Bobos Adventure Outdoor Kindergarten, run by the ski school in the high season only (so check dates direct in advance!), accepts snow loving children aged four and up at its base at the Patscherfkofel Cable Car. Children may be booked in for any period from an hour onwards, with the facility open all day every day.
Although cities are rarely child-friendly, Innsbruck is better than most, with most of the busy main roads outside the city. There is plenty of parkland dotted around and trams to hop on and off to get you around. Children enjoy the Alpine Zoo, where indigenous species can be seen in environments similar to their native habitats. Most are also enchanted by the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in nearby Wattens, a three-dimensional adventure of crystal, light, and sound.
