Children’s Farm – The sustainable play area for little holidaymakers, Großarl

The Family Nature Resort Moar Gut in Großarl (AT) impresses with a renovated child care and play area, the so-called Children’s Farm. The basic substance of the pre-existing building was preserved. Its new design is inspired by the habitat of a cock, the mascot of the hotel: air, earth and the stable.
Thanks to a diverse range of rooms, little hotel guests can pursue their needs and interests freely and independently. Chicken ladders, ramps, slides, caves and niches enable even the youngest children to follow their natural curiosity and make their own experiences. Natural materials such as wood, sheep’s wool, cork and linen create a healthy room climate.
A central location and special highlight is the one-of-a-kind, giant rope climbing net made of natural fibers, which connects two floors. All installations up to the fall protection mats were made by local craft businesses according to environmentally conscious aspects. Hurray, it’s possible to avoid plastic entirely!
