Edelweißhütte - HISTORY TIME
A time without history is a time without stories. The opposite is true at lovely Edelweiß Mountain Hut where visitors can take part in a really incredible history lesson, displayed on old pictures. How did the locals live here in times long past? Did they have a special dialect? Of course, the Ötztal dialect has already been declared a World Cultural Heritage! And the food? As fine and authentic as always!
Gaislach Alm - ANIMAL TIME
A couple of wonderful hours for young and old in close touch with nature at Gaislach Alm Alpine Inn: in addition to special attractions like the paperfish or a trout pond there are loads of other animals in the stables and outdoor precincts. The youngest guests love pony riding or the petting zoo. Typical regional delights are on the menu – plus uninterrupted panoramic views of the Alpine scenery.
Almferienclub Silbertal - GEMSTONE TIME
An outstanding hike to Almferienclub Silbertal, a holiday village in the mountains, leads right to Tirol's biggest mineral museum where children take a quick glance at the huge number of gems and precious stones. But one thing is for sure: the giant climbing crystals of different sizes and colors, that can be found outside the museum, are far more interesting. There is a lot to discover...
Goldegg Alm - POTATO TIME
Have you ever enjoyed Tirolean-style roast potatoes? Then this is the right place to try them for the first time. They are delicious! At Goldegg Mountain Hut the host himself prepares this unrivaled specialty. And what's best, outside the kids can climb up a huge potato while swinging and rocking up and down.
Löple Alm - Music time
Alpine pasturelands and traditional Tirolean music go hand in hand, just like bacon and bread. Singing and playing music have been a tradition in the Alpine region already for many centuries – be it traditional or zappy. Next to scenic Löple Alm Mountain Hut you are invited to explore a giant contrabass in XL format. Are there any musicians as well? You never know! Music is a language that everyone can understand.
Almstube - wooden parlor time
Nothing for couch potatoes: jovial get together, excellent food, dreamlike panoramic views and Gaislachkogl state-of-the-art mountain gondola taking nature fans up to the middle station in a few minutes.

Gampe Thaya - HEARTY SNACK TIME
A deeply rooted mountain farm plus traditional music and excellent plain cooking with only the best ingredients: rustic Gampe Thaya Mountain Hut is renowned for its mouth-watering "Marende" delights, one of Tirol's most typical and genuine afternoon snacks.

Choose from a variety of freshly prepared specialties at Rotkogelhütte Mountain Hut while soaking up the sun. Take off your hiking boots and relax the sore muscles. The nearby kids' adventure station comprises a larger-than-life hiking boot! Maybe a giant has left it there? It doesn't make any difference: the youngest hikers have great fun with the new outdoor toy.
Hühnersteig'n - Water time
Play with the elements at Hühnersteig'n Mountain Inn: parents can indulge in delicious Tirolean specialties or trying the revitalizing Kneipp pools while the kids romp around with spray guns and other water toys. The whole family takes part in the shooting challenge that promises action-packed moments. Who can hit the giant target best: Mummy, Daddy, your little sister or your brother? Try it for yourself.
Waldesruh - forest time
Don't miss out on a visit to marvelous Almdorf Waldesruh, a holiday village nestling right amidst the wildly romantic forest. Listen to the cuckoo or the woodpecker living in the nearby trees. Is there someone knocking at the door? No, a couple of young bird-watchers discovered the three wooden birds imitating a woodpecker. Not bad at all. That sounds like fun!
