Admittedly, we’re a long way from being mountain goats, even if our bunch of little rascals’ new favourite playgrounds have been up at around 2000 metres since last summer. And if that sounds like extreme play, well it is! “Sun Park” and “Adventure Park” are the magic words that have our otherwise unruly kids’ feet in their mountain boots as quick as a flash.
Of course what we mean are the two play parks at the Gitschberg and Jochtal mountain stations... a “not exactly secret” insider’s tip from the Alpenhof! After a gondola ride that “makes my tummy tingle”, as Ivy is always happy to tell anyone who will listen, it's just an easy walk to the individual play attractions: various climbing frames, look-out towers, fountains, animal figures - and, last but not least, resting spots for us parents.
Whilst the little ones let off steam up here on the mountain, we can enjoy the incredible panorama and magnificent air.
