Climbing, letting off steam, playing, laughing, being creative, listening to an exciting story – everything is possible on your family holiday! The playroom at Sonne Bezau makes all children’s eyes light up. There is even a climbing window to quickly get in and out of the garden. You don’t need diversions through the entire hotel to escape outside whenever you want.

Childcare with lots of exercise and adventures outdoors

Familotel Sonne Bezau stands for sustainability and closeness to nature. That’s why your loved ones will spend a lot of time active and outside in Bregenzerwald’s magnificent nature with the childcare programme.

  • Children’s jogging
  • Fitness trail in the forest
  • Children’s running courses during special running weeks


In the low season also childcare for toddlers from the age of 18 months is offered during special toddler weeks. The qualified childcare staff attentively look after your little ones and always come up with great activities, such as swinging and jumping on the playground, fun games in the exercise room and much more.

And while your loved ones spend a few happy hours in childcare, you can indulge in the various sports activities in the vicinity of the family hotel or simply relax and recharge your batteries in the hotel’s own wellness area.

Leisure activities around the hotel

You certainly won’t get bored at Familotel Sonne Bezau. Your hosts will personally and passionately do everything they can to offer you a family holiday that would inspire themselves: active, close to nature, carefree.

Once a week there is a joint family hike as part of the family programme.

On a herb hike with the whole family you can find out many interesting facts about Bregenzerwald’s natural treasures or even watch cheese being made on an alpine farm. But first, the Bezau cable car takes everyone up the mountain. All the children’s eyes will light up as they ride along, while you enjoy the fantastic view.

Running, sport, exercise for the whole family

Running training for parents

The hosts, who are keen runners and trained running coaches, are particularly happy to share their passion for running with their guests, both adults and children. The focus is however not on performance but on enjoying exercise, the desire to try out new things and to discover the most beautiful corners of Bezau while running. Anyone who enjoys exercise is invited, parents as well as older children. Running experience is not a requirement!

The weekly sports programme includes easy-going running sessions, interval training, trail running, as well as “legs, tums and bums” workouts and “the 5 Tibetan Rites” exercises.

The experienced hosts are of course very happy to chat with you professionally about running, be it on the topic of training plans, nutrition, running style or the right running shoes.

Exercise camp for children

Day trip tips in the region

It is not very far from the Sonne Bezau family hotel to the many leisure attractions that await you around Bezau. Here are a few tips:

Tip 1: Water high ropes course in Bersbuch

Vorarlberg’s largest high ropes course above water is idyllically nestled in the Bregenzerache gorge. Climbing is possible from the age of 10. There are stations for the very brave, but also easier climbing routes for beginners and anyone who would like to give it a try.

Tip 2: Forest ropes course and flying fox in Damüls

The Damüls forest ropes course offers climbing fun for the whole family. Even 6-year-olds up to grandma & grandpa can tackle all the challenges with the greatest fun. And finally, a very special highlight awaits you – the flying fox takes you over a 40-metre-deep gorge!

Tip 3: Ride with the Wälderbähnle railway

A leisurely ride on the “Wälderbähnle” museum train is a must on any family holiday. The 100-year-old and lovingly restored nostalgic railway train travels between Bezau and Bersbuch-Andelsbuch in summer and lets you experience the beautiful Bregenzerwald scenery from a different perspective. The rides on the historic steam train are particularly popular with families.


Due to the proximity to the neighbouring countries of Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, many other excursion destinations are easy to reach in no time at all.

More excursion tips and current event programmes are of course available from the hotel reception at Familotel Sonne Bezau.
