Family holiday at the Hochkönig

Colourful holiday adventures for young and old

We love families and families love us! There are many reasons for this: for example, our hotel is right in the heart of the Natrun playground - the children can roam at will until they fall contentedly into bed in the evening. In addition, the entrance to countless colourful mountain adventures is close by: the mountain railroad. All in all, our region holds attractions for lively as well as relaxed families with an adventure mountain, a summer toboggan run and many other unforgettable activities. At any time of the year! 


In summer, families go high up and also love racing down again. Do your children always need a good adrenaline rush during the holiday in the mountains? Then you have come to the right place: 

Natrun adventure mountain

Adventure for the whole family

The Natrun cable car takes you up to the adventure mountain of the same name, and what awaits you up here would not fit into any children's book, no matter how imaginative: forest ropes course, forest slide park, archery course and co. provide the necessary action, while you enjoy nature on hiking trails suitable for prams and idyllic recreation areas - for example at Prinzensee. The way down is adventurous again: via the flow trail.

Biberg summer toboggan run

Fun family action

This one and a half kilometres shout "family fun" like no other attraction. The lift takes you up the mountain and then rapidly back down into the valley: Activate the gear lever and off you go! 345 vertical metres, 61 curves and three super jumps make the descent with this summer toboggan run unforgettable. Absolute fun for young and old.

An absolute must-visit when you travel with the kids towards Hochkönig: Toni's Almspielplatz. High up on the Karbachalm, which you reach by gondola flight, a wide variety of play stations await little adventurers here. From the climbing tower to the water games - and down it goes on request with fun mountain carts!

In Mühlbach at Arthurhaus, some special residents are looking forward to being visited by families: goats, alpacas, marmots and co. are at home in the village of animals. And when you visit them, you can go for a cuddle with some of them in the petting zoo. But that's not all - many more exciting experiences await you up here, such as a wide variety of themed trails, an open barn door day and more.

Hochkönig Card

Discounts & Included services

It is the key to all adventures - including those for families. The Hochkönig Card not only allows free use of summer cable cars and hiking buses, but also many other inclusive services, which are more than worthwhile, especially for a vacation with the family. 

Further information


In winter, our heart clearly beats for the mountains and winter sports. The nice thing for families: to reach the local ski area, you don't have to get on a ski bus, you can just start right outside the front door. That's because the valley station of the Natrunbahn is right across from the hotel. Of course, there are also a few offers that make especially children's eyes shine... 

Funslopes & Snowpark

Each ski day an adventure

Skiing is usually fun for the whole family, but for the little ones there may be some action in between. Beginners can practice their first stunts in the Natrun beginners' park, while the Kingspark already offers bigger obstacles. The Funslope Schönanger also offers fun for more moderate adrenaline junkies with jumps, curves, Rainbow Butterbox, tunnels and other surprises.

Ski school

For beginners, pros, connoisseurs and co.

"Early practice" is also the motto in skiing and for kids and adults alike, it can be helpful to get some support when getting started on the boards. At Maria Alm, we have two professionals who will help you with your first attempts: the Ski School Maria Alm and the Ski School Edelweiß.

Simmerl lift exercise meadow

Gathering first experiences on the slopes

And once they are made, the first swings, you don't always want to go out into the big, wide world right away. Sometimes you prefer to find your way slowly into skiing, undisturbed and among like-minded people. The Simmerl-Lift practice meadow is the perfect place for it and reached from our hotel in no time.
