Also in winter the province of Bolzano is absolutely family-friendly, thanks to the wide variety of possible activities.
Not only in the warm seasons, but also in winter families are warmly welcome in South Tyrol, and the offers regarding activities is in no way inferior to the one in summer. Almost all skiing areas provide ski courses for kids or ski kindergarden with animation for kids. Usually children learn how to ski on their own within a very short time. Magic carpets facilitate the transport of the little ones.
As far as the equipment is concerned, we recommend you to rent it on site at the local ski rental service, as kids grow very fast and within a short period the purchased equipment will be too small. By the way: on the slopes in South Tyrol, kids under 14 are required to wear helmets, and a helmet won’t do any harm to mum and dad, too, and is absolutely chic on top of it.
Of course there are also winter holidays off the slopes. Enjoy a ride in a horse-drawn carriage together with your beloved ones, build a snowman or try ice skating. By the way, in almost every village, there is an ice skating ground.
Also tobogganing is a common activity for family winter holidays. There are many short and not too steep slopes that are also suitable for kids. And maybe you will get a hot chocolate as a reward in the cosy mountain hut? Just ask your mummy and daddy!
A real must-do in your winter holidays is of course a snowball fight. Enjoy your winter family vacation in South Tyrol.
