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 is largely made of wood chips, which also contribute to a pleasant visual 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. The Alpine playground Bort is perfect for a family trip.
