Children rule the roost, a whole week of adventure, fantasy and games...

St.Anton am Arlberg has long been famous for its friendly attitude towards children. Whether winter or Summer, not just the big ones, but also the little ones feel themselves very well taken care of here.

But there are certain days when life seems to take a leap upward and becomes a huge party. Namely, at the Children's Festival. That's when "kids" rule the roost." That is the guiding light for five days in August. From 1:00-6:00 every afternoon, the hoards of kids took over the controls in the world village on the Arlberg and took immense joy in the superbly organized programme of fun and games, adventure and creativity.

Painting, drawing, modeling clay and handicrafts on the first day. The next day: adventures in the wild rappelling and crossing streams. Making campfires and huts. Well secured, slowly overcoming some of those little fears and then being downright proud of everything one has accomplished. Then, an afternoon at a farm. Gathering impressions, hands-on involvement. Cows, sheep, horses. Goats and rabbits. Milking and making cheese. Hours of unforgettable experiences and memories that will not fade.

The climax at the end: a day of games and theater in the pedestrian zone that the parents raved over just as much as the kids; and a Children's Olympics of the fun-type disciplines, a huge lark, rounded off with a convivial barbecue party in the holiday park. By the way: once again, kids will "rule the roost" in the beginning of August: a terrific, burs tingly full programme awaits all the 6-14 year olds. For children with guest card and local kids, participation is without charge.
