365 days of fun each year

Our season runs throughout the year

Quite simply, the doors to Godei’s world of play, with all its attractions from the cinema and theatre to the family bowling alley, soft play areas, sports hall – even the go-kart track – are open to our younger guests all year round.

A wide range of additional activities are always on offer: regular events include shows, a magic school and Fred’s Swim Academy. Our little mascots, Godei, Smiley and Smileyne, invite you to come and dance with them every day and will make the kids laugh with their legendary hip swings.

Fred’s Swim Academy

Fred the frog and the children hotel’s Smiley have been friends for many years. Fred’s Swim Academy is one of Kinderhotels Europe’s longest partners, with its 3-step learn-to-swim programme. Around 40 Kinderhotels teach swimming to children from 3 months' old including our Kinderhotel in Upper Austria. So don’t be a frog – learn to swim on your Kinderhotel holiday!

From 08:00 to 12:00 Monday to Friday the youngest of the young ones are able to try swimming for the first time with our qualified swimming instructors. Therefore, a section of our large pool is reserved for these classes.
