Winter holiday with children in ski resort

In winter, the Sauerland is transformed into a real winter wonderland. This makes your winter holiday at the family hotel particularly beautiful.

Take the whole family on a trip tobogganing or explore the surroundings on a horse-drawn sleigh ride. There is plenty for every member of the family to experience in the Sauerland during the cold season.

A real skiing holiday is no problem - optionally also with cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or snowboarding.

There are a few smaller mountains nearby whose ski slopes are perfect for beginners.

What exactly the local winter sports area has to offer, you can find out here.

What is there to do with children in winter?

Classic tips are, of course, ice skating, building snowmen and sledging. But there doesn't necessarily have to be snow: Guests at our family hotel also enjoy going inside to the sauna while the kids have fun at indoor playgrounds. Germany is also a great destination in winter - with a short journey

Winter holidays with children - where to go?

For a successful winter holiday with children, not only classic destinations like the Alps are recommended. There are also family-friendly places in the Sauerland where skiing, tobogganing and walks in the snow are possible. In the Sonnenpark, kids not only have fun outside, but can also let off steam indoors. 

To make your family holiday perfect, children of all ages get their money's worth with us. Of course, our accommodations are equipped accordingly. If you want a skiing holiday, you don't have to stay in a mountain hut, you can also choose a comfortable hotel with 4 stars!

What clothes and equipment do children need in the snow?

For winter activities, children need warm clothing such as waterproof jackets, snow trousers, gloves, well-fitting boots, scarves and hats.

Think of clothing in layers to be able to react to different temperatures. Also, the onion look keeps you particularly warm. Don't forget sun protection, as snow reflects UV light!

Are there sledges and ski hire on site?

Your kids can start their first attempts on the boards at our partner ski school.

What safety measures should be taken when skiing or sledging?

Make sure you have well-fitting helmets, appropriate equipment and adequate training. Choose child-friendly ski slopes, communicate the rules and prefer to stay at home in bad weather conditions such as heavy snow.

The focus is on having fun together - that way you will always be safe on the slopes!

From when can children attend a ski course and toboggan?

Children can gain their first experience in a ski course from around 3 to 4 years of age. However, it is important that they are motor and emotionally ready for it and are on a suitable ski slope. In specialised ski schools, kids learn the basics in a playful way and gain confidence in the snow. Most ski resorts are geared towards younger children. So nothing stands in the way of a skiing holiday!

Holidays in the snow are of course also possible beyond the ski slope and mountain railway. All you need is a sledge! You can go tobogganing with your offspring from the age of one. Put the child in front of you on the toboggan, hold him or her tightly - and off you go!
