The best in the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region
A holiday in Mayrhofen-Hippach in the Tyrolean Zillertal becomes a perfect experience – equally rich in contrast and emotional. Mayrhofen and Hippach are down-to-earth and romantic, but also super sporty, diversified and stylish. In the winter, the “leisure mountain” Ahorn and the “action mountain” Penken leave nothing to be desired. There is something for every “slope freak”, such as the gentle blue downhill run for children, families and beginners as well as the “Harakiri”, Austria’s steepest ski slope! But the holiday region in the Zillertal also offers all kinds of activities away from the slopes. An extensive offer of activities such as groomed cross-country skiing trails, toboggan runs and an ice rink is available for all sports-minded holidaymakers. Prepared winter hiking trails lead outdoor enthusiasts to romantic forests in the surrounding area, while the Adventure Swimming Pool in Mayrhofen provides a fantastic offer in terms of wellness and relaxation. A varied programme featuring après-ski activities, bars, clubs, discotheques and the Europahaus event centre ensure action and entertainment with sensational events.
The fascination of mountains is noticeable in the summer, since 55 three-thousand-metre peaks are waiting to be conquered in the Zillertal Alps! This offer is unbeatable. It is the paradise for mountaineers and the cradle of alpine tourism. Modernity and tradition balance each other, whether it is at the alpine huts or in the villages. Families will find “paradise on earth” here with an extensive range of activities for children. But the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region also offers all kinds of challenges for mountain bikers, such as gentle routes in the side valleys or crossing the Alps via the Pfitscher Joch mountain pass. Numerous “power spots” for tanking up on energy and forgetting everyday life are located in the middle of the pristine landscape of the 379 km² High Alps Nature Park Zillertal Alps, which was chosen “Nature Park of the Year” in 2015.
