23/05/2013 / Ischgl, Galtür, Kappl, See


Summer time is family time – a time to be amazed, to run around, for investigating and also for just being at ease and taking stock – from this summer there is a new programme of events for children and teenagers in Paznaun, which will take place in a different town each day. The four towns of Galtür, Kappl, See and Ischgl make Paznaun a variety-filled paradise for families. Thanks to the Silvretta Card All Inclusive, taking part in the programme of events won’t cost you a penny

This summer Paznaun will be transformed to become a hot-spot for families. Paznaun-Ischgl’s tourist board has developed a new concept - between 24th June until 6th September the programme of events for children and teenagers will for the first time offer activities in a different town in the 30 kilometre long valley every day – alternating between Kappl, See, Ischgl and Galtür. For children and teenagers this means exciting variety; a new adventure every day and new discoveries in the middle of the Alps. While climbing in Silvapark Galtür, rock-climbing acrobats get to experience a new bodily sensation and will balance themselves as they learn to keep one another safe and to rely on one another. Klara, the herbal sorceress in Kappl and Willi, the mischievous forest imp in See, let you in on secrets about the plant and animal kingdom. During mountain bike tours teenagers get to enjoy fast-paced riding through Ischgl’s mountains. The special aspect to the family concept - the programme of events takes place for the most part in the middle of the mountains; there are only a few in the valley. Children between the ages of 4 and 10 can head out on an exploratory tour with Kids Club Paznaun; while action for older kids, between the ages of eleven and 16 is on offer in Youth Club Paznaun. Register right at the location. And the best thing – taking part is free of charge when you have the Silvretta Card All Inclusive. All guests staying the night receive this regional discount card even before they get here.

Refreshingly interesting outdoor offers in Kids Club Paznaun
Jump to it; get involved; run around; be amazed - in Kids Club Paznaun new discoveries and fun with kids of the same age is to the forefront. Parents can also take part in all aspects of the programme of events. Thanks to the many meadows, pastures and pools exciting times observing animals lie in store everywhere. Those who want to can forge even closer ties by going on a horse-riding course; while Austria’s first children’s outdoor bouldering area in Galtür hones your skill, courage and those muscles. Klara, the herbal sorceress provides interesting information about the plant kingdom in the sorcery school in Kappl. Little ones get to investigate the animal kingdom in See with Willi, the mischievous forest imp. Head through the mountains on horseback - on Haflingers - with Siggi’s Alpine Club. While climbing in Silvapark Galtür it is not just strength, but also endurance and courage which are the order of the day for little rock climbing acrobats. Thanks to professionally trained supervisors, in the Kids Club children can reach those lofty heights safely. We only head down the mountains for a bit of a change, to enjoy a dip - perfect fun playtime in the summer is on offer in the play, sports and water park in See, right in the heart of the town. The large park, naturally set in the landscape has a large swimming lake and a separate pool area for children to splash around in. The playground, which has a slide, beach volleyball pitch, football pitch and tennis court, provides some sporting entertainment. Families will also find refreshment in the adventure pool in Galtür which has a specific mother and baby area complete with play rhino and water hedgehog, while for older children there is a waterfall and a slide.

Action-packed Youth Club Paznaun
The programme of events for teenagers in Youth Club Paznaun is both exciting and variety-packed. Every day there is something on offer at a different location – for instance, there are organised and supervised canyoning or rafting sessions and bouldering, mountain biking, downhilling or paragliding.  A parent-free zone prevails throughout the entire programme of events on offer at the Youth Club, which also includes water fun and ‘Chill and Grill’ at Lake Pardatscher, GPS treasure hunt in Silva park and a beach volleyball session.

Programme of evening events for parents and children
Families are already occupied during the day, so an entertaining programme of evening events provides even more wonderful variety – for instance there is a hike by lantern light through Galtür on Monday and in See on Tuesday. On Wednesday everyone meets up at Musikanten Huangart in Kappl. Parents enjoy a social get-together, and making crafts with their children and telling mysterious stories. On Fridays the farmers market provides temptation from 6 p.m., including tasty foods, music groups, with make-up and airbrushing for children.

Silvretta Card All Inclusive for families
The Silvretta Card All Inclusive rounds off the new family concept in Paznaun. Every guest who stays the night receives this discount card; it is even sent to their home before they come away on holiday. Thanks to the services included, this means that families already save on toll fees if they are travelling via the famed Silvretta high alpine road. Having arrived in Paznaun, with the All Inclusive Card families get to take part in the programme of events for children and young people free of charge; extra costs only have to be paid for entry fees and for any hire equipment. Participation in the sports, cultural and weekly programme of events is also included. This includes, among others, a glacier safari, a family climbing session and a smugglers and summit tour up to 3000 metres altitude. Here too trained staff supervise your children and also take them on lots of voyages of discovery. ‘All in’ also applies to use of all cable-cars, chairlifts and buses in the towns of Ischgl, Galtür, Kappl and See.
