Family winter holidays

Ski holidays and winter fun with children in Carinthia

There is no time for boredom during a winter family holiday in Carinthia where you can enjoy family-friendly ski resorts, ice skating, tobogganing, winter walks by the lake and much more – everything you could want from a winter family holiday in Carinthia. Plus, the sunny climate in Carinthia makes the prospect of a winter family holiday even greater.

Children ski for free at Goldeck

Families who love winter sports will adore Goldeck because children under the age of 14 ski for free. At HOTEL AM SEE DIE FORELLE, we are happy to organise ski passes for you and your family. Goldeck, which is the local mountain for Lake Millstatt, is about 15 minutes away by car or on the free ski bus. Ski lockers are available at the resort.

Family-friendly ski resorts in Carinthia

The other ski resorts near Hotel am See****Die Forelle in Carinthia are also great for families. At Katschberg, several ski schools help you make quick progress when learning how to ski or snowboard and your little ones are also in good hands at Katschi's Children's World.

At the ski resort of Bad Kleinkirchheim, a magic land, a ski kindergarten and 4 ski schools ensure everyone in the family has a great time on the slopes. In Gerlitzen, families can enjoy the kids snow park with a fun tube, boxes and lots of other fun features.

Tobogganing and ice skating

Tobogganing is fun for the whole family. At the four natural toboggan runs in the area, you can enjoy tobogganing down a prepared track combined with a stop at a mountain hut.
Another fantastic experience in beautiful natural surroundings is to breathe in the healthy winter air as you ice skate on Weissensee lake. The Weissensee is the only lake of its size in Europe that consistently freezes over in winter and it is specially prepared for ice skaters.

Water fun at an adventure pool after skiing

If you fancy water fun and relaxation as a bit of a change from being outside, the Drautalperle adventure pool is fun for the whole family. The Goldeck day pass includes 2 hours at the pool. Or you can, of course, also just come back to Hotel am See****Die Forelle and relax in the panoramic indoor pool, spa and relaxation room at our hotel.

Your family room at Hotel am See****Die Forelle is ready and waiting: the only thing standing between you and a ski holiday in Carinthia is a booking or non-binding enquiry.
