Childrens World - Alpinolino - Discover the mountain
The little “Smart Alec“ at the Alpinolino Park welcomes kids when they get off the cable and guides them through the exciting Alpine scenery around the Choralpe, hidden are many a tricky puzzle. The motto: play, research and discover, a number of stations are positioned along an approx. 1.5 km circuit path. Children can test their senses of smell and taste, observe the marmots, measure their furthest jump or time a sprint. Experience all that and much more with your eyes, ears, nose and hands e.g. the biotope, rope bridge, tree house, adventure playground, bio bouncy castle etc.
Choralpe - one of the best vantage points in the Kitzbühel Alps.
When the children are having a good time so are the parents !!!!
