Alpendorf (Austria)

Unforgettable Activity Holiday in 4-Star Superior Kinderhotel in Picturesque Austrian Alpine Village

We’re delighted to be staying at the 4-star superior Kinderhotel Alpina once again, one of our range of family-friendly hotels in the spectacular Austrian Alps! Our 4-star superior hotel is at the heart of the village of Alpendorf, surrounded by beautiful gardens and countryside. It offers amazing facilities, including a newly built rooftop infinity pool with a panoramic view of the mountains, indoor pool with waterfall and whirlpool, and a separate kids’ pool with large slide, an impressive spa area with a range of saunas, fitness centre, indoor tennis courts and much more. All the rooms are furnished in Austrian style, and come with an ensuite bathroom with bathrobes and hairdryer, satellite TV, telephone, safe and minibar.

For children aged 3 and above, the hotel has a kids club. This is open every day for up to 12 hours and features supervised childcare and an exciting kids’ programme for all ages. For our very youngest guests, aged between 4 weeks and 3 years there’s also a crèche. Teenagers’ needs are also catered for with a games room with table tennis and pool tables, computer games and table football. The hotel organises kiddie discos and movie evenings for the little ones, as well as fitness classes and guided hikes for all hotel guests. There’s an impressive adventure playground directly next door to the hotel, featuring a bouncy castle, crazy golf, go-karting, disco boats and a range of other attractions.

As if all this were not enough, we will be offering a 6-day activity programme exclusively for our single parent families. The programme will include a hike through a wild water gorge, a day at the nearby swimming lake, and a trip up the legendary Ghost Mountain, with adventure playground, rafting, high rope garden and much more. After an active day in the mountains, our single parents can relax in the late afternoons over coffee and cake on the sun terrace, or enjoy a spa treatment while the children are entertained at the kids club.

Your SPoH host will organize and accompany our group on a fun and action-packed 6-day family activity programme exclusively for our single parent families. And you don’t have to be sporty to enjoy our activity programme. Below are just some examples of the activities planned (please note the programme has not yet been finalised):

As well as all this, of course, you can make full use of all the activities offered by our hotel, which include daily fitness classes, guided family hikes, tennis, golf at the nearby St. Johann course – or alternatively hire bikes or e-bikes at the cable car station and explore the beautiful countryside yourself.

Alpendorf is a small Alpine village in the Salzach valley, located at an altitude of 800 metres and only 60 km south of the city of Salzburg. The village is at the foot of the 1,700-metre-high Gernkogel mountain, and offers an abundance of sports facilities and activities, making it hugely popular with tourists looking for an active holiday in stunning surroundings. Alpendorf is only 3 km from the lively town and cultural and shopping centre of St. Johann, on the banks of the River Salzach.

The region is well known for its spectacular Liechtenstein wild water gorge, one of the most impressive and longest gorges in the Alps, as well as the Grossarlbach Valley and beautiful Wagrainer Valley. Alpendorf is the perfect destination for anyone looking for an active holiday in the mountains, traditional Austrian hospitality and a wide range of different outdoor activities for adults and children alike.

The region is famed for its beauty – scenes from The Sound of Music were filmed nearby – and if you and your children are looking for a quintessentially Alpine experience, combined with state-of-the-art sporting and wellness facilities, then Alpendorf is the place for you!

"My son and I had a fantastic time and it is one holiday we will truly remember. You wake up to spectacular scenery and you can continue to enjoy the views from the rooftop infinity pool. The hotel facilities are first class and the mini club caters for children of all ages. We loved all the varied activities and hikes that were on offer on this holiday to Alpendorf, which were all organised by our wonderful guide, Daniela."
- Donna & Amaar (11) (Alpendorf holiday, August 2016)

"A fantastic, action-packed week with friendly like-minded, people. An almost overwhelming choice of things to do – no two days were the same. Excellent hotel with a water slide that on its own would have kept my four-year-old happily occupied for a week. Delicious breakfasts and five course dinners every night kept us well fed for our packed agenda. A thoroughly enjoyable experience – one which I am looking forward to repeating!"
- Katrine & Marius (4) (Alpendorf holiday, August 2015)

"I could not recommend Alpendorf summer break highly enough. Myself and my 4/almost 5 year old daughter had a great week. There was plenty of company for us both – a lovely rapport within the group. Our “leader” Daniela was simply great – she facilitated everyone and ensured all went smoothly without ever dominating the group. Meals with separate adult and children tables (which evolved quite naturally!) were very welcome – it meant both children and parents had breathing space! We were blessed with weather in Aug 2012 and it will go down as my first real holiday since my daughter was born in that I was not responsible for organisation and decisions etc. A no brainer for a single parent looking for a nice break and a change of scene. Activities suitable for all ages of children – something for everyone from lake trips to paragliding and rafting for the more adventurous. Food was very good and varied. Hotel is beautiful – family feel – small. Our room had a great view and was tastefully furnished in alpine style etc. Can say no more than that!"
- Anita and Grace (4) (Alpendorf holiday, August 2012)

"We just got back from a wonderful week of activities and fun in Alpendorf. Beautiful place, great weather, wonderful hotel and the fantastic Daniela ensuring everyone has a great time, and it was simply superb. Anyone thinking about travelling there, just do it! You will not regret it. My kids and I have memories now that we will keep forever and I cant put a price on that (don’t miss the rafting day!)! Single Parents on Holiday clearly have this one nailed. Kids have unlimited fun, adults relax too and my kids are insisting that I book 2 more for next year already! – we will be going again."

"I just wanted to let you know what a brilliant time we had in Alpendorf. Everything far exceeded my expectations, hotel, food, activities, people AND we were very fortunate with the weather. Charlotte had a ball and has slept a lot since we arrived home.
"

- Hope & Charlotte (11) (Alpendorf holiday, August 2011)

"This was the first time I have gone on a group holiday of any sort and I was a little apprehensive. Also my son is 13 almost 14 and I was concerned that the other children were quite a bit younger and he might feel a bit left out. I shouldn’t have worried. I can honestly say that this was the best holiday I have ever been on. The activities were plentiful and exhilarating and the Adults and equally the children were absolutely lovely. Daniela played a large part in making us all feel comfortable and organised everything extremely efficiently."
- Maureen & Peter (13) (Alpendorf holiday, August 2011)

"We had a brilliant time in Alpendorf! My daughter absolutely loved it and didn’t want to go home. The people we met were lovely and the activities excellent, particularly the white water rafting. Daniela was a brilliant host and we would most definitely go back!"
- Andrea & Holly (10) (Alpendorf holiday, August 2011)

"This was the 1st time using “single- parent holiday”. I truly really loved it. Very well organised and loads of avtivities for the children. Safe environment and very good hotel."
- Judith & Elvie (11) (Alpendorf holiday, August 2011)
