There is a variety-packed area for children to enjoy activities, ranging from the 'Holiday Olympiad', to a hike by torchlight. And parents can either spend a relaxing time with the kids or make the most of the benefits of our first-rate child supervision offer, and get cozy in the wellness area. One way or another, a family holiday in our children-oriented hotel will be a deluxe stay for big and small.

Feeling great is child's play

Older children and teenagers can get bored quite quickly. But not in the hotel Der Bär. While Mum and Dad relax in the pool, our children's entertainers provide so much fun. The wonderful pastures, fields and woodlands in the area around the family hotel Der Bär tempt children out to enjoy forays in the natural surroundings. For instance there is the 'Holiday Olympiad' - we play fun games outdoors or head out on a trip to the farm, where children get to bake their own bread. On nice days a picnic in an Alpine pasture or a ride in a horse-drawn carriage makes happy faces. Should the weather not play along, the children can enjoy doing crafts, the mini disco or a film night.

Your holidays in winter become a highlight for the whole family too in hotel Der Bär. The skiing school Ellmau Hartkaiser and the TOP skiing school Ellmau make your skiing holidays the perfect Tyrolean winter experience and offer children plenty of fun, such as magic carpets and children's slope to learn skiing playfully.

From May to November Ellmi's World of Magic invites you to enjoy adventure-packed excursions into the mountains in Ellmau. On fun adventure paths children get to learn interesting things about the region and experience one adventure or another.

The “Hexenwasser” in the neighbor village Söll is known as a place for explorers, dream dancers, the curious and all those who have not yet forgotten how to be amazed. Here is nature with its small and large wonders in the foreground. Various stations, paths and chambers of curiosities can be explored partly on your own and partly under supervision. From the barefoot path through the stream and meadows, the singing bowls under the witches’ umbrellas and the witch’s ladder to the sundial hike on the Hohe Salve mountain.
