The Ghost Train, a tractor-pulled train, conveniently takes you part of the way from the mountain station of lift to the center of the Geisterberg Adventure World. Brand new this year and one-of-a-kind in the Salzburg region is Drachis Via Ferrata for kids, teens & beginners. Securely connected to a steel cable and together with their parents, kids can climb the 40-meter-high Dragon Wall on the Geisterberg. The necessary climbing equipment can be rented from the sports shop at the valley station of the lift.

Wagrainis Grafenberg

The Grafenbergbahn lift takes you directly from Wagrain up to the Wagrainis Grafenberg Mountain and Nature Adventure World. The park impresses with countless oversized adventure play stations which have made it one of the most popular family excursion destinations in the Salzburg region. Once you have arrived up top, a giant inflatable bouncy cushion awaits you as right at the exit of the mountain station. Take the raft across the Grafenbergsee lake or the suspension bridge to the Bienenweg trail, then continue down the Hachau slide into the low rope garden. Skill and coordination are required on a variety of courses that will challenge your rope swinging and balancing skills. And just because they are low to the ground in no way means that they are going to be easy! Then, it will be off to the swings forest, with its the giant swing and many more. Next stop – the climbing arena. Here routes with different difficulty levels - identified by the color of the hand grips - can be climbed on the boulder wall. Finally, stroll along the “Path of Fascination” which takes you past the water games park and back to the children’s mountain pasture farm. On the KUHbidu adventure path, you will find a variety of stations where you can discover interesting facts about cows.

Family Highlights in Flachau

Flachau, well known as a Mecca for winter sports, is also worth a visit in the summer months. Especially for families with children, this wonderful excursion destination in the Salzburg region has a lot to offer.

You can take the two summer chairlifts Starjet 1 and Starjet 2 right from the center of town to reach the heights of Griessenkar mountain.

The Starjet 1 mountian station is also the starting point for the stroller-friendly Floris Erlebnispfad adventure path.
