Just a stone's throw from the Germany border lies the Tannheimer Tal Valley, a family-friendly region with lots of great highlights for children – from adventure trails with challenges to solve to outdoor activities with professional childcare.
Visitors travelling to the Tannheimer Tal Valley from Germany really couldn't have it any easier. This pretty region in the north-west of Tirol is just over the border, meaning guests can travel here quickly from Bavaria without having to worry about motorway toll stickers, winding mountain roads or long traffic jams. Among the most popular family activities here are the climbing area in Nesselwängle and the Wasserwelt Haldensee open-air pool with its 50-metre slide. Active families will enjoy the many themed walking trails such as the Smugglers' Trail in Schattwald, where children are invited to follow in the footsteps of smugglers and customs officers and solve a series of challenges. Another popular place to visit on hot days is the Vilsalpsee lake, where families can walk around the shore before jumping in to cool off. The "Tanni-Kinderclub" offers professional childcare during the week, while teenagers can look forward to a wide range of activities such as rock climbing, mountain biking and canyoning.
