Holidays with children in Tyrol
Free children’s programme
Children and family holidays at Hotel Venetblick in Jerzens: A dream come true – kids will find the nicest play areas directly on Hotel Venetblick’s doorstep: Petting zoo, outdoor playground, kids farm, fairytale world, treasure hunts and rafting await you! Drawing, painting, playing, making friends, discovering secrets...
Carers with educational backgrounds look after children at ‘PITZI’S KIDS CLUB’ for a few hours with numerous activities. The club is free for guests with the Pitztal Leisure Pass. This year’s TVB summer programme once again promises lots of excitement and great attractions.
Free children’s programme
Pitztal Leisure Pass holders can take part in Pitzi’s weekly programme for free. Additional activities (lift passes, tennis courts, etc.) are not included in the leisure pass or leisure pass environment ticket.
Programme for minis
Children aged 4 to 6
Creative programme in Pitzi’s craft workshop:
Here it is mainly natural materials and alternative materials that are used, such as old toilet paper rolls, yoghurt pots, stones and roots, making things such as rattles, lighthouses, sticking stones together and painting or making funny sculptures from roots.
Pitzi’s artist’s studio:
Today we will be painting... This programme uses different coloured paints and techniques. Creations include plaster figures and paintings and even collages made with prepared templates. The hand painted cloth bags were very popular last year.
Making Native American jewellery (day programme):
Today we will be Native Americans... Mornings are spent making Native American jewellery (headdress, necklaces and bracelets) and a Native American festival is held in the afternoon.
Little forest detectives on the trail. Using our keen eyes... On this day (half-day) we spend time in the forest with magnifying glasses and beakers and become more familiar with nature. We observe animals and flowers and plants are classified. We also use this part of the programme to look for materials that can be used the next afternoon for craftwork.
We are looking for little builders... Let’s pack up and go to the stream. We will build a dam there together. Little rafts slide down the stream and everything is tested for its swimming qualities. (Not for kids afraid of water!)
Who knows their way around a treasure map? To begin with the kids are read a story and then given clues to the whereabouts of the treasure map. Once the maps has been found, we can get started with the treasure hunt.
Adventure programme with Pitzi’s mini Olympics:
Today we are holding a relay. Two teams compete against one another. It all comes down to speed and skill. Fishing contests, ‘Brettkellnern’, obstacle courses, can knock-down.. splashing around at the open-air pool: Here we experience all possibilities provided by the pool, e.g. water bomb contest: we throw water bombs at a target and whoever has the most points wins.
These are just a few examples from Pitzi’s mini programme. There are additional parts of the programme that are suitable for older kids, such as hikes, adventures in the rope park, etc.
The adventure programme for maxis
Aged 7 to 14
The same applies to both minis and maxis in relation to creativity, nature and adventure. The only difference is that the programme items are coordinated according to age. For example, the following activities can only be done by the older kids:
We take the Hochzeiger gondola and chairlift to the Sechszeiger and from there we walk together to Pitzi-Fels, from which we abseil.
A unique experience for kids! A rope is mounted above the lake, which the kids then ‘fly’ over with the aid of a harness and pulley. Only possible in good weather.
Climbing on Pitzi’s climbing wall:
Afternoons are spent climbing the wall behind the Pitzi Kids Club in Liss.
Adventure hike through the forest:
Kids playfully get a better understanding of nature with a hike through the forest. They will not go short on adventure as there is plenty to discover and lots of fun.
Rafting for kids
Rafting has been a fixed element of the Pitzi’s Kids Club programme for a long time.
This is definitely a highlight for big and small.
