Kids should enjoy nature to the fullest: running free in the meadows, discovering the forests, dipping their feet into the stream and feeling free!

We want to offer you as much nature and as little of the daily routine as possible in the Sternchen Kids-Club.

Everything for kids

Petting zoo

Kids can pet, look after and feed the ponies, dwarf goats, rabbits and guinea pigs in the petting zoo. It’s also possible to rent a pony for a trek or help Grandpa Toni to clean out the stables.

Adventure playground

All these things can be found directly outside the hotel: tree houses, high seat with eagle’s nest, sandpit, football field, table tennis, basketball and much more.

(High rope) Nature playground

NEW! The nature playground in the larch meadow is a paradise for the big kids: Flying Fox zip line, balancing platform, group swing, campfire, archery and much more.


The large playroom is a constant meeting place for the kids. The little ones love the quiet corner and the big ones can let off steam in the climbing corner.
