Families

Fun with the children

Calling all kids: what do you say to animal antics, underground thrills and downhill rides? Fun, games and adventure for the whole family. Guaranteed to keep you amused.


Children make the Villach Region much more colourful. Just as well! That is why we pay particular attention to our youngest visitors’ needs. To make sure all the little pirates and princesses feel at home here, there’s a huge choice of exciting things to see and do with the family on holiday. We know families don’t want to get bored.


Here are a few highlights for family holidays in the heart of Carinthia:


Monkey mountain in Landskron. Just like on television. With 152 Japanese macaques roaming around freely. And they can even swim and dive.
