How it all adds up: Family savings with the Nationalpark Sommercard.

To be honest, it was always hard for me to get excited about mathematics. But I have to admit, arithmetic has never been this much fun. Bottom line: We’ll see just how much the included Nationalpark Sommercard will save you during your summer holiday with ALPS RESORTS. So, let’s do it!

Vacation in a holiday home or apartment including family program

Let’s assume the following: You are a family of four, in other words, parents with two enchanting children at the exciting ages of six and eight. You are spending your summer holidays in Salzburger Pinzgau, inside the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region. For example, with ALPS RESORTS at Carpe Solem Rauris.

In the course of your research on our website looking for a suitable apartment for your summer vacation, you discover that the Nationalpark Sommercard is automatically included whenever you stay with ALPS RESORTS inside the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region. This prompts you to take a closer look at all of the benefits which the Sommercard includes. As a consequence, you come up with the following holiday program for you and your family: TOP excursion destinations including Grossglockner High Alpine Road and Krimml Waterfalls, the Slide Path in the Wildkogel-Arena region, a visit to Ferleiten Wildlife Park, a train excursion, a ride on the summer lifts in Rauris including the bird-of-prey station and a gold-panning site … along with a museum visit.

Know what? All of those highlights will cost you a grand total of just €30.20. For all four of you. With the Nationalpark Sommercard, on those services alone you will save an incredible €459.80!

Nationalpark Sommercard: added value for your summer holiday in Salzburger Land

As you can already see, the Nationalpark Sommercard offers a full program for your summer holiday. Exciting, for families in particular, because your children will be ultra-happy (and completely worn out by evening 😊) whenever there is so much to keep them occupied. Treasure hunts, slides, gondola rides, splashing about in the swimming pool...

With the Nationalpark Sommercard, every day you can choose one free attraction from more than 60 excursion and sightseeing destinations. Also included: daily use of public transportation and one all-day ticket for the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. Even after you have “used up” your free service, many card partners offer an additional 50% discount on future admission. Precisely how such a full family program might look, I have illustrated in greater detail in the following example calculation:

So, did I exaggerate? This guest card is included with the cost of your stay at ALPS RESORTS inside the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region between 1 May and 31 October. We will issue the Nationalpark Sommercard to you the minute you check in. In theory, you could take full advantage of your first free attraction on the day you arrive; and the last one on the day you leave.
