Almfamilyhotel Scherer Childcare and activities
There is still no pleasure like anticipation. This particularly applies in beautiful Obertilliach in Austria. Here, the Almfamilyhotel Scherer is opening its doors in time for the turn of the year – giving you and your nearest and dearest every reason to be excited now. Awaiting you at an altitude of 1,450 metres is not just an original alpine idyll far away from urban noise, but also everything that makes a family holiday with bag & baggage nicer, including action and proper leisure fun…
Even though James Bond has long since gone back home to Hollywood after his film-shooting in beautiful Obertilliach, a whole lot of action awaits your kids and teens at the Almfamilyhotel Scherer. Your host family, the Scherers, know exactly what young guests want:
- Children's playground: Only just the greatest thing for your littlest ones - the outdoor play area at the Almfamilyhotel Scherer is indeed really big. Here, with slides, swings, trampolines, go-kart riding, climbing and hide and seek on an area of more than 2,500m2, it's "goodbye boredom"! It goes without saying that cars have no place in this traffic-restricted zone. At the Almfamilyhotel Scherer, the safety of the littlest guests always has priority…
- Kids' play rooms: If the weather is gloomy, that is no reason at all for gloomy thoughts in the Lesachtal. Because then the play fun simply continues inside at the Almfamilyhotel Scherer. Here, all good things come in threes! Not just because there are actually 3 play rooms – but because these suit the individual needs of the different age groups. For instance, a seesaw, Bobbycars and an arts and crafts corner ensure chuckling laughter among your littlest ones, while your teens can spend time just with each other. And they can test their strengths in table tennis, table football, billiards and on the Playstation – or simply chill out for a while with their new friends.
- Petting zoo: Particularly for city children, the first contact with real animals is unforgettable. And the animal inhabitants of the Almfamilyhotel Scherer look forward to many lit-up children's eyes – and one or two petting sessions. By the way, those who want to can actively help out as the rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep, mountain goats & co. are looked after and fed every day. A truly beastly delight…
- Nature experience: On a family holiday at the Almfamilyhotel Scherer, being outdoors is in particularly high demand. And not without reason. There is a whole lot to discover in the idyllic landscape of Obertilliach. For example on the nearby nature trail – or on exciting hikes through the mysterious enchanted forest. And who knows, maybe your littlest ones will meet Raspberry Golli – the hotel's lovable mascot! So there is a whole lot on offer.
The good news for you: While your children romp around to their heart's content, you can do something with other parents – or enjoy the time along together as a couple, completely unburdened. With the qualified child supervision service of the Almfamilyhotel Scherer, freedom is ensured from Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm as well as between 6pm and 8pm. Thus, the family holiday together is really fun for everyone!
Whether cycling or mountaineering, hiking or walking, paragliding or pony riding, skiing or snowshoe hiking – the Almfamilyhotel Scherer is the perfect starting point for sporting activities with the whole family.

The hiking region of the Dolomites impresses not just thanks to its picturesque beauty – it also offers you and your nearest and dearest a true eldorado for family hikes together. And discovering, exploring and experiencing the idyllic alpine countryside makes exercising in the healthy mountain air twice as enjoyable. You are best to ask about the nicest routes and hiking paths in Alta Pusteria as soon as you arrive at the Almfamilyhotel Scherer.
With the first snowfall, the Obertilliach region transforms into one of Europe's most beautiful ski resorts. Now you can enjoy skiing on the region's many slopes and cross-country, on which snow is guaranteed! And should it be the first time for you and your nearest and dearest on two boards, that is no problem either. Because beginners are just as welcome as advanced skiers at the Obertilliach Ski School, just a few steps away from the Almfamilyhotel Scherer.
