Climbing workshop (6+ years)

All great masters of climbing start out small. Maybe even at our hotel Bad Ratzes, at the climbing workshop with mountain guide Helmut. Perfect for all adventurers (and all adventurers to-be) from 6 years and older.


Day 1: Get to know each other
On the large meadow around the Hotel Bad Ratzes we learn more about each other and our climbing skills with icebreaker and all kinds of skill games such as slack-line, zip-line and Tyrolean bridge.

Day 2: Rock climbing
Our own Hauensteiner Burgfels and the erratic rock below is our playground for your first experience in rock climbing. Now we get our first instructions for moves and belaying while climbing, to make sure we reach the highest point safely.

Day 3: Day trip to a fixed rope route in the Dolomites
The adventure begins. We drive to the Passo Sella and climb the via ferrata Cir – perfect for aspiring rock acrobats. Track of medium difficulty that leads us to an audacious Dolomite peak.


Workshop from 13 to 17 July 2020

Parkour Workshop for Teens

During the Parkour Workshop with the longtime Parkour coach Marco Schmidtke (Wundafit, Hannover), self-esteem, concentration, creativity, discipline, motivation and of course coordination are promoted. The young participants learn how to overcome obstacles or why it is good to be able to do a handstand. A huge amount of fun is always guaranteed!

Parkour Gymnastics makes use of several areas of sports. It focussed on jumping, rolling, landing, climbing, running and holding the body. In addition, some secondary skills are trained, such as estimating distances or making use of physical laws. An always important by–product of this work is the training of social competence.


Workshop from 19 to 24 July 2020 for young people aged 12 and over
Monday to Friday: 4 x 4 hours
Expenses contribution: 55.00 € per youth per week

Circus Magic Workshop for Kids

The colourful, dazzling circus atmosphere full of artists, jugglers and acrobats is simply fascinating and pretty close to magic really. Or as Ernest Hemingway put it “Circus is the only place in the world where you can dream with your eyes open.” Actively taking part in circus adventures means trying out many different arts!

No pressure, only fun! Circus education is oriented towards the ideas and abilities of the children and thus promotes their self-confidence: truly magical are the moments when the little artists try new forms of movement and unexpected talents come to light. And after the training? When the children show in the ring what they have learned, your applause will be the reward for every effort.

The association “Träumer, Tänzer und Artisten” has been training children from the age of 3 and teenagers since 2003 and combines dance, theatre and music with modern artistry.


Attention: Workshop postponed to 2021

Theater-Workshop im Bad Ratzes für Kids & Teens

What’s so special about this workshop? In just one week, we write our own play, and celebrate its premiere on the last day of your stay in front of all young and older guests. While the children spend a few hours in the afternoon in the company of two actors or theatre educators (in cooperation with Vamos-Eltern-Kind Reisen and the association Theater im Urlaub from Berlin), the parents can relax and make plans on their own. A good opportunity for the parents to go on a longer hike without their children. During the day there is still enough time to explore the mountains and nature together as a family.
