Winter with children

Family holidays in one of Salzburg's best winter sports resorts

Winter holidays in Saalbach-Hinterglemm are great fun for all the family. The meeting point of the SkiLL ski school is opposite our hotel, with parents free to ski all day while their kids enjoy lessons and lunch with one of the friendly English speaking instructors.


However, there is much more to winter in the region than just skiing and snowboarding. Lots of alternative activities are on offer during the winter months, including swimming lessons in our pool. Tobogganing, sledging, reading in the library and special spa treatments for children are also favourites. In the evening there is no better way to spend time as a family than with a good old board game by the fire!

In the morning, children at the kids' club (English speaking nannies) can look forward to fun activities like making a snowman, singing and listening to stories. At lunch they can enjoy a healthy and hearty snack before painting their faces in the afternoon and having lots of fun without Mum and Dad. Arts & crafts are also one of the most popular activities - a great way to make a unique souvenir to take home with you from your stay in Austria!
