A Magical experience

Juppi’s Enchanted Forest

Juppi’s Enchanted Forest on the Reither Kogel

The Enchanted Forest: a magical place for the whole family, nestled between woods and meadows, framed by mountain peaks.

Your enchanting journey of discovery begins right at the Reitherkogelbahn mountain station. Various exciting, natural play areas await you along the buggy-friendly loop trail which, in addition to fun and games, also guarantees that your kids will have a good night’s sleep. While the youngest enter the magical world and discover the bewitched tree or the haunted marsh, you can relax and enjoy the fresh mountain air and alpine panorama on one of the loungers. Wonderful, such a time-out in the Alpbachtal!

Opening times: Juppi’s Enchanted Forest is open during the Reitherkogelbahn operating hours from May to October. Please note: the lift is closed on Wednesdays.

Tip: Admission to the Enchanted Forest is included in the price of the gondola ride. If you're staying overnight, you will receive the Alpbachtal Card when you check into your accommodation. The card includes plenty of discounts and services, such as free use of the Reitherkogelbahn.


The highlights of Juppi’s Enchanted Forest

We don't want to promise too much, but we regularly hear reports of spellbound children.

They are said to leave Juppi’s Enchanted Forest in remarkably well-behaved and in high spirtis. The reasons are not known to us, but may have something to do with the following highlights:

  • a fire station play area
  • an enchanted village with lots of play areas
  • a wobbly bridge
  • a fun magic tree
  • a haunted marsh with a mystical wooden wizard
  • a bird’s nest swing
  • a giant photo frame for selfies with a view of the Alpbachtal
  • Juppi’s Enchanted Forest puzzle
  • a petting zoo
  • swing bowling
  • a barefoot path
  • Juppi’s water games

On a journey of discovery through Juppi’s Enchanted Forest

Tip: The leisurely circular hike becomes even more fun with our treasure map. The map shows all the play areas and best spots, such as our spectacular viewing platforms. The kids can collect stamps at each station and there is a small surprise present waiting for them. Once you have collected at least four stamps, pick up the present at the lift bottom station or in the Alpbachtal tourist offices.

Buggy-friendly loop trail on the Reither Kogel

After the excitement of the Enchanted Forest, the circular hiking trail to the Reither Kogel offers you all the chance to unwind.

The approximately 1.5 hour hike to the summit starts at the haunted marsh. The partly paved roads and gravel paths are ideal for providing your little ones with their first summit experience. After you have passed the "giant's bench", viewing platforms await you with wonderful panoramic views of the Alps. The path also leads you to our popular photo frame, perfect for capturing family memories of the Alpbachtal.

Good to know: There are no mountain huts to stop at for refreshments along the trail, but you will find several picnic areas with tables and benches. Afterwards you can satisfy your hunger at the restaurant Liftcafe Heisn at the bottom station. While you relax on the lovely sun terrace, the kids can let off any remaining steam in the children's playground.
