Spend your holiday actively

Regardless of whether it is with family, partner or friends

Hofer Alpl is surrounded by beautiful hiking trails and invites visitors to be active and indulge in sporting activity. No matter whether it is with a mountain bike, e-bike or by foot – there is something suitable for everyone in the forests around Hofer Alpl.


Hofer Alpl is a holiday paradise for young and old.
The large alpine meadow and adjacent enchanted forest are huge adventure playgrounds where your little ones can discover and experience nature and its secrets. Our children’s playground with swing, slide and climbing park ensures fun – and mama and papa always have an eye on their kids from the sunny lawn.

Our mountain inn is home to goats and rabbits. They love children and enjoy being fed and petted.

On the other hand, in the winter the little ones can have a good romp with toboggans and bobsleds on the meadow next to Hofer Alpl, or indulge in a snowball fight and build a snowman.

» It cheers my heart when children laugh.Here at Hofer Alpl we also look forward to hosting families with children. «– Monika Hofer
