Spruce Tree Castle in Zell am Ziller

Come and explore a magic realm of discovery – on the Rosenalm in Zell am Ziller.           

Every childhood is a time of wonder and enchantment. In the Spruce Tree Castle children and their families, together with the little Spruce Sprites, can discover that magic again.

A long, long time ago the busy little Spruce Sprites came to the Rosenalm pastures and set to work to create a grand castle and grounds for the Prince and his wife, who planned to come and live in the mountains.

Guests, both children and ‘kids at heart’, can now enjoy a world of fun and adventure clambering on the climbing tower, sliding down the tower chute and ‘working’ in the crane tower. The breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains is best enjoyed from the 18 metre-high viewing tower. In addition to a vast water-play area and an adventure playground, budding little builders can carry on the work of the Spruce Sprites in the builders’ hut and crane. There are also numerous idyllic spots in which to rest, relax and unwind, making a summer holiday in the Zillertal Arena even more enjoyable!

  • ‘Castle grounds’ spanning more than 5,000 m²

The spruce sprites are expanding their habitat and spreading to the new Rosenalm reservoir - that will become Spruce Lake! The cosy, buggy-friendly ‘Alm walk’ links the Spruce Tree Castle with Spruce Lake and the Rosenalmbahn mountain station. Next to the very popular Spruce Tree Castle, a new attraction will appear in summer 2019 that will excite more than just the kids! With floating jetties, boat rental, pleasure spots, a ‘Pixie Cove’ (shallow area) for the little ones, a dam path, a floating island and much more, the new bathing lake on the Rosenalm has all the water fun you could desire!
A basic offering will be in place in summer 2019, before it really comes into its own in summer 2020. The Spruce Lake on the Rosenalm is the ideal place to improve the wood-lake-balance!
