The Malta Valley is also an ideal place for holidays with children. Numerous options for a full-day program guarantee relaxation for the parents and bright eyes for the children..
A fluffy experience for the whole family!
Unforgettable experiences for the whole family await you on the large adventure meadow with playground in the Esel Park Maltatal. On about 30,000 square meters you can meet more than 100 animals of different breeds.
And if you want to get a little closer to the friendly comrades, you can ride them at a leisurely pace and get to know them on the property.
Experience the highest waterfall in Carinthia
The Fallbach – the highest free-falling waterfall in Carinthia – falls so beautifully into the valley. It is one of the landmarks of the Maltatal. And thus one of the most popular sights in the region.
At its feet is the Water Adventure Park – a nature playground, lovingly placed exactly where the forces of the Malta Valley are best felt. Climbing garden, tree house slide and water maze entertain the youngsters while the parents enjoy the view.
At 1,933 m above sea level, the highest dam in Austria is located: the Kölnbrein dam. Even the journey to the dam is a small adventure: an adventurous journey on the 14.4 km long Malta Hochalmstraße, characterized by rock tunnels and hairpin bends.
The numerous waterfalls along the Malta Hochalmstraße also give the Malta Valley the name “Valley of the Falling Waters”. The “Maltese Wasserspiele” are particularly impressive. HierHere the water flows over several rocky steps into the depths until it finally meets the beautiful “Blue Swamps”.
The road is characterized by rock-cut natural stone tunnels and sharp bends, which make the journey a pleasure for car and motorcyclists. At the narrowest points, two traffic lights ensure the safety of our guests. You can leave your car in the car park at the end of the road, from where you can easily reach the other attractions on foot, such as the sky bridge at the dam.
Admittedly, the Drautalperle is not in the Malta Valley. But visiting it is a nice addition to your holiday in the region. And it only takes about 30 minutes to get there from the Maltatal. Once arrived in the spacious and modern designed building, the Drautalperle not only guarantees endless swimming fun for the little ones, but also for well-deserved relaxation for the parents.
A varied offer is waiting to be enjoyed to the full: swimming area for children and toddlers, water slide, sports pool, extensive massage offer, sauna area, brine steam bath and much more. The Drautalperle thus plays a decisive role in making your holiday in Carinthia not only sporty but also relaxing.
But do not skip all the other possible activities, there is so much to experience in the Malta valley, both for young and less young …
