The large adventure playground at the Rosshütte middle station has a mining theme and gives children the opportunity to learn while having fun. The focal point of the sandy area is the mining climbing tower with its long tubular slide and beside that there is the mine complete with swivelling mining cart and panning station. There are also shovels, buckets, brooms and other important mining tools required for a ‘hard day’s work’. As well as the mining theme, the playground also has climbing frames, swings, scramble netting, an exciting tubing slide and air cushion trampolining for some acrobatic practice.
Next to the adventure playground is a big wooden ball run feature with various stations and obstacles. Simply get a wooden ball from the machine and once you have finished playing, you can keep it as a little souvenir.
The nearby Rosshütte restaurant has a spacious sun terrace and a cosy café where parents, children and day-trippers can enjoy some tasty treats while taking in the spectacular views over the Olympiaregion Seefeld. Just a short walk down from the middle station is the small lake, the Kaltwassersee, which is used to provide water for the snow-making in winter and which provides a pleasant place to sit in summer.
The playground and trampoline area is supervised when the mountain lifts are in operation. The path
up to the middle station is suitable for families and push-chairs and the walk takes about 2 hours.
There is plenty of free parking available at the bottom station and older guests, large groups or families
with push-chairs can make the ascent more comfortable by taking the funicular to the middle station.
