A family holiday in Vienna has to fulfil many needs. As parents, you want to have just as much fun on your holiday as the kids – even if you have different ideas of what fun means. But Hotel Das Himberg has everybody covered – there is so much to see and do near our four-star family hotel near Vienna.
Let’s look at your stay at Hotel Himberg from your kids’ perspective: morning begins at the breakfast buffet with so many tasty things. Tonnes of fun activities fill up the day, and at night everyone settles blissfully into their Himberg hotel beds. A little tip for the summer: be sure to visit the Waldbad Himberg swimming pool close to our family hotel near Vienna.
Family excursion to Laxenburg Castle
Laxenburg Castle with Austria’s largest historic castle park has plenty for families to enjoy: a 4,000 m² playground, boat hire at the pond, a scenic train that takes you through the gardens and so much more. This place is home to many great attractions for families!
The Castle also holds theatre performances and musicals! Ask our reception about what’s on at Laxenburg Castle during your stay.
Thermal baths in the Vienna Woods & Vienna
It’s always a good idea to have a few bad weather ideas up your sleeve. The Römertherme baths in Baden, the thermal baths in Bad Vöslau or the Therme Wien thermal baths are always worth a visit on your family holiday in Vienna, rain or shine! With so many great places to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Have a blast at the 3,500 m² Römertherme thermal baths as you swim under the largest free-hanging glass roof in Europe. A kids' pool is open to little swimmers and there are also two outdoor pools, a lap pool, a sauna area and a fitness centre.
THERME Bad Vöslau
An oasis of R&R, surrounded by imperial buildings: swim in a place full of history! With the motto “a fresh new summer”, the thermal baths in the 45,000 m² park with four pools and unique rock formations invite you to take a dip. Lots of space to stretch out and plenty of private spots are the perfect setting for relaxing, swimming and having a wonderful day.
Fun is on the programme here: waterslides, diving boards... and the adventure pool! Kids love the garden where even more adventure awaits. Sound fun? It is! The new Therme Wien is truly special. What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy your family holiday in Vienna.
Tomorrow’s plan? Head to the world-famous Schönbrunn Zoo!
Schönbrunn Zoo is must-see on family holidays in Vienna. More than 500 species of animals call this zoo home. Visit the Polarium and imagine with your kids what the penguins must think of the many “animals” looking back at them!
In addition to exotic animals, Schönbrunn Zoo is also home to domestic animals: you can even watch cows being milked in the stables of an original Tyrolean farm.
