Would you like to visit the archeoParc with a youth group during summer holidays?

When the nights become short and the days get long in the main valleys, then it’s vacation time! What is more obvious than to combine a trip with your children’s group back to the time of Ötzi with a day’s excursion in the cool Schnals Valley? Bus number 161 runs every hour and will bring you directly to us.

We offer our summer tours in the following languages: German, Italian, English, and bilingual.

Cave artists (age 5 and above)
Splendid adornments (age 7 and above)
No rush for rushes (age 9 and above)
Stone Age logistics (age 11 and above)

Adventure Day – 6 hours (age 8 and above)
Adventure Day – 24 hours (age 10 and above)

We will also be glad to carry out our program proposals for school classes for your group, as well. Please take into consideration which of our programs your children may have already seen. If you wish to avoid duplications, we can recommend reserving one of our vacation programs. That is because our summer programs and school-year programs differ from each other.

Do you have your own idea for a program?
We will be pleased to customize a program for your group. Please just contact us.

Cave artists

(k1) Paint Just Like in the Stone Age

Our ancestors knew how to make paints by mixing ocher, charcoal, various earths, and a binding agent. After a brief explanatory tour, we will grind our own pigments, make a brush out of a twig, and paint our own little cave paintings. While they dry, we will try grinding flour on a Stone Age mill and bake bread on a stick.

Target group: age 5 and above
Duration: 2.5 hours
Cost: 9 euros

Splendid adornments

(k2) Making Stone Age Jewelry

In contrast to today, during the time of Ötzi not many people were in possession of an object made of metal. Ötzi’s axe was apparently something very special. As were the various pearls made from copper sheet that are known from his time. After a brief tour through the permanent exhibition, we will forge a copper pearl between stones at the fire, a little good luck charm to hang up. After that, we will try out archery.

Target group: age 7 and above
Duration: 2.5 hours

Stone Age logistics

(k4) Sewing leather just like in the Stone Age

Today, it is Tupperware containers and aluminum foil that solve our smaller everyday logistical problems. Two containers made of birch bark and a belt bag made of leather rendered similar services to Ötzi. After a brief explanatory tour through our exhibition, we will try sewing leather, followed by Paleolithic spear throwing. Children may take home the small leather pouches they make, perfect for storing little treasures.

Target group: age 11 and above
Duration: 2.5 hours
Cost: 9 euros
