion to the alpine pastures. The medieval artist town of Gmünd invites you to stroll and rummage in handicraft shops.
In autumn you can only go to the alpine pastures. The panoramic view and temperatures of around 20 degrees make hiking in the Nock Mountains a wonderful experience. Then you go to the sauna and after dinner you can experience the sunset with a view of the Hochalm on the terrace.
Winter has a lot to offer. We live in one of the most beautiful family ski areas in Austria. 70 km of perfectly groomed slopes in all levels of difficulty up to 2000 m above sea level, 16 modern lifts, friendly ski instructors and cozy ski huts await you on the Katschberg. In addition to the snow-covered ski slopes, there are also trails for cross-country skiers, toboggan runs by day and night for the whole family, and beautiful routes for ski boot hikers. You don't need to organize anything. We take care of the lift ticket, ski course and will be happy to explain the ski area to you. We are also happy to accompany you skiing for a few hours. We will take you to the lift with our own ski bus. After the sauna and dinner, we like to end the evening in a cozy atmosphere.
