Marlstein in the Tyrol’s Ötztal valley is a family idyll with thousands of activities to make your holiday yours. Don’t just take it from us, experience it for yourself! There are meadows and alpine pastures for children to romp through, a play area with all kinds of adventures and we have our own petting zoo with cute animals like ponies, miniature goats, rabbits, ducks, Oessant dwarf sheep and our lovely miniature donkey, Emil. You can also join us on excursions, relax around the camp fire, play games, go canoeing, rafting and much, much more.... And enjoy the ‘farm’ experience!
There are tonnes of activities here in Marlstein. For the those who like to run around all day. For those who think that heaven on earth is riding a pony. And of course, for parents or guardians with a passion for nature, the mountains and rural settings. Hike up to breath-taking view points and as far as your feet can carry you. Go tobogganing, skiing, cross-country skiing and snow-shoe hiking until your legs turn to jelly. Discover culture and history, experience real adventures, conquer the longest roller coaster in the Alps or simply relax all day in Austria’s most extraordinary thermal spa, the Aquadome. Take a look below at what Marlstein has to offer in summer and winter.
Children's programme at Marlstein
There’s also a wide range of activities available for families during the holidays. In summer, there’s a day on the farm every week for children (from mucking out to feeding!), free entry to the forest swimming pool in Haiming, pony rides and much more. When it comes to winter, children can play on the winter play area and enjoy special ski courses aimed at children (with free lift pass on certain dates). And of course, we also have children’s beds, baby listening devices etc. It’s no wonder that up here on this remote mountain, away from the hustle and bustle lies a true hidden paradise for children!
