You'll want to be a kid again. In the Forsthofgut, the one-of-a-kind family hotel in Leogang in Austria. In our beautiful, spacious, 30,000m² garden there's not only room for children to flourish. Fantastic adventures await our little guests:

Children's Farm in the Nature Hotel Forsthofgut in Leogang

Our Pinzgauer miniFARM is a very special children's farm. Set within the 30,000m² Forsthofgut garden, it has been lovingly rebuilt in the traditional style of an old Pinzgauer farm village.

Here, children can learn all about life on a farm in a playful way. Zealously and full of pride, they will take care of the animals. Children from 2 years on will be taken care of and guided by Auntie Gitti and her team in the "Children's Club".

You can get up close to timid forest animals during a game feeding with the hotel director, Christoph Schmuck in our very own game park. Encounters with the magnificent red deer and fallow deer in the tranquillity of the forest leave a lasting impression on children and adults.

Walk along the Leogang Ache stream on the biking and hiking trail in the direction of Hochfilzen. Walk past the small chapel in Hütten. Stay to the left side of the stream, the gravel path turns to the left along the stream bed. Turn left after the narrow wooden bridge on the forest path in the direction of the Show mine.
