Adventures for children – relaxation for their parents: The green heart of Austria offers leisure activities for the whole family. In summer, the beautiful lakes invite you to go swimming. On a hike, parents can enjoy the breathtaking views of Styria's mountain world while kids get to romp around on alpine meadows or play near babbling mountain streams. In winter, families spend time together going skiing, cross-country skiing or tobogganing ...
And in case it rains, there's plenty to do indoors: from delicious tastings at the Zotter chocolate factory to sliding and bathing at the H2O thermal spa in Bad Waltersdorf or at one of the other 8 thermal spas in Styria. Tours of exploration at Lurgrotte Peggau, Austria's largest water-bearing stalactite cave, a visit to the Lipizzan stud farm in Piber or a visit to Herberstein Animal World are particularly impressive as well. At the latter, the animals often spend the winter in their homes and can thus be admired at close quarters.
Whether you head to the alpine pastures and huts with a rucksack on your back or to the lakes and open-air swimming pools with a beach bag in your hand: The list of excursion destinations for sunny days in Styria is long and diverse.
Take a leisurely ride up the mountain on one of the 17 summer mountain railways. From aboard the cable car or on the lift, excursionists enjoy stunning scenic views of impressive mountains such as the Dachstein, Grimming, Zirbitzkogel, or Hochschwab.
Skiing, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, snowshoeing, and more: As soon as the green heart of Austria shows itself in its white Sunday best, countless winter family adventures await.
When it rains, storms or snows, there are lots of leisure activities you can do indoors. How about a visit to a museum, thermal spa or one of the many other excursion destinations for families?
