Family holiday in summer
Holidays with children on the Alps
During a summer holiday with your family in Damüls, Mittagspitze offers not only a marvellous location for any kind of excursions and activities in the natural environment, but also various amenities for children.
Cosy at the hotel, active in the natural environment or on a discovery tour through the region – families feel at home at Alpenhotel Mittagspitze in Damüls.
Active & outdoors
Damüls offers sportive children a great range of activities in the natural environment:
Faschina summer tubing run
On the summer toboggan run fun takes a close second behind safety that always comes first. Enjoy fun on Vorarlberg's biggest summer tubing run on the Hahnenkopf in Faschina. Children will especially love the dashing ride on the tubing run and very often passers-by will hear a jolly “again, again!” when they stop for a minute to watch.
Damüls forest rope course
Vorarlberg's biggest forest rope course offers you the opportunity to experience the forest from a whole new perspective. In addition to the brilliant views, great challenges are waiting for children and grown-ups.
Skip between the trees, master wobbly boards, overcome narrow planks and dash through the forest on the zip line … the forest rope course promises to be diverse and fun-packed, but most of all safe. Every visitor gets a tested safety equipment with climbing harness and helmet, as well as a detailed introduction by the instructor.
No matter how big the challenge is, families always experience safe adventures when they scramble through the forest: even the bravest adventurers are always secured by a carabiner on the rope. There is always an instructor on hand if you need help in case your fear of heights kicks in.

Schröcken adventure park
Even more adventures and fun are waiting in Schröcken. The course in the adventure park offers you various flying foxes and zip lines between 20 and 90 metres above the ground and wild ravines in the middle of the gorgeous Vorarlberg natural environment. Enjoy breathtaking views over the valley while you are high above the trees with a thumping heart and a racing pulse. Feel new energies in your body when you test your limits – of course always safe and with an experienced guide.
The adventure park in Schröcken offers great outdoor thrills, fun and exercise for older children and big adventurers.
Tip: sturdy trainers or trekking shoes are required. We recommend to take a light windbreaker or rain jacket with you. The park is open in light rain.

Spielfabrik Dornbirn – Play Factory
The perfect all weather programme for kids, a short hour from Damüls, but surely worth the travel: the Play Factory Dornbirn. The large indoor playground offers diverse attractions on 2,000 m2 that guarantee entertaining hours. A big climbing labyrinth, a climbing volcano as well as different slides and trampolines will satisfy your children’s urge to move. Still more action will wait on the go-kart course and with bobby cars, bikes and tractors while the softball cannons and the EyeClick game will provide for exciting matches. And a dedicated area for toddlers perfectly rounds off the playground in the Play Factory Dornbirn.
Astonishment & education
