Tisens is known for its felt art. The international path of felt art, a 4 km long fairy-tale path with felt figures is a highlight for both kids and adults.

We also recommend the Vorbichl adventure trail in Prissian. The path is also suitable for strollers and particularly popular during the flowering period of Erica. Also, it leads through shady woods.

Rainguthof animal farm in Gfrill offers many unforgettable experiences for families with kids too. The rustic mountain farm is the home for many animals such as ponies, goats, horses, ducks and pigs. Many of them can be stroked by kids and their yearly offspring is a highlight for all guests.
