A family excursion to Wurbauerkogel

Spending time with your loved ones on Adventure Mountain

Finally, it’s time for your long-awaited excursion with the whole family. Forget school, forget work, and forget all everyday stresses – instead, it’s all about spending time with your loved ones on one of Upper Austria’s most adventurous mountains: Wurbauerkogel. And “time” is the magic word. Time for yourself, for your kids and for your partner. Time to say “goodbye” to your daily chores, and time for enjoying fresh mountain air and the beautiful scenery of the Pyhrn-Priel region. Now, all that matters is having fun at the numerous family attractions in Windischgarsten. What could be better than discovering things as a family and going on adventures together? 

Family time on Wurbauerkogel Adventure Mountain

Quality time for parents and their kids

Ready, steady, go: Who’s pedalling the fastest at the Bikepark? Who’s the first to get to the mountain restaurant after a beautiful hike? Who’s laughing the hardest on the Alpine Coaster? And if you’ve got the best aim and know how to handle bow and arrow – then the 3D archery course is perfect for you! A speedy descent on the wild rides and joyous thrills at the Bannholzmauer Mountain Climbing Park, or an exciting tower quiz for inquisitive explorers at the Panorama Tower: Boredom? Not here! On Wurbauerkogel Adventure Mountain, every family member finds something to their taste …

Especially on the extensive hiking trail network or on the many bike trails, Mum, Dad and their little whirlwinds can give it their all and prove what they’re capable of. By the way, you can rent suitable bikes right on site at the Pyhrn-Priel Bikecenter. From time to time, it’s well worth slowing down though. Because otherwise you might miss out on the stunning scenery and breathtaking views of Windischgarsten’s valley. 

What’s more, you’ll get discounted tickets to many attractions with the Pyhrn-Priel Cards – for an unforgettable mountain summer. The chairlift comfortably takes you up to higher altitudes and let’s you start your adventures on Wurbauerkogel from there. 

Non-stop moments of fun and adventure

More attractions on Adventure Mountain

The brief ride on the chairlift from the valley station up to the mountain station of Adventure Mountain is a highlight in itself. And we’re not even talking about all the exciting adventures that are waiting for families after they arrive at the top … Don’t miss out on highlights like a scenic-view platform with a view of more than 21 two-thousand-metre summits, and the 3D archery course  – alongside many other attractions! 

A special kind of adventure awaits visitors on the 3D archery course – with hidden 3D animal mockups like deer, bears or rabbits. And since going on a hunt can leave you ravenously hungry, you might want to stop by at the mountain restaurant or the rustic tavern.
