Are your fingertips already starting to tingle? Then take your kids and experience Thomas Brezina’s three exciting themed trails!

* Definition suitable for buggies:
Trails that are marked as suitable for buggies can be accessed with a baby buggy because of their sufficient widths and solid surface.

However, you should be aware that you are out in the mountains. So we recommend:

  • quality footwear
  • mountain buggy
  • a brake at the buggy
  • wrist strap in case you should slip
  • Shouldn’t you just be by yourself, let your companions help you to push the buggy.
