Family trip to the Magdalensberg!

The Magdalensberg can be hiked as well as up by car. Once at the top, a paradise for families awaits you. Beautifully laid out at the top of the Magdalensberg sits the Gipfelhaus. Here, several generations ensure the well-being of the guests. There is delicious gardening cuisine. Some of the herbs and salads come from their own vegetable garden. Particularly recommended are the Kärtner Kasnudel in a wide variety of variants, all of which are handmade. Inside it is quaint and outside, in addition to the magnificent panoramic view, you can expect an offer for children that makes the eyes shine. The large playground is directly adjacent to a wild enclosure, where you can feed deer and deer. In addition, there is also a bumper car for car enthusiasts. If the weather is bad, there is a separate playroom for children inside in the basement! Everything is really thought of here!

Family hike in the Tscheppa gorge for adventure-hungry!

If you are looking for a hike with a certain thrill, the Tscheppaschlucht is the right place. The huge gorge offers an incredibly beautiful natural spectacle. The hike through the gorge goes well over an hour with children. Most of the time, the path leads along a narrow path. Thus, it is best if the children can either hike safely or otherwise enjoy the view from the stretcher. As a reward for the adventure, you come across a small petting zoo at the end of the hike. It belongs to the Gasthof “Deutscher Peter”, which invites you to take a break. The special thing: he has been family-run for centuries. Families appreciate the playground right on the terrace. There is good classic Carinthian cuisine and the best Kärtner farm ice cream. Everyone will find their strength again!

Family outing in Rosegg Zoo!

The Tierpark Rosegg is a great destination for the whole family from spring to autumn. Several animals may be fed by the children. Through well-known animals such as rabbits, chickens and ducks, there are also llamas to discover unusual species of sheep and kangaroos. The playground with an extra climbing frame for small children and a cable car, which especially older children enjoy, thus covers many age groups. Snacks and drinks can be purchased in the kiosk right at the playground. But the actual highlight is the ascent to the mountain, where Rosegg Castle used to stand. There are all sorts of things to discover here and except for some, the animals walk around freely.

Small hikes with a child in Klagenfurt!

Even very close to Klagenfurt, you can start hiking right away. The Kreuzbergl extends further than you initially think and has various well-signposted routes. Once you have mastered the small hill to the Kreuzbergl, you then walk almost only in the plain, which makes it very pleasant, especially with smaller children. The playground with large playground, Trimm-Dich-Park, large meadow and a small pond is a must if you are traveling with a child on the Kreuzbergl. If you are looking for an opportunity for a little refreshment, the forester offers himself. They are very child-friendly there and have a lot of toys and play opportunities for children, even if you can see that he has existed for many years.

In the footsteps of the composer Gustav Mahler!

If you are traveling on Lake Wörthersee, there is the composer’s house of the well-known composer Gustav Mahler not far from Klagenfurt in Maiernigg. Up there is a short hike, which can be mastered very well with children. It goes past a small ruin, which is great for climbing. A small river has to be crossed and the climb is very manageable, so that it is easy to master even with smaller children. Once at the composer’s house, there is a great view through the forest of the lake. The small seating areas invite you to take a break.
