An easy-going ambience, with a full gamut of offers
After all, in the autumn in Der Unterschwarzachhof you get to experience the whole gamut of offers, with the region and its unique natural surroundings revealing itself in shimmering colours, and showing off its tranquil and pleasing aspects. The ideal time to experience the mountains in the soft autumn sunshine that beams down from the blue sky - whether it is hiking or mountain biking, or just enjoying yourself on the terrace.
Alpine adventures in autumn
And when you then head to the Alpine pasture together to milk the cows, make butter and sample cheese or for an Alpine breakfast on the farm, children’s eyes beam with joy and this makes adults’ hearts skip a beat. Unforgettable holiday moments together with the family that will stay with you for a long time to come.
Mini farm & fantastic programme
At the mini farm kids are among themselves and enjoy their own realm. Sometimes they bake and cook together with a child supervisor and afterwards what they make is devoured with gusto. At the petting zoo the cuddly inhabitants are delighted to be petted - and children are especially impressed by the animal sponsorships, since they then get to take care of their ‘very own animal’ while they are on holiday. During the autumn holidays kids and teens get to know like-minded friends during the kids and teenagers programme of events and have a great time. They explore the natural surroundings together, forge friendships and have fun.
Kids Club & programme for teenagers
And for the kids - whether they are infants, at primary school or teenagers - there is a wide range of activities available in the 4* Superior family hotel. In autumn the Kids Club provides child supervision every day - from 10:00 to 22:00. Nobody will get bored here - whatever the weather. Indoors crafts and games are enjoyed and the ball pool provides a space to let off steam - while outdoors a genuine paradise awaits children. There is a playground with climbing equipment, slides, trampoline and water play area.
Sunrise on the summit
It’s worth getting up early - even in the autumn holidays. After all, anyone who has ever been on a sunrise hike, won’t forget it in a hurry. And since we all now that the sun rises later in the autumn than it does in the summer, you don’t have to get out from under the duvet so early to experience this natural spectacle. Find out more here about a sunrise hike in Saalbach Hinterglemm - an experience that doesn’t just inspire adults.
It is not just in the hotel - but also in the surrounding area that a variety-packed holiday awaits families with teenagers, and there is something in store for everyone in the family; whether sporty and active, relaxing or exciting. What’s it to be today - chilling by the pool in the hotel, or would you prefer to explore the mountains? Whatever the weather - both in the hotel and in the region itself, there is so much to experience. Here are a few tips in the surrounding area:
- Mountain bike tour into the surrounding mountain realm (e.g. To the Reiterkogel or to the head of the valley). Bikes are available to hire right in the hotel
- for adrenaline junkies a day in Bikepark Leogang
- High ropes course at the head of the valley
- Saalfelden climbing hall (when the weather doesn’t play along)
- Rafting tour on the Salzach or the Saalach
And while the littlest ones are well looked after in the Kids Club in our 4 star Superior family hotel (daily & all day long), the older kids and their new friends can tend to their sponsored animals at the riding stables or in the mini farm, and the teens can explore the Glemm Mountains on a guided mountain bike tour, adults can relax during massages and treatments in Alpen Spa on the area spanning 1500 m² or during a sauna session and in the pool after an action-packed day outdoors. After all, when you the children are well taken care of, you can lie back, relax and enjoy time for yourself, or time together as a couple - far removed from the stresses of the daily grind. Those who prefer to keep an eye on their children can relax in the spacious garden facilities in the wonderful relaxation loungers, or observe all the hustle and bustle from the cosy terrace.
