Slip into your hiking boots, put on your rucksack and place your binoculars round your neck. Then head off on a walk which is sure to amaze hikers of any age.
Across the meadows
Start your hiking tour with your children from the centre of Soelden and follow the comfortable footpaths up to the Leiterbergalm. The child-friendly route then runs along an Alpine trail to the Edelweisshuette. From here, it continues up to the mountain pastures. After a two hour walk, you will reach Hochsoelden at 2.000 m above sea level where you can take a break at the Sonnblick ski hut in the Oetztal.
You can also walk to the Sonnblick from the Giggijoch mountain station or from the middle station of the Gaislachkogelbahn cable car via the Gampe Thaya hut. The Sonnblick can also be accessed by car in summer.
A hearty snack is a must
A visit to the Sonnblick is the highlight of your family hiking tour . Here, the Riml family will take care of all culinary delights. Fancy bread and ham to recharge your batteries? Or Alpine cheese with bread? The Tyrolean dishes are prepared with passion and based on a special recipe for a culinary experience at the heart of the Alpine meadows. While you enjoy a cup of coffee, your children can let off steam in the play area or stroke the animals at the hut's own small petting zoo.
Your little hikers will fall into bed happy but exhausted at the end of the day! Can hardly wait to explore the magnificent mountain summits with your loved ones? From the Riml hotels in the Oetztal Valley, you can set off on your dreamy hiking tour to the Sonnblick Alpine restaurant in Hochsoelden or to one of the many other highlights in the area.
