Go-karting at the house race track between the hotel and the playground – the weekly highlight of our motor sports enthusiastic guests.
When the first obstacles are placed in the morning …
… then everyone knows what that means: Please move your car to another parking space. Today in the afternoon there is go-karting here.
Which karts are used?
High-quality Hubi karts with a powerful 200 cm³ are used. The seats are partially adjustable and offer enough space so that small children can ride together with a parent.
Is this only something for beginners?
Clear no! At the beginning, of course, leisurely laps are driven. In this case, all karts are in use and driving is slower. Everyone is allowed to get to know the vehicles. All children – even the very young ones – should be able to do a few laps with mom and dad. Soon the laps become faster. Towards the end, we switch to racing duels. Man against man, woman against woman, anyone who wants. The goal is to catch up with the other driver on about ten laps.
From when are children allowed to drive alone?
You can’t make that a blanket statement. Anyway, children must be tall and strong enough to safely control the go-kart. Please understand that for safety reasons only our race director Adolf can make this decision on site. If in doubt, children may ride with parents and try again next year.
Ebnerbichl Animal Farm
Weekly we visit the animals at Ebnerbichl. Small and large animals such as goats, kangaroos, rabbits, pigs, etc. can be petted and fed. In addition, all children are allowed to ride the ponies on the lunge.
Trip to Ebnerbichl
A dream for children: the joint trip to Ebnerbichl. There are many animals (goats, kangaroos, rabbits, pigs, guinea pigs, ducks, turtles) to feed, play and pet. Ponies are ridden at the riding arena.
First we meet at the reception at the agreed time and then drive together to Ebnerbichl. Cost per child € 10,–
Additionally: private visits and riding lessons
You are welcome to book additional riding lessons with the ponies or a private visit through the reception. Please make this request known early enough so that family Ebner can plan.

Sensopark – Discover your senses
In the stress of everyday life, we often forget how important nature is. The senso-meditative hiking trails through the municipality of Berg im Drautal serve to help you realise and appreciate nature again with all your senses. The book with the description of the paths and exercises for the senses you can get at the reception.
Out together in the Sensopark
The best way to do this is to join Jutta on a free Senso walk. Jutta is a well trained hiking and pilgrimage guide. Senso walks are held weekly from spring to fall. The starting point is the bog Kneipp basin opposite the playground.
Who can participate?
Whether you hike as a couple, as a family, with friends or alone with Jutta, you won’t regret it. Quite the opposite. Rather, Jutta adapts her tours to her companions, the weather and what the farms in the village have to offer. Their repertoire includes games in the forest, exercises for all the senses, cultural visits and a wealth of knowledge about history, flora and fauna. You will be amazed at how creative Jutta can make a simple walk!
