Keeping kids happy...our speciality

Whatever the age, we’ll cater for your child’s every need

Baby Love

Childcare

Kinderhotels understand that travelling with baby can be a nightmare. When you finally arrive, most hotels only care for babies over 4 months. Check into a Kinderhotel and your baby will be lovingly cared for from the age of seven days old. Don’t forget all equipment is provided at no extra charge, so all you need to remember to pack is that big book to read by the pool. Staff are trained to the highest standards, ensuring even the most anxious parents enjoy stress-free quality time together.

Mum, I’m bored! Not at Kinderhotels, where you’ll find something for every age group. Younger children love the indoor play areas and the farm animals, the wizard school and the swimming lessons. The older ones can find adventure with rafting, abseiling and exploring the great open spaces. And everyone enjoys the cinema, skiing, free supervised net surfing and PlayStation – and the free ice-cream and soft drinks! Indoor activities, outdoor adventures, it’s all go from morning ‘til evening. Our English-speaking staff are fully-trained in health and safety, ensuring your children are in safe hands while you relax.

Family Hotels providing Free Childcare Our promise to you … • Babies and children are welcomed with open arms. Free childcare, English-speaking nannies and safe play areas for youngsters will guarantee they’re happy while you relax. • High quality from check-in to check-out. Each Kinderhotel must pass regular testing to remain in the Kinderhotels family.

• No overcrowded beaches, just relaxing river and lake locations to be enjoyed in the pleasantly warm Austrian summer. • Alpine locations providing top-class ski facilities from, or near your hotel. From tots to pros, whether you prefer skiing or snowboarding, Kinderhotel winter activities have something for the whole family.

• Free childcare for babies as young as seven days old. • All baby equipment provided, from bibs to buggies… and it’s all free. • Nannies are fluent in English and are fully-trained. • Healthy eating is standard. Most of our food is organic and locally produced.

And finally... Winter, summer or anytime in between, we promise to make your Kinderhotels holiday an unforgettable one for you and your family. We have 20 years experience in making sure both children and adults are treated like royalty.

A break for parents! Me time

We believe in giving mums and dads a break from their buss lives

One problem – what are you going to do while your children are entertained from morning ‘til evening? Those lazy, hazy summer days in the Austrian Alps provide the perfect setting for busy parents to de-stress. If you choose one of the many exhilarating activities in the mountains surrounding your hotel, or prefer to relax by the pool or in the spa area, the stresses of parenthood will soon be a thing of the past. The winter months provide just as many exciting opportunities for outdoor activities and your Kinderhotel is a gateway to ski paradise. Although children are the top priority at Kinderhotels, we provide that much needed ‘me’ time for mum and dad too.

Information - 0845 0822 422 www.kinderhotels.co.uk

After dark Evening has arrived and after an exciting day children are sure to be happily dreaming in their beds. Kinderhotels‘ babyphone monitoring system will alert you to any noise in your child’s room should you wish to pop downstairs to the hotel’s bar for a nightcap. Interrupted meals can become a thing of the past for parents, dining at Kinderhotels will re-kindle those romantic meals alone!

The newest attraction at the hotel is the ‘Pony Ranch Ponderosa’. Here, children can have their first ever ride or improve on any previous riding experience under professional guidance. (Not available in winter)

Feel good on the outside and inside - retreat to the Rodenberg’s super modern beauty & wellness lounge set over 240m2. Mums and dads will also appreciate the fine dining a-la-carte restaurant ‘Zinne’ and the elegant, yet cosy Rodenberger dining lounges.
