An experience for the whole family in Pfunds

In a mountain clearing above Pfunds – on the Ochsenbühel – an interesting forest and adventure playground awaits young adventurers.

This comprises a range of play equipment and informational elements – all made of solid wood. This includes the 10 x 6 metre exhibition tree house, which contains a whole host of interesting things: a two metre-high tree book, a wood cart pulled by oxen, a “tree tops book”, a woodpecker tree and numerous information boards on timber floating and transport, modern forestry and the importance of protecting the forest. Also part of the exhibition is a cones presentation and a station where you can experience various forest smells. Right beside the exhibition tree house is a woodchopper’s lodge built to look like an original.

The adjoining play area offers everything from a flying fox to swings, slides and rope and balance stations, as well as a picnic and BBQ area. A little diversion for children and parents, together with pure relaxation and a great view of Pfunds and the Inntal valley. 


Forest adventures in Ried

Wherever children are having fun, parents are happy and relaxed. Bibi’s fairytale forest in Ried is a magic place where children can’t get much happier.

Get to know nature through play, explore with curiosity, hide in thick forests and experience water in all of its forms... enjoy all of this and more at Bibi’s fairytale forest. Ponds and a water play area bring visitors closer to the element of water. Little ones can hang out on the kids’ forest cableway and on swings. Skill is also required on the balance bar, and you can get a good view from above. The quiet of the forest and children’s laughter is the perfect recipe for parents’ relaxation.

Bibi’s fairytale forest is easy to reach from Ried in just 20 minutes by means of a forest path. You can get back either on the same path or by taking a detour on to Frauns (approx. 20 min) and along the River Inn back to Ried.


Pirates have been spotted at Badesee Ried!

Idyllically located in the landscape, Ried’s bathing lake is one of the many fun swimming opportunities in the Tyrolean Oberland. Here, a unique adventure land awaits young and old alike. 

A pirate ship that is 10 x 8 m in size and 5.6 m in height, a pirate tree house, an eagle’s nest and a giant swing will keep boredom away. Children can “board” the ship via climbing nets, conquer it via a wobbly bridge and leave it again via a slide. A few metres along, a 5.5 m-high pirate tree house with a tube slide, climbing tunnel and wobbly bridge provides the next adventure. The giant swing is a mighty 17.5 x 8.5 m in area and 5.3 m high, and is a real hit with the kids. And for all young explorers that really like to hit the heights, there is the 6.85 m-high eagle’s nest, with its nest baskets, ladders, rope ladders and climbing nets.

The main parts of the park are designed in wood to make them look natural, and are positioned in such a way that parents can see their little ones from the loungers at all times – ideal conditions for an all-round successful day at the lake that you’ll want to repeat time and time again!


Art with and in nature

In the pine forest of the Radurschltal valley, renowned artists from far and wide have designed a sculpture park for the whole family at the heart of stunning nature. 

The Radurschltal valley, near Pfunds, features the largest uninterrupted pine forest in the eastern Alps. A well-founded route leads through the Radurschlklamm gorge and along the stream, gently up to the pine trees and bogs. At the Radurschalm at the end of the valley, a sculpture park (at approx. 1,800 m) invites visitors to take a break. Well-known artists have proven their skills and created various pieces of art. An original bark hut has been recreated for younger and older visitors alike to enjoy. Secluded spots, a babbling brook with a water wheel and a small lake tempt you to play and stay awhile. And those that still have some excess energy can climb up to the Hohenzollernhaus (2,120 m), a destination that is popular across the generations.


Das Wichtel-Treffen

Wo hat sich wohl der nächste Wichtel hier im Wald versteckt?

Entlang des Badsteiges in Pfunds ist seit diesem Jahr eine ganze Wichtelbande entlaufen. Ob hoch auf den Bäumen oder am Wasser entlang, verstecken sich die verschiedenen Wichtel mit ihren tierischen Freunden. Mal sehen ob Ihr alle Wichtel entdecken könnt. 



Pfunds in miniature

Right on the Via Claudia Augusta in Pfunds, a miniature Pfunds has been created, and is a piece of art that will delight adults and children alike.

Just before the water treading facility in Pfunds, real artists have worked over the years to recreate buildings of Pfunds in the beautiful forest environment – in mini format. These gems are a feast for the eyes for all ages. Mini-Fundus – as it is called – refers to the Latin origins of the name of the village of Pfunds: “fundus” means “land”. The name Pfunds appears in documents for the first time in 1282. But it’s not land but rather cool water that water treading fans like to have beneath their feet: Three foot baths and an arm bath are available for water treading, at a constant temperature of approx. 8°C. The round stones around the pools are also beneficial, stimulating the foot’s reflex zones.


Discover on our trail different plats and flowers - with the mystery the hike becomes an adventure (puzzle sheet is available in our information office)!

Most people know more plants than they think...

Check yourself - how many do you recognize? The boards at the wayside offer all sorts of information and worth knowing about the plants. Spiss is known for the variety of flowers - in this alpin flower hike you will discover many new species that do not flourish in the valley.

Where you can find our trail:

On the end of the village there is a parking lot by Gasthof Alpenrose - from there is a forest road which leads to the grill and playground of Spiss. Arriving this place the loop trail branches off to the left and leads you over the flowering mountain meadow easily rising to alp Zanders (with possibility to stop by)

Walking time: 2 - 3 hours
