With the help of cool mountain go-carts, you will get to zoom from the summit of the Hochwurzen back down to the valley - enormous fun for the whole family.

Afterwards, we recommend paying a visit to the Waldhäuslalm in Rohrmoos-Untertal. Awaiting you there is a play paradise for children and a traditional, cozy country inn for delicious refreshments.

This small alpine tarn in the middle of the idyllic mountain world of the Schladminger-Tauern is a true natural jewel and beautiful hiking destination for families. Setting out from the Eschachalm in Rohrmoos-Obertal, you can follow either a forestry lane or a challenging forest trail, bringing you in around 1.5 hours to the picturesque Duisitzkarsee. Here, a beautiful loop will take you around the lake, while several huts invite you to stop in for a bite to eat and something to drink. If you wish, you can continue your hike out to the Neualm or the Eschachalm (total hiking time around 4.5 hours), or simply return the same way you originally came.
