The sundial on Mt Elfer

Distance: 800m     

This sundial – which you can walk around – is just a few steps away from the mountain station of the Elfer lifts. It’s the largest accessible equatorial sundial in the Alps. The awe-inspiring structure made of larch wood has an inside diameter of 8 metres and enchants young and old alike.

Lake Kampler See

Distance: 2km

This popular recreation area for locals and holidaymakers is located in a district of Neustift im Stubaital. The lake is surrounded by idyllic mountain scenery and nestled amidst rolling meadows, lined by shade-giving trees. There are swings, slides, a sandpit, and a climbing wall for kids.

Stubaier Gesundheitssee swimming lake

Distance: 3.5km

The Stubaier Gesundheitssee (literally “Lake of Health”) may be small but is a fantastic swimming spot in the sunny village of Milders. It’s located on the grounds of the hotel “Zum Holzknecht” but is open to the public. It’s fed with fresh spring water that has been prepared using the Grander technique. If the water temperature drops too low, the lake can even be heated.

Adventure Park of Tyrol

Distance: 6km

It’s Tyrol’s first adventure park – with the highest high ropes course in Tyrol – and is located at the entrance to Stubaital. It includes 130 challenges and 13 courses. The entire climbing network is 1,632 metres long. The high ropes course is open every day, and the restaurant at the park is open all year round.

Klaus Äuele Kids’ Park

Distance: 9km

The park is located at the WhiteWaterPlayground and is designed to look like a dry riverbed. It includes the “spiral of Theodorus” with climbing walls, a rope jungle, a double swing, a rope swing, a viewing platform, and a large grassy area to relax in.

Serlespark Water World

Distance: 15km

The Serlespark features three crystal-clear lakes, known collectively as the Serles waters. At the small lake, you’ll find a water games area with a pine-cone floatation system, wild-water course, and raft. There are sunbathing lawns and relaxation areas for adults all around.

Grawa waterfall

Distance: 16km

It’s an impressive natural monument and the widest waterfall in the Eastern Alps. Depending on the season, it’s either a thin trickle of water (in autumn) or a wide, two-tiered waterfall (in early summer). Generally, it’s 180 metres high and 85 metres wide. The waterfall is a 15-minute walk away from the Grawa Alm hut car park. When the sun is just right, the little water droplets create a rainbow!

The ice grotto on the Stubai Glacier

Distance: 18km

A fascinating world of fissures, moulins, and moraines, deep in the eternal ice. You can visit the 150-metre-long ice cave yourself: Admire the gleaming blue walls made of pure ice – on average between 400 to 500 years old – and the little air bubbles trapped in them. The grotto has a constant temperature of zero degrees Celsius in both summer and winter. For children, there’s a special side passage with exciting highlights.

The “Top of Tyrol” viewing platform

Distance: 18km

It’s located at a spectacular 3,210 metres above sea level and offers a 360° view that reaches all the way to the Dolomites in good weather conditions. The telescope lets you admire 109 three-thousand-metre peaks. The platform extends 9 metres out over the rocks. It’s just a 5-minute walk away from the top of the 3S Eisgrat lift, meaning you can reach it in comfort.

The Mammoth Adventure Play Area on the Stubai Glacier

Distance: 18.5km

The adventure playground on the Stubai Glacier makes young visitors’ eyes shine. It’s located at the Eisgrat mountain station of the Stubai Glacier lifts and welcomes you with a six-metre-tall wooden mammoth. Kids can climb up two levels and then slide back down through the mammoth’s trunk.
