Located right at the top station of Acherkogel cable car. The restaurant is the perfect starting point for leisurely family walks within the scenic pasturelands of Hochoetz.

 Directly next to the Restaurant is the big playground WIDIVERSUM. While the parents enjoy the sun, the kids help the mascott WIDI to find a magic crystal! 


You can also reach the restaurant by foot, but the trail is very steep and not family friendly. It's 1.200 m altitude difference and about 2,5-3 hours walking. 

The entrance to the WIDIVERSUM is free of charge!
