Cosy and Diverse

The day you arrive in St. Johann in Salzburg, you might take a stroll through town: You discover a cute café, sit down and enjoy a coffee and pastry while lazily watching people.

The next day is completely different: You hike through lush Alpine landscapes, set against a backdrop of rugged mountains, arrive at a mountain lake so clear you can see the ground. You dip your feet in the water and hear nothing but the wind.

And the day after that, something completely new awaits you yet again. It might be a day full of laughter with your family, or a visit to the world’s largest ice cave, or a stroll through a moss-covered gorge. One thing is for sure: The day you leave, you're already thinking about coming back.

Ben and Michal’s Family Itinerary

Summer in St.Johann © josalzburg.com / Mirja Geh Summer in St.Johann © josalzburg.com / Mirja Geh

Alpendorf Adventure Playground (00:22) & Kinderland Shop (00:29)

Just outside their hotel, the Hotel AlpenSchlössl, Ben and Michal’s children discovered their first holiday highlight: the Alpendorf Adventure Playground. It’s not quite your ordinary playground – among other things, it includes a mini race track with electronic carts, a pool with so-called “disco boats”, and a climbing wall.

The family followed this up by a shopping trip to the Kinderland shop in St. Johann town centre – basically another playground filled with the most exciting toys.

Your entire body is tensing up. You pull the arrow as far back as you can, even a little farther, you concentrate on the target. Then you let go – bull’s eye! If you have always wanted to handle a bow and arrow, here’s your chance – visit Alpendorf Archery with its sweeping archery park.

Ghost Mountain (00:45)

Ghost Mountain leisure park with its four adventure worlds will captivate children’s imagination immediately: Ben and Michal’s children went looking for the resident ghosts at the playgrounds. The family then relaxed by the beautiful lake on the mountaintop while taking in the views.
