Activities for Children

Our approach to making the Tuxerhof as child friendly as possible ensures we create a perfect environment for you to relax and enjoy a traditional and unforgettable family holiday. We have put together our top activities for children of all ages to enjoy.

  • Glacier flea safari

    Heroes of the glacier, watch out! Around the hiking area Sommerberg you will find an exciting adventure parkour with tricky puzzle questions. Together with glacier flea Luis, small detectives go on an exciting treasure hunt, exploring interactive stations and learning interesting facts about the glacier in a playful way. The treasure map is available at the cash desks of the valley station in Hintertux. Join us and help us solve the mystery. Ready, set, go!

  • Nature worlds

    Experience nature with all your senses! The nature trail invites visitors to marvel, discover and understand. Mother Nature has created an extraordinary and unique habitat for all of us.

  • Animal worlds

    Explore the unique and fascinating world of the animals. There is much to discover at various stations, explaining the interaction of organisms. What is crawling there? Appearances are deceptive!? How many ants can you find in the animal treasure hunt? These and many other questions are answered in a playful way.

  • Water worlds

    Immerse yourself into the fascinating world of water where visitors experience the fascinating and unique world of the water. Even from a distance you can see the “floating water-tap”, which is also the start and end point of the hike.


Discovery Trail Tuxbach

Leading along the Tuxbach stream, the valley hiking trail between Tux-Vorderlanersbach and Hinterux offers fun, sports and adventures in nature!

Key data: Start in Tux-Vorderlanersbach – hiking trail no. 10, from Madseit no. 12 – Hintertux, walking time: approx. 2.5 h, easy hike.


Yoga for children in the Himmelreich

We explore yoga in a playful way. The natural feeling for one’s own body and breathing are perceived more consciously. Yoga strengthens the self-confidence – even for our little yogis who very often have hectic kindergarten and school days!


Geocaching im Zillertal

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt played with smartphones and GPS devices. It’s a fun outdoor activity for the whole family to engage in. Other players publish GPS coordinates on a website together with descriptions and photos which you download to your own device. While some treasures are stored directly at the given position, others can be located after solving puzzles or other tasks.
