Description Alpine playground Bort

At the alpine playground children of all ages will find various activities. The climbing and balancing landscapes specifically promote the motor skills of the children. Coordination and balance are trained in a playful way. The playgrounds are largely made of wood and other natural materials. Necessary metal parts such as the slide are made of stainless steel. The fall protection consists largely of wood chips, which also visually contribute to a pleasant ambience. Parents can watch or enjoy the scenery from the neighboring restaurant, tent bar or picnic area

The large sandbox is covered by a protective awning. The climbing towers are equipped with additional elements such as slides, ropes and nets. A small stream offers additional fun for children who like to dam up water or build bridges. Children can really let off steam on the gymnastics equipment, slides, swings, seesaws and trampolines. The balancing and climbing landscape forms a good basis for later mountain hikes with the whole family.
