The ALPRIMA Aparthotel for families

At the ALPRIMA Aparthotel, you can spend your holiday exactly the way you want to – perfect for a trip with the whole family! Since you can self-cater at your apartment, you don’t have to adhere to any predetermined meal times. That can be quite the relief for families with small children – because the little ones often have a will of their own. In short: At the ALPRIMA Aparthotel, you’re completely flexible – and which parents wouldn’t want exactly that?

Upon request, we’ll supply the following for your holiday with your loved ones:

  • baby cot
  • baby bath
  • baby phone
  • changing mat
  • bathrobe
  • baby chair
  • potty
  • child’s bed


Childcare at the ALPRIMA Aparthotel

The ALPRIMA Aparthotel in Hinterstoder has its own recreation room for children.. That’s where the little ones – supervised by their parents – can play to their heart’s content. There are plenty of toys they can choose from. And if you would like to enjoy a little parents-timeout, we can provide for a surcharge childcare as well. That’s how you’ll know that your children are in safe hands while you get to spend some quality time alone or with your partner. Sounds good? Just talk to our staff at the reception!

Upon request, we’re also happy to organize a babysitter for your apartment – if you would like to spend a day or an evening without your children.


Fun in the water for all ages

How about some refreshment on a hot summer day? The Freibad Hinterstoder outdoor pool is only about a ten-minute walk away from the ALPRIMA Aparthotel. From the end of May to the beginning of September, little and grown-up water lovers can splash about and enjoy the cool water. In the children’s pool, even the youngest ones can take a dip. Sounds enticing? It gets even better: With the Pyhrn-Priel AktivCard, admission is free! That way, your next family holiday will be even more fun!


Children’s fishing at the Schmidi-Teich pond

In Vorderstoder, the Schmidi-Teich pond – picturesquely embedded in a pristine natural setting – waits for young anglers. River trouts, rainbow trouts, pikes, zanders, basses and lots of other types of fish move about in the crystal-clear water. That doesn’t just make grown-up anglers rejoice. Every child can catch their own fish at the Schmidi-Teich pond. Fun with a fishing rod guaranteed! After a successful catch, there’s a number of comfortable seating possibilities where you can enjoy some peaceful moments together.

Perfect for little adventurers: fairytales at the chalk cave

Listen up, adventurers and explorers: From the middle of March to the middle of October, you’ll have the chance to take a guided tour through the chalk cave in Vorderstoder. Equipped with sturdy shoes, warm clothes and a torch, you’ll enter the gloomy cave. Inside, Gottfried Ramsebner tells you spooky tales and lores about the Pyhrn-Priel region. It’s an experience that captivates children and adults alike.

Fairytale rubbing walks in Hinterstoder

Have you ever heard of a fairytale rubbing walk? No? Then, let’s go! Grab a fairytale rubbing booklet at the tourism office in Hinterstoder along with some special chalk and go on a journey of exploration! Nine stations guide you through the most beautiful spots of the Stodertal valley. At each stop, you’ll find a fairytale picture board with a captivating story and a rubbing station. What you need to do now is transfer the motive on the brass plate onto a page of your booklet with the help of the special chalk – by rubbing it over the area. Now it should be clear what the name is aiming at … Additionally, you’re asked to solve a quiz. If you get the answers to all six questions right, you’ll receive the cuddly plush gnome Stoderix for free at the tourism office. Awesome, right?

Lantern hike to the Schafferteich pond

The nighttime hike to the Schafferteich pond in Vorderstoder is an experience in nature of the exceptional kind. The leisurely hike takes about an hour and leads you to the picturesque pond. And to ensure that the path through the forest is sufficiently lit, every child gets to carry a lantern. That’s incredibly fun – especially for younger children!

Hiking with toddlers and baby buggies

On holiday with the itty-bitty ones? That doesn’t mean you can’t go on amazing hikes out in the crisp mountain air. In Hinterstoder, there’s a number of trails that are suitable for buggies:

  • Hutterer Böden round (RundWanderWelt Hinterstoder)
  • village promenade (RundWanderWelt Hinterstoder)
  • Polsterlucken round (RundWanderWelt Hinterstoder)
  • Schiederweiher – Polstergut – Dietlgut

Even small children can do these one to two-hour walks because the routes don’t contain any significant ascents.

Good to know: The trails can be explored in winter, too!

Playing and romping around at the village playground

Up the climbing tower and the bridge and back down through the big tube slide … The public village playground offers enough space to play, climb and romp around and is only four minutes away from the ALPRIMA Aparthotel on foot. And while the little ones are busy swinging or sliding, the older ones can play different ball games on the Fun-Court. Everyone’s going to find something fun to do!

Skiing with the whole family

At both ski resorts in the Hinterstoder area, little and grown-up snow bunnies feel right at home. There are wide and easy slopes for children both in Hinterstoder-Höss and on the Wurzeralm. But the absolute highlight is the Sunny Kids Park. That’s where the little ones can practice their first few turns on skis. Thanks to a magic carpet, ski merry-go-round and a professional ski school, today’s mini skiers can quickly turn into tomorrow’s pros! Meanwhile Mum and Dad get to swoosh down the slopes, knowing their kids are in the best of hands!

Tip: If you don’t want to buy ski equipment for your little ones, you may rent it at the shops and sports stores!

Toboggan fun for all ages

Dashing through the snow and down the mountain – a toboggan ride is tons of fun for everyone! You can walk or take the toboggan taxi up to the Landhotel Gressenbauer and then ride back down into the valley along a distance of 1.2 kilometres. The natural toboggan run in Hinterstoder is floodlit in the evenings as well. Just let us know at the reception and the team of the ALPRIMA Aparthotel will be happy to organize a toboggan and taxi for you! All you have to do is wrap up your family in warm clothes and nothing can stop you from having an incredible toboggan experience!

Horse-drawn sleigh rides through snowy Hinterstoder

Covered in warm blankets, you can ride through the wintry landscape – always accompanied by the sound of the snow crunching underneath the sleigh and the horses’ hooves. A horse-drawn sleigh ride isn’t just something for love birds but makes children’s hearts beat faster too. A ride through the magical winter wonderland of Hinterstoder is a marvellous experience for the whole family!
