Please check the weather before you visit there. Can be exhausting at a foggy day. The side bars could be more sufficent.

Parco natura per bambini Katschhausen

Reviewed By Joeri W - Brussels, Belgium

Although it may it look like an ordinary play area, Katschhausen provides you so much additional funn also for the parents. Katschhausen includes a quest for children. You need to answer several (easy) questions to be able find the "bad guy". While searching for the answers kids will have fun on the playground and learn a lot about nature. Just take your time.
Don't forget to ask your free sticker book from the Katschberg tourist office or your hotel. When you completed this sticker book and found the right answer on the main question you will get a special souvenir at the Katschberg tourist office.
Katschhausen also includes a Geocache. Details can be found on geocaching.com. Actually the geocache is based on the same questions as the sticker book, but at the end you will get coordinates to find the cache, at least if you found right answers and calculate the coordinates correctly.
And when you found all answers you can come back the next days just to have fun at the playground.

Skigebiet Fanningberg

Reviewed By wrightone50 - Lower Austria, Austria

A place to just enjoy skiing, it's not an area that attractzs the speed kings who frighten the .... out of the ordinary skier. The slopes range from the easy to the quite challenging, excellently groomed, through a beautiful landscape, with a few mountain bars dotted around. Really a delightful place for a couple of days' skiing as a change (and a break) form the more popular resorts nearby.

Our son had 15 students in his no-limits ski group yesterday, the first day of the new skiing week! They promised extra teachers would be added... today (the second day), we hoped things would be solved, as the ski-teacher had promised yesterday afternoon. But... up until lunchtime, he had a group of about 20 to 25 students! Incredible!
We chose this school because of the promise that the ski classes would consist of a maximum of 8 - 10 students...
They definitely cannot handle things in high season.
Quite disappointed. It’s a lot of money for a whole week of day long ski classes...

Naturpark Riedingtal

Reviewed By pherieau - Ingolstadt, Germany

Im Riedingtal kann wunderbar von Alm zu Alm wandern. Wer nicht mehr laufen mag, steigt einfach in den Bus der stündlich fährt.
Wenn man mit dem Kleinkind nur eine kleine Runde drehen möchte, der spaziert einfach um den blau schimmernden Schlierersee. Pause und Brotzeit kann man an sehr schön gelegenen Rastplätzen machen. Dort kann man auch die süße Hubertuskirche bewundern.

Kolnbreinsperre

Reviewed By Lambers2013 - Alfreton, United Kingdom

We stayed in the area for a few days and this place was recommended to us by our hotel.
Using our Karnten Card we got free admission and then took our time taking in all the sights and the wonderful engineering of the roads, tunnels and if course the dam itself.
A truly wonderful place to visit in rain or Sunshine.

Sport 2000 Friedrich

Reviewed By MattSmyth - Birmingham

Booked ski hire from here in advance via the 'net for my family - very reasonably priced. On arrival the staff were English speaking and helpful. The equipment is good quality and it wasn't too busy. The only extra cost was insurance which I hadn't counted on but thought was necessary. My son swapped his skis for a snowboard halfway through the week with no problems. On return the staff were again friendly and efficient.

Museum Castle Moosham

Reviewed By hermann b - Salzburg, Austria

Just a honest, real old fortrage, together with the local guide, a real must.
Check out the sheep in the yard, under the old draw bridge. Once you call BURLIE, the all answer with a BAA. Could not stop doing this and some of the sheep were horse.
A real unique experiance.

Tschu Tschu Bahn

Reviewed By Canuckdaturk - Toronto, Canada

We heard about the vineyards and this tschu tschu train to get there. We waited 25 minutes (as it runs every hour), and it took us up to a cafe/vineyard that didn't have any view, and dropped us and the guy said he would pick us up in one hour. The driver can;t speak English by the way. So we decided to have some drinks and walk down. You can walk in 20 minutes. If you want to see a vineyard, walk up, but that even is not worth the effort we thought. Maybe in a beautiful summer day...
