ALLES ALM – the perfect place for families, fun & nature

Our mountain world is packed full of natural sights and hiking experiences. A special gem is ALLES ALM – a family adventure hiking trail, where children and adults can playfully learn about nature and life on the alpine pasture.  

This probably sounds familiar: you wake up in the morning, the birds are singing merrily, and the first rays of sun are fighting through the curtains into your bedroom. And the best thing is: it’s Sunday! The thought pops into your head, that today would be the ideal day to undertake a short hike with your family. Everyone’s excited about my suggestion and our little one straightaway says: “Mummy, please let’s visit Flecki.“ I have to confess, I have to think for a moment – oh yes, Flecki – the cow at ALLES ALM on the Gnadenalm. Our son remembers exactly the fun hike we did there last year.

After breakfast we get ready – out of our pyjamas – into our hiking gear & the cute little cuddly toy Flecki tucked under his arm. Tobias has never been so quick at getting dressed 😊 Just a 10-minute drive from Radstadt and we’re there. In front of us a fabulous alpine landscape, no noise and not a cloud in the sky. Let’s go!

Before I give you a short insight into the various play stations, let me start by saying: you’re looking forward to a day spending time with your family and hope to give your children a great day out. At first the children are rearing to go and run on ahead. After a while, however, you soon hear: “Mummy, when do we get to the hut?“ or “Mummy, I’ve had enough”, let’s be honest – you’ve probably heard that too.

Here it’s another story altogether. Every time we drive up here, my son gets so excited – there’s no moaning and he wanders happily from one theme station to the next, where we learn true stories, oddities and interesting facts about life on the alpine pasture, nature and the many animals.  But sure –the most important thing for him is, that he can romp around the stations, whereby short stops are not to be missed. Here’s a short insight into the stations:

Marmot’s den, cow fleck jumping course & co

Bored children? Not here! Children can romp around here to their heart’s content, balance on the giant rake and scythe and crawl into the marmot’s den to visit the marmot family.

Along the cow fleck jumping course they can put their dexterity to the test: there are two routes – along either the dark or light cow fleck spots. On your marks, get set, go… both players jump along their spots to reach the finish. Whoever rings the cowbell at the finishing line first, is the winner. Don’t miss out on a rematch.

Before heading back to the starting point of the trail, a great alpine water playground awaits the children. That really gets them going, as they become “Kings of the Water”. The children can pump water at the start into a trough and using slats, conduct the water into the various wooden channels. At the end everything flows back onto the ground and you can play a family game, whose stone splashes the highest when thrown in and splash around for ever.

The Johannes Waterfall – a peep behind the curtain
Those who haven’t had enough, can head on to the Johannes Waterfalll. The water gushes down into the depths from a height of over 60 m. This impressive natural spectacle is particularly fascinating, as a trail leads behind the waterfall – those who dare, can walk behind the waterfall curtain and shoot sensational photos.

Themed resting places & alpine delicacies

Between the pushchair-friendly hiking stages you can relax at cosy themed resting places, enjoy the fabulous view and recharge your batteries for the next adventure.

Rustic alpine huts along the family trail beckon you to stop for refreshments. The dairywomen serve up hearty snack platters with home-made butter, cheese and tasty farmer’s bread.

So, if you’re looking for something to see and do with your family the next weekend the weather’s fine: head for ALLES ALM & say hi to Flecki from us!

I was born, grew up and live in Radstadt – that’s says everything – I love my home! In the morning when I look out of my bedroom window, I see the medieval town wall of our historic town & and our home mountain, the Rossbrand. With a lot of imagination even the peak cross at almost 1.800 m. When I’m getting the breakfast ready, I have an unhindered view of the ski slopes and the golf course in Radstadt. What could be better? Whether spring, summer, autumn or winter – at the end of each season I’m looking forward to the next. Through my son I’ve really learned to appreciate the treasures which nature and the mountain world around us have to offer. We spend as much time as possible outdoors.
