Once again a bit of geography, because although most people have heard of the Brenner Pass, not many people know that it has a valley off to the side, in which you can have a great time in winter (there are even ski lifts) but also in summer. The Pflerschtal also has the advantage that it isn’t very big, therefore you can reach your destination quickly – for example your hotel!
Let’s be clear from the start: The Feuerstein is not a boutique hotel, but rather a large areal, which was completely renovated in 2017 and which was also extended with great detail. Such details include a complete gymnasium, or a play-barn with two floors, which contains even a wood-workshop, a changing room with fantasy costumes, or a haystack that the kids can jump into.
There’s even a mud-room made up of sand, where they can spend hours building sand castles with a digger. At first this might sound a bit strange for a “Pretty Hotel“, but Feuerstein has implemented this so well, that after visiting them, all we can do is give them a high recommendation.
Basically the Feuerstein Family Resort is – as the name suggests – a playground for families. The idea behind it is very simple: Kids have their own energy and preferences, even on holiday they love to play from seven in the morning until eight in the evening – and all this without a break. And here they can do just that – even under professional supervision.
The Rooms & Chalets
The Feuerstein Nature Family Resort has a total of 80 rooms and twelve chalets for large families or groups. The new rooms are nicely modest and we especially like the genuineness, which is reflected in the subdued colours. Lovely wooden floors and high quality bathrooms are two definite pluses, which round of the accommodation wonderfully.
The Feuerstein belongs to one of those new resorts, which offer a breakfast, lunch and a five-course evening meal. The restaurant is a little more serious in the evenings, but very comfortable and when we visited, the food was excellent! Of course there is also a kids table and kids menu.
Apart from the bathing lake and the four pools (one indoors, three outdoors), they also have their own mountain-spa with sauna, steam baths and all kinds of treatments. The areal ist so comprehensive, that even if you get an all-day rain, you can still have a great time wallowing in the spa landscape and pool area.
As we already mentioned, children are the top priority here. Childs are being overseen by experts, who teach the Maria Montessori philosophy. There are also plenty of excursions to be had and naturally the parents are also allowed into the play-workshop, the gymnasium and the water slides, etc.
Since summer 2022, the Feuerstein Family Resort also has its own riding school. There are lessons with ponies for the little ones, riding lessons for beginners and advanced riders, vaulting and cavaletti training as well as rides through nature. Those who like can also come by just to feed and care for the horses.
Families, large families, small families and mountain-maniacs.
