Great hotel for families with children. Briefly and scarcely: • very good toys for children, large kletterburg and bouncy castle indoor. Spacious outdoor playground. Also in the swimming area it is missing at nothing. Pleasant temperate pool both indoor and outdoor area, jacuzzi 36 °, kiddies pool, and a large slide. The sauna area with 5 saunas and steam baths gets full marks. • the food: breakfast was top, also for lunch several menus to the selection, in the evenings very professional as well as the changing kids buffet. In the afternoon of 14 to 17 p. m. cake, sandwiches ..., soup and many others • child care: very extensive, nice staff • room: we had the family room, large. And that was it also. Convenient with kindernebenzimmer. Small drawback, the room was like a 'long hose' and therefore rather dark. The style of the decor is 90er years old but very clean. The family rooms are (unfortunately) at the other end of the hotel, so that you for every way to the room 5-10 minutes walk calculate had. conclusion: great hotel for families with children, without significant shortcomings, we were as experienced familienhotelbesucher pleasantly surprised and would definitely come back! read hotel review

After we had to easter 2012 and the brilliant summer 2013 with you sojourn could, we have this year the winter at the Achensee experienced. Felicitas (8) you can get from exciting adventures on boards reports. Ski instructors july and his colleagues have a good talent for children. Friendships were on the mountain closed. The procedure the children is perfectly organized. We parents chose paths on shanks's pony. The area at any time of the year its charm.
