Long-distance hiking

One of the most beautiful ways to get to know the Zillertal is on one of the many long-distance hiking routes. Long-distance hiking means getting to know the region and yourself while you’re walking. You will cross flowering Alpine meadows, go past rippling brooks and raging waterfalls, craggy rocks and lonely mountain peaks.

One-day and multi-day tours with lots of opportunities to access the route allow even less experienced amateur athletes the chance to experience the breathtaking panorama.


The Trans-Alpine Crossing


The Alpine Crossing is a 7-day hiking route from the idyllic Lake Tegernsee at the foothills of the Bavarian Alps via Lake Achensee, also known as the Fjord of the Alps, and the famous Zillertal to Sterzing, the northernmost village of Italy.
A route which prioritises the natural and cultural experience and culinary enjoyment.

The Berlin High Trail

The Berlin High Trail is a customisable, multi-day tour (up to 7 days) starting in Mayrhofen and leading through seven mountain huts from the Gams Hut to the Karl-von-Edel Hut through the heart of the High Alps Nature Park of the Zillertaler Alps up to a height of 3,134 m. An exciting natural landscape with glaciers, lakes and alps accompany you on the high alps route over the main ridge of the Alps and makes it an unforgettable experience! Particularly well-known are the Berlin Hut and the lofty summits of the Zillertal and Tuxer main ridges, like the Hochfeiler at 3,509 m, the Großer Möseler at 3,478 m and the Olperer with 3,476 m.

The hike on the Berlin High Trail is achievable for hikers who feel confident in high Alpine regions. Good equipment, stamina, surefootedness and a head for heights for some passages and hiking experience are important. Generally, you will not need any climbing equipment, pickaxes or climbing irons; difficult parts are secured. We recommend taking a GPS device although this is not compulsory. All the paths are well signposted and visible in good weather. Do not forget about the sudden changes in weather, which can even bring snow in the summer.

Peter Habeler Route

Since his childhood, Alpine professor Peter Habeler has been closely connected with the Zillertal Alps. He conquered five eight-thousanders, including being the first to climb Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen with Reinhold Messner. However, the famous Mayrhofen-born mountaineer considered the most beautiful summits to be at home in the Zillertal. And so on the occasion of his 70th birthday, the new Peter Habeler Route was named after him, and has been an added attraction to the Zillertal mountain world since this summer.

The approx. 56 km long circular hike with an elevation of 4,990 m and a descent of 4,980 m leads via 6 huts (Geraer Hütte, Tuxerjochhaus, Friesenberghaus, Olpererhütte, Tuxerjochhaus, Landshuter Europa-Hütte) through the high-alpine landscape on the main ridge of the Alps. The routes have hiking times of 2.5 to 8 hours with different levels of difficulty and lead over easy terrain such as alpine meadows and gravel as well as over rock, moraine and scree, with and without summit ascents. 

Whether you take the clockwise or anti-clockwise direction, the aim is to circumnavigate the peaks of the western Zillertal Alps. You can choose to start from the mountaineering village of Ginzling in the Zillertal or St. Jodok with Schmirn (Toldern and Kasern) and Vals in the Wipptal. You can also set off directly from the Brenner Pass or from the Pfitschtal, from the Schlegeis basin or from the Hintertux. All valley localities can be accessed with public transport (rail or urban bus).
