Summer with the family in St. Oswald in Carinthia
For leisure-time parents and full-time children
Be in the middle of it all instead of just on the side-lines at the Kirchleitn chalet village. In the middle of nature, surrounded by mountain hiking trails and bike routes along fish-filled lakes. In the middle of a family paradise with plenty of adventures for guests young and old. So, get ready to learn about everything that awaits you on your summer holiday in your lodge in Austria!
â€śWe might just have to stay a while longer...â€ť is something we often hear in Kirchleitn â€“ because the time you spend here is simply too short to experience all the adventures that are in store for you and your family. You will have your work cut out for you if you want to reach mountain summits, take piggy-back or pram-friendly panorama hikes and cool your tired feet in a mountain lake at 2,000 metres in altitude. We are certified experts in subjects such as laughing in alpine pastures, whispering in the woods, giggling by babbling streams or grinning from ear to ear in the mountains.
The beautiful lakes in Carinthia, with their incredibly clean water and lots of fun things to do, are just waiting for your visit. Explore the water by kayak, ride the waves on a surfboard, learn to sail or simply enjoy the feeling of the sand between your toes. In bad weather, you can also choose from two thermal baths â€“ the Kathrein family thermal baths with their 80-metre-long slide and the RĂ¶merbad with wild river and huge selection of saunas for adults.
Bike trips with baby trailers on the HĂ¶hengrat or sunrise hikes starting at 3:40 am are part of our bread and butter, as are more than 100 excursions included with the KĂ¤rnten Card â€“ from the wildlife park to the world of legends to caves where you can dig for garnets!
Thatâ€™s even without mentioning that a relaxing day at the villageâ€™s pond with plenty of fun things to do is very much a part of a family holiday. Basket swings, a water playground, slides, small farm with petting zoo, our football pitch and campfire are just some of the highlights for your little ones. Parents can relax in a lounge chair or hammock while you wait for your kids to thank you for choosing Kirchleitn as your holiday destination.
We have tailored our kidsâ€™ programme perfectly to your young adventurers â€“ kidsâ€™ needs change depending on their age. So leave babies under the age of 1 with the Kirchleitn babysitters. Specially trained child-minders are available three half-days a week for 1-to-3-year-olds. Our kidsâ€™ programme is available five days a week and features fun and adventure with new friends. Get up close with the forest and streams, branches and roots, stones and timber... donâ€™t just get close to nature, be a part of it! Teens love our slackline, football tournaments on our own football pitch, creek walking and trail running.
Our one-of-a-kind survival training is distinguished in Europe. In the Kirchleitn Nock Mountain Ranger programme for kids aged 8 and older, a biosphere park ranger will teach kids about nature, but youngsters will really learn a lot about themselves. Cross streams, go tracking, set up camp for the night, build a bonfire with wooden bows, eat wild plants, milk cows, spend the night in the hay barn on an alpine farm, try GPS tracking, work a water mill or meet fish breeding experts â€“ adrenaline rushes are included! Donâ€™t forget your equipment: hiking gear, sturdy shoes, moderate physical fitness, pocket knife and torch... just in case. Your kids wonâ€™t be the same after this fun adventure â€“ it is guaranteed to be an unforgettable memory in your lodge holidays in Austria!
