These are the special moments that make a family vacation together in the Mountain Village of Animals so unforgettable. Here in Mühlbach am Hochkönig, we have more animals than residents, so we call it the "Mountain Village of Animals".

Enjoy the mountains, the fragrant alpine meadows, crystal-clear streams, enchanted forests, and rustic alpine huts.

You will find not only cats, cows, horses, sheep, goats, and chickens here but also ponies, pot-bellied pigs, alpacas, guinea pigs, a donkey, rabbits … and we can't forget our star, "Manfred the marmot" along with his "Fraufred" and the whole family. At the Arthurhaus, you will find the "Marmot Path", which is an easy hike for the little guests.

Why does a cow actually moo? Do all cows moo? :) Where does milk come from? And what does milk have to do with cheese?

Find out the answer to all these questions for yourself with the children's program in the Mountain Village of Animals. Speaking of "finding"... Our geocaching "Highking Code" is for treasure hunters. You can head out on your search with a GPS device (available from us) and coordinates. This fascinating trail leads you and your GPS through the three villages of Mühlbach am Hochkönig, Dienten, and Maria Alm.
