Why not spend your public holiday at one of Austria's Kinderhotels?

Austria's Kinderhotels offer the highest standard of accommodation, facilities and staff. Equipped with fully-trained, English-speaking nannies, they provide complimentary childcare for up to 60 hours a week. In fact, everything at Kinderhotels has been designed with the whole family in mind and is guaranteed to take the stress out of your holiday, with all-inclusive rates, baby and toddler equipment free of charge, no hidden extras, and treats for adults too! Because the hotels are independently owned, they are not all the same. Some are luxury hotels with spas, pools and tennis courts. Others are simple alpine farmsteads. But all share the same philosophy: Children are not just tolerated, but treasured.
