13 family houses, a Community Centre, a kindergarten and a Village Director's house were erected on a site which was put at the disposal of SOS on favourable terms by the community of Altmünster. The children of the SOS Children's Village attend the local schools and thus are well integrated into the local community. The teenagers live in the SOS Youth Facility on the premises of the SOS Children's Village.

Two educational communities named "Simba" and "Tabaluga" were established for socially disadvantaged children, who are in need of short-term accommodation. They aim at re-integrating these children within a short period of time into their families of origin. Recently, an SOS Home for Retired Mothers was added. Here, the retired SOS Children's Village mothers can enjoy their retirement and stay in touch with their families.
