Children and families Arber/family offers Arber

Arber is an ideal family ski resort. A great family offering is provided including the large ArBär Kinderland and ArBär-Zwergenland children's areas, a parallel giant slalom for kids with a double time measurement system, the Family Cross Park as well as a toboggan run. The 6-person Sonnenhang chairlift is specially equipped for children. The safety bar closes automatically and opens automatically at the mountain station. The good price-service ratio for families in the Bavarian Forest is also a highlight.

Special offers for families Arber

ArBär -Kinderland children's area

The ArBär -Kinderland children's area at Thurnhof offers children optimal conditions. Four magic carpets (people movers) with lengths of 33 m, 87 m, 102 m and even 126 m are located within the fenced-off ArBär children's area. Numerous easy slopes ensure optimal learning success. The entrance to the children's area is directly at the sun terrace of the Thurnhofstüberl. The transport capacity of the magic carpets is an impressive 1000 children/hour. The mascot is the ArBär (Ar Bear). Ski rentals, a ski depot and playrooms for the children with child-friendly restrooms round off the offering. There is a separate ski pass for the ArBär-Kinderland (multi-hour or whole day).

The ArBär-Zwergenland is located slightly below the ArBär children's area at Thurnhof. Small children can practice their first curves here using the magic carpet and are cared for by the four ski schools. Parents can also practice with their children without using the ski schools. There is a separate ski pass for the Zwergenland.

Arber toboggan run

The ascent to the beginning of the 1,200 m long toboggan run is with the 6-person Sonnenhang chairlift. The relatively flat and easy run leads to Thurnhofstüberl. A free toboggan bus brings the tobogganers back to the Sonnenhang chairlift again for more tobogganing fun. Children can also toboggan in the ArBär children's area. After ascending with two magic carpets, the children can access the lower part of the toboggan run.
