At the Children’s Hotel Felben you can combine a family holiday in the comfort of a four star superior hotel and a farm holiday. What makes our family hotel here in Mittersill so special is the integrated working farm estate. The farm itself is much more than just home to the cows. The stables and barns are always open to visitors enabling parents and children to get a first-hand impression of what life on a farm is like. Farmer Toni looks forward to your visit and, if you feel like it, some help feeding and mucking out the animals. Toni is always on hand to answer your questions about the animals and nature in general.
Agriculture and livestock farming enjoy a long tradition in Salzburg County. What is today the Children’s Hotel Felben was originally, and still is, part of the Felbermeilinger Farm Estate which still supplies our kitchen with its dairy products.
- Animals to visit, stroke and feed
- “Bringing in the sheaves” traditional hay harvesting

- Helping at feeding time
- Grooming the horses
- Building an activity hutch for the guinea pigs
In both summer and winter you and your children can enjoy the joys of pony riding either in the paddock or in the indoor riding hall right next to the farm at the Children’s Hotel Felben. Our good-natured ponies and Haflinger horses are used to children and therefore perfectly suited for a child’s first riding lessons. We start off with a session on the lunge in the paddock or hall.
Our hotel mascot the cow “Clara Clover“ has made a home for her furry, cuddly animal friends right next to the playground and has named it “Clara’s Ark”. In the spacious stalls and hutches in Clara’s pets’ corner children and parents get the chance to stroke sheep, goats, rabbits and alpacas any time they feel like it. There are of course chickens that wander around the barns and stables freely and guinea pigs that look forward to receiving some attention.
A holiday on a farm for the whole family combined with all the comforts and amenities of a first-class children’s hotel is exactly what you’ve been looking for? Then the team at the Children’s Hotel Felben in Mittersill look forward to receiving your non-binding reservation enquiry!
