Spruce tree castle

Spruce tree castle
Spruce Tree Castle in Zell am Ziller

Come and explore a magic realm of discovery – on the mountain pastures of the Rosenalm near Zell am Ziller.
Every childhood is a time of wonder and enchantment. In the Spruce Tree Castle children and their families, together with the little Spruce Sprites, can discover that magic again.
A long, long time ago the busy little Spruce Sprites came to the Rosenalm pastures and set to work to create a grand castle and grounds for the Prince and his wife, who planned to come and live in the mountains.
Guests, both children and ‘kids at heart’, can now enjoy a world of fun and adventure clambering on the climbing tower, sliding down the tower chute and ‘working’ in the crane tower. The breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains is best enjoyed from the 18 metre-high viewing tower. In addition to a vast water-play area and an adventure playground, budding little builders can carry on the work of the Spruce Sprites in the builders’ hut and crane. There are also numerous idyllic spots in which to rest, relax and unwind, making a summer holiday in the Zillertal Arena even more enjoyable!
