Milk and cheese from the Alp, fresh air, crystal-clear water and a whole lotta fun. A mountain holiday belongs to the best childhood memories. When you add an alpine holiday paradise with family friendly infrastructure you’ve got a perfect and stress-free vacation. Princely Moments – Liechtenstein style.
The mountain village Malbun in Liechtenstein is the perfect family destination with its fantastic alpine landscape at 1,600 m (5,249 ft). The resort is dedicated to families and understands the needs of children, parents and grandparents. The Swiss Tourism Office also agrees and awarded Malbun the highly coveted “Family Destination” seal of approval.
Theme Weeks in the Mountains
Families will experience more in 2018 during special Theme Weeks. The summer season kicks off in June with “Mountain Awakening,” a chance to explore the mountains during their most exciting phase. In this week, guests of Liechtenstein alpine hotels discover the high-alpine blossoming during hikes between snow fields and flower meadows. The program includes a hike and picnic with animals friends – marmots and eagles.
Alpine-Wellness-Weeks offer another way to be with nature, featuring Forest Bathing, Outdoor Yoga and Kneipp Water Exercises among other natural activities. The power of alpine herbs is a popular trend, so we’ve created the program “Taste the Mountains – On the Trail for Alpine Herbs.” After an introduction to mountain herbs, guests go out on their own to collect herbs and then learn how to prepare the herbs in special cooking classes.
Children are #1
Of course, the little ones have their own fun. There’s no better playground than the mountains with everything to make children's hearts beat faster: water, stones, wood and grass. During the “Mountain-Kids Adventure Weeks,” children discover the forest, the explorers path, stones, caves and much more under the supervision of qualified care-givers. The “Walser Saga Weeks” offer guided Saga Hikes, a Saga Night and a Saga Theater where children learn about the fascinating world of the Liechtensteiner Legends – Adults may join their little sprouts for traditional storytelling.
Some Prefer the Easy Route
For all those who love nature, but shy away from physical exertion, Malbun’s Wellness Offer feeds both body and soul. Here’s how it goes: sleep in late, enjoy a lavish and leisurely breakfast, then arrive comfortably at the loveliest places in the Liechtenstein Alps. Included is a gourmet picnic and an alfresco sunset aperitif – with views, of course.
Malbun Cares about Kids
The youth programs are set up to allow parents time to relax too, knowing that their children are in good hands with professional caregivers. Children are invited to join the “malbi-Rascals” gang who discover nature on their own, look for treasures, observe animals and bang around at the electro-mini-car track – all under watchful adult eyes. The smallest ones (3 and up) are looked after with loving care and creativity. In the evening, relaxed parents reconnect with their happy children resulting in a win-win for the whole family.
