Family holidays in Südtirol
The Plose is the ideal hiking area for families with children. It takes only a few minutes to reach the mountain with the gondola lift.
Children’s excitement goes up already on the gondola lift itself. Once you have reached the 2050 meter of height, you have many different opportunities. You can either stay in the surroundings, let your children play in the playground and enjoy a cold drink on the sun terrace or you start right away for your tour or for your ride down with one of the mountaincarts.
Do not forget, BrixenCard holders may ride the gondola lift for free once a day.
Family hikes – Fun for Kids
WoodyWalk is the best round hiking tour for families. Nan, granddad and mum with Kevin in the children’s push chair, daddy with little Mary on his shoulders, everyone will enjoy himself. This path, adequate for small children, doesn’t only offer amazing views, but also has many attractions on its way as a giant sledge, millwheels, wooden telefones, a tree to clime on, Kneipp ponds and many others. WoodyWalk offers variety and entertainment for everybody.
Who is up to it takes their own lunch and stops for a picnic on the meadow. Of course there is always the possibility to have a nice snack at the Mountain Inn Rossalm, and, while mum and dad relax on the terrace, the small ones can enjoy themselves at the playground or on the Vikings’ ship.
There are other hikes that adapt very well to families. Please check our proposals ! You can also try out Geocaching, the treasure hunting game, that takes you along a trail where small caches are hidden.
Dash down the 9 km into the valley with this mountain go-karts. If you want to experience something really special and exciting, then you have to come to the Plose and try out the fantastic mountaincarts.

Watch out for the days when the mountaincarts are at disposal.
