Gerlos Familiennest

We have put together a varied children’s programme in Gerlos for a perfect summer holiday in Zillertal with children. The weekly programmes range from fun and games at the Durlassboden reservoir to canyoning and a torchlight hike at night. While the parents are hiking in the mountains, they know their loved ones are in safe hands, because our trained staff attentively take care of children of all ages.

Outdoor adventures on a family holiday

The “Family Nest” is a fun weekly programme for children aged 5-11. Every day between Monday and Friday our childminders take care of our young guests and provide a lot of fun and variety on your summer holiday in Zillertal. The programme runs from 10.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m., although it is always possible to pick them up from the ArenaKids Club until 4.00 p.m.

Participation is free of charge if you show your Zell-Gerlos TopCard (Guestcard). The programme mainly takes place without parents, but they are welcome to attend the information morning on Sunday and the torchlight hike on Monday evening.
