Family Holiday Entertainment
Fany welcomes the kids at GITZ!
Our jolly mascot, FANY the elephant and the whole GITZ team give a special welcome to all kids and their families.
There’s always something exciting going on at GITZ. Fun is the order of the day. Our heated open air pool (33 x 25 meters) with sunbathing lawn is the hit amongst kids of all ages – usage included in camping fee – and ensures that there’s no time to get bored.
In the organic show garden or at the petting zoo, our small guests can playfully learn about nature or exert their energy in sporting activies and fun games. In this way many new holiday friendships can be made.

Holiday Fun for Teens
When on holiday with their family, teenagers tend to want to take off on their own – it’s simply more cool than always staying with the family - but they still like being a part of it. At GITZ all youngsters can find the right balance between family involvement while still doing their own “thing” with kids of their own age.
Teens interested in sport will have fun and make new friends when playing beach volleyball, football or in the pool. What about learning how to slackle in the school holidays? Classmates will be impressed when school begins again. Kids can just hang out on the large sunbathing lawn at the pool or maybe try their hand at pinball and air-hockey in the youngsters’ room. And really cool party fun is for certain when the kids’ disco takes place.
Getting to know more about nature is a central theme in woodland exploration hikes as well as in night time walks, pony rding, cycling or in workshops in our organic show garden. Together with nature-loving GITZ guests an insect hotel was built as a joint project on our site that now serves as a dwelling for small creepy-crawlies among the rhododendron bushes at the pond.
On our art project days teenagers can try their hand at wood-carving or stone carving.
The Skyline Amusement Park in Bad Wörishofen (approx. 1 hour’s drive from GITZ)is our excursion tip for families with young teenagers. The park’s top attraction and absolute family highlight is the vast white water rafting ride - the biggest and longest in a park in the world. The large, round orange boats are first hoisted 34 meters up by vertical lift and then the thrilling “Wild’n Wet” ride begins – a rush of pure adrenalin is guaranteed. Bavaria’s favourite amusement park offers a variety of other fun rides, a large leisure pool and the circus “Luna”.
The offer of leisure-time activities for teenagers is rounded off with the choice of several open-air pools right on the lakeside as well as clubs and discos in the surrounding area.
