Summer Vacation in the Zillertal
The enchanting Spruce Tree Castle sits enthroned high above Zell am Ziller and will whisk you and your children away on a magical journey into the realm of fantasy. The 5,000 m² area can be comfortably reached on the Rosenalm lift. Four magnificent towers rise up into the sky and set the stage for many exciting adventures. In the fresh mountain air, your little ones can explore a treetop trail, adventure playground, and water play area.
In the summer months, the Rosenalm reservoir transforms into a ruggedly romantic spruce lake, where floating docks, a boat rental, pixy cove (shallow area) for the little ones, dam crest path, and floating island promise thrilling experiences in the middle of the Zillertal Alps. The idyllic path from the lake to the Spruce Tree Castle and back to the summit station is accessible by children's stroller.
On the Arena Coaster, you can race down an entire length of 1,450 m down into the valley. The fun begins at the valley station of the Rosenalm lift. Up to 9 meters above the ground, the anchored toboggan run leads over waves, steep curves, as well as a 360° and 540° loop and is the most adventurous alpine coaster in the Zillertal.
The recreational park, which was completely redesigned in summer 2018, can be reached on foot in only a few minutes and attracts visitors with its thrilling action, sports, and recreational offer. Awaiting you are indoor and outdoor tennis courts, an outdoor pool, an indoor bowling lane, a beach volleyball court, adventure mini golf, a bouldering tower, a slackline park, as well as a soccer pitch and fun court. With the motto "the treasures of the Zillertal", the giant adventure playground with its highlight "gold digger playground" is perfect for tinkering and building.
