Around the Hotel Hanswirt
Activities for all the family
The Hanswirt is the ideal starting point for entertaining and adventurous excursions for all the family.
Located in the village of Unser Frau in Val Senales, the Archeopark is dedicated to the life of Ötzi the Iceman, who was found on the nearby ridge. The interactive museum consists of a permanent exhibition and an open-air area and is particularly suitable for a visit with children. The replica Stone Age village allows visitors to bake bread, use a bow and arrow, make pottery, work with leather and watching the process of smelting copper.
Naturns Adventure Pool
The Naturns Adventure Pool offers fun and action for all the family and is located just a few kilometres from the Hotel Hanswirt. In the event of bad weather, there is also a large indoor pool with numerous extras. Whirlpool baths and aqua-fitness, sun loungers and water slides, sunbeds and massages will all ensure an unforgettable trip for the entire family.
Next to the Hotel Hanswirt is the largest digital model train set in Italy: with a surface area of 1,000 square metres, this one of Europe’s largest private collections, with 1,800 locomotives and 21,000 trucks and carriages. The model of South Tyrol in miniature is one of the highlights of the Railway World, showing the land in detail in 1:87 scale, with interactive elements and fascinating special effects.
Schnalstal climbing park
The Schnalstal Valley is an ideal destination for adventurous outings. The Marchegg climbing park at Kurzras has a fixed-rope route and is very family-friendly. The Juval climbing park at the entrance to the Schnalstal Valley is somewhat more demanding: it is located below Juval Castle, home of extreme mountain climber Reinhold Messner. The 18-metre high Ötzi Rope Park near the Vernagt Reservoir requires both courage and skill.
In Naturns, just a few kilometres from the Hotel Hanswirt, a special experience awaits: a superbly equipped skatepark. The well-maintained area with its adjacent football, beach volleyball and tennis facilities offers the young (and the young at heart) plenty of new challenges and fun. The miniramp, quarter, funbox and London cap are just a few of the highlights on offer at the skatepark.
