Perfect for the winter vacationer
In Schoppernau there is a great skiing area (www.diedamskopf.at). The valley station Diedamskopfbahn is only 600 meters away from our house. 150 meters next to our house is the ski bus stop (transfer – free of charge). The bus brings you to the valley station or to the neighbouring ski areas Salober-Hochtannberg (www.salober.com), Damüls (www.seilbahnendamuels.at) or Mellau (www.bergbahnenmellau.com).
In the village, right next to the valley station of the skiing area, there is a very good children’s ski school. Directly behind our house runs a 30 km long cross-country ski run, which you can use free of charge. For non-skiers there are several kilometres of prepared hiking trails and various possibilities for tobogganing/sledging.
Holiday in spring
The animals are happy to finally return to the spring pasture after the long winter. Small hikes can already be undertaken in May, when there is still some snow high in the mountains. Riding out and helping in the stable is also possible.
Activities in summer
At our farm there are various play equipment (a giant trampoline, various go-karts, bicycles for children and adults). We are happy to take the children on guided riding tours to the Bregenzer Ache, through the forest and into the village. If the weather is bad, the children can play in the stable and take care of the horses.
Additionally there is a foosball table in the cellar. In the evening they can watch cow milking and the children can also help with haymaking. In the village there is, organized by the tourism office, a special child program with many activities (child climbing, adventure day, migrations with the forester etc.). In Schoppernau and the surrounding area there are also some beautiful hiking trails, which can also be walked on with prams. The heated outdoor pool is only a few minutes’ walk away.
What to do in autumn
In autumn the cows and the farmer are back from their alpine holidays. The children can help in the stable work, drive cows to the meadow, ride a bicycle (in the valley there is a nice, well-developed cycle path), go hiking in the mountains etc..
