Philosophy

The Kinderhotels philosophy

Carefree holidays with a quality guarantee

For more than 20 years Kinderhotels Europa has been synonymous with carefree family holidays with premium quality care. The organisation offers accommodation to suit every taste, from family-run businesses to luxurious wellness hotels. All members are inspected by Germany’s independent product safety consultants, TÜV, use only highly qualified employees and regularly undergo secret quality inspections.

Quality before quantity

The hotel group favours “class over mass” when selecting its member hotels. There may have been nearly 100 Kinderhotels in 1998, but now the numbers have been more or less halved. This reduction ensures that partner hotels are implementing the specified criteria, so that the group can guarantee them. Strict quality control may slow growth, especially in new European Union member countries, but offers guests the greatest possible assurance that their families will receive the best possible care.

Future prospects

In future Kinderhotels intends to expand its base from five to six Central European countries. The Group also hopes to offer a family-friendly product in cities too. Kinderhotels Europa is currently negotiating with major hotel groups on the possibility of transforming a whole floor of a hotel into a Kinderhotel. General Manager Gerhard Stroitz is, however, clear on his aim of “A maximum of 60 Kinderhotels in the next five years”.

Babies, kids and teens

All carers are trained within the Group and receive continuing professional development to ensure that child-care quality continues to develop too. We place great emphasis on the ability to communicate in several languages with young children. Our own training system ensures that member hotels are able to offer a varied, age-appropriate programme for all children, from babies to teenagers.

Many member hotels have specialised in care of babies from just a few days old and offer the ultimate in care for brand-new parents, with a choice of HIPP baby food, baby care packs in rooms, a baby paddling pool and a doctor on call 24 hours a day.

Teenagers don’t have to settle for toys and a paddling pool either. Many Kinderhotels have close ties to outdoor activity centres and sports specialists, who offer a range of exciting activities, such as mountain biking, climbing, or horse riding.

Special offers for children

Littler tearaways don’t get bored at Kinderhotels. When the weather is fine, little ones and their carers explore the countryside together and learn interesting information about the woods and fields. If it rains, there are spacious play areas, children’s pools, magic schools or a children’s theatre to keep them entertained.

The whole family feels great

Initially attention was very heavily focused on the children’s wellbeing, but now Kinderhotels targets the family as a whole. Experiencing things together is just as important as “me” time for parents, or time together as a couple and if you know your children are being well cared for, you can relax and enjoy your holiday.

Active family holidays

The varied programmes of sports and activities offered by Kinderhotels also provide adults with a wide range of fun activities and exercise, such as hiking, Nordic walking, climbing, rock climbing, cross-country skiing, horse riding and much more. Many Kinderhotels also offer superb wellness areas where exhausted adults can recharge their batteries with massages and treatments.

Wellness for stressed parents

Mum and dad will not only rediscover themselves, but also the joy of being a couple in the treatment rooms, sauna complexes and stylish quiet areas. Whilst the little ones learn to swim with Fred the frog, or invade the spectacular pool complexes, parents can enjoy real peace and quiet.

Mum and dad can also rekindle their romance with a candle-lit dinner, while their offspring enjoy dinner with friends at the children’s table.
