Tip for families: The KITIWAPF Summer Festival in Eben im Pongau

A clear blue sky and sunshine as far as the eye can see: “I must make the most of it!“, I think and at the weekend I grabbed my younger brother and drove with him to Eben to the new KITIWAPF  (children’s animal hiking trail). As he’s already a “small“ big fan of the Geisterberg in St. Johann, I’m sure he’ll love the animal track stamp trail.

A trail for small explorers and big adventurers  

Arriving in Eben, we’re able to choose from two trails of varying levels of difficulty. We go for the easier (and pushchair-friendly) “Explorers‘ Trail”, as Lukas, at the tender age of four, is still relatively small. The “Adventurers‘ Trail“ is more suited to bigger and keener walkers.

The journey is the reward – on the way up to the Moosalm

Passing various forest animals we head up to Moosalm. We can pick up the stamp booklets plus the KITIWAPF adventure quiz at either starting point. After collecting all the stamps a little surprise awaits us (or rather Lukas) later on.

Fun Fact: On the way up, we got (according to Lukas) a lovely view of the “sea“. I then had to explain to him that it was actually the Bathing Lake in Eben. 😉

And hey presto: nine animal stations and around an hour later, we arrive at the Moosalm and Christian, the hut owner, presented Lukas the KITIWAPF Finisher medal as a reward for his enthusiastic hiking and stamping. Hooray!

That screams summer: KITIWAPF Summer Festival

Christian tells us that on Sunday, 14th of July 2020 from 11.00 the KITIWAPF Summe Festival – a playful family hiking day to be rounded off at the Moosalm – take place.

In addition to a barbecue buffet, face painting for children, a programme of events by the Eben Fire Brigade, and lots of other fun play stations the highlight for the children is when Punch & Judy pay a visit at 2.00 pm on the dot.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Lukas is certainly looking forward to it, how about you? 😉

Born and bred in Salzburg, mountains, traditional customs, culinary specialities have accompanied me my whole life. The older I get and the more cultures and landscapes of other countries I get to know, the more I realise, how beautiful it really is here. That's why I particularly enjoy sharing these special characteristics of my home with you in the blogHuette.
