Family holiday in winter

The winter sports region of Murau-Kreischberg stands out for its wide variety of offers and services for the whole family, no matter what age your children are. Modern artificial snow machines mean that the Kreischberg ski resort is always supplied with plenty of snow, if Old Mother Frost (or Frau Holle, as they say in German) should ever take a day off. The many blue slopes are designed specifically for beginners, but are also ideal for younger children.


Family ski mountain Kreischberg

The on-site ski school has been awarded a quality seal for ski schools in Styria. The practice lift and Dinopark will thrill tots in particular. Plus, Yabba Dabba Doo Land and the Sunshine Lifts give children the chance to learn how to ski in a fun and play-based way. The baby lift and mini bump course make those first swoops a little easier. In addition, the three tubing runs at the mountain station will delight visitors of all ages. Non-winter sportspeople can hop on the gondola lift for a convenient ride up to the heights and then enjoy this extraordinary kind of fun. The Snowpark is the ideal venue for snowboarders and freestylers. Plus, there are many attractions for advanced skiers as well as beginners. A great little bargain is available to families in off-peak seasons: children up to 15 go free when at least one adult has paid for a ski pass (valid from one 2-day ski pass).

 

Experience Murau with the family in winter

Wind your way through the old town of Murau and indulge in some culinary treats at the guesthouses and restaurants! Haven't been to the movies for a while? We recommend a visit to the cinema in Murau. Water babies will love the indoor pool in Murau or the Aqualux Therme in Fohnsdorf.

 

Families ‒ Adventures away from the slopes

Of course, there are a few things on offer away from the slopes too. The natural snow paradise of the Frauenalpe is just waiting to be discovered by the whole family. Try a snowshoe hike together; there are day hikes or even full moon hikes available – sure to be a wonderful shared experience. The climbing centre sets you a different kind of physical challenge: there are a total of 35 routes to tackle. For beginners (any age), routes of between 0 and 13 m have been set up. Or, why not fulfil your dream of flying: it is possible to go tandem paragliding all year round in the Murau-Kreischberg region.

 

Family holiday during the Advent period

Take the whole family to experience the sparkling atmosphere of Christmas in the Murau-Kreischberg region. Visit the beautifully decorated old town of Murau and be inspired by the stalls at the Christmas market. No doubt you will come across one or two little Christmas presents for your loved ones...
