There is always something going on when on holiday with children in Saalbach: These summer highlights are an absolute must also, but not just, for families

  • Erlebnisbad Käpt’n Hook water park: Cooling-off on hot days is a must. With a water area of 1,000 m² and a big pirate ship, there is never a dull moment for children at the public pool in Saalbach but there are also quiet moments of enjoyment for adults too.

  • Märchenwald (“Fairytale Forest”): A hike through this forest (which is illuminated in the evening) featuring figures and depictions of well-known fairy tales will not just bring a happy smile to children’s faces in both summer and winter.   
  • Go-kart track: If you are 140 cm or taller, you can race around the 370-metre long asphalt track. 6.5 hp karts, with a top speed of 55 kph, invite you to take part in spectacular races.
