Find your accommodation in Zillertal?

Where action and indulgence get pulces racing

The Mayrhofen-Hippach region with its surrounding villages is considered the birthplace of alpine tourism in Zillertal. From relaxing walks to adventures for the whole family to challenging climbing tours – thanks to the Mount Penken and Mount Ahorn duo, everyone will find what they are looking for here.


Summer in Mayrhofen-Hippach

Ginzling mountaineering village with surrounding Nature Park Zillertal Alps especially gets hikers’ hearts beating faster. The Nature Park House with the newly opened “Hidden Treasures” exhibition is also located here. And numerous boutiques, restaurants, bars and cafés are waiting to be discovered in Mayrhofen, the secret capital of Zillertal. Popular cultural and excursion destinations such as the Stiegenhaushof show distillery, the Strasser-Häusl and the Erlebnissennerei Zillertal round off the offer comprehensively.

But the idyllic side valleys have a special charm: The Stilluptal is located right in the nature park and invites hikers, walkers and cyclists to explore. The waterfall trail leads past picturesque alpine pastures and crosses romantic torrents several times. Another side valley – the Zillergrund – stretches from Mayrhofen over a good 20 kilometres to the Austrian-Italian border. In the far end of the valley is the three-kilometre-long reservoir of the same name. Schlegeis reservoir – one of the largest reservoirs in Austria – is located in Zemmgrund and blends harmoniously into the
magnificent natural scenery. Its unique dam wall also offers unforgettable adventures: Schlegeis 131 with via ferrata, Flying Fox, abseiling station and Giant Swing.

Climbers should also visit the Ewige Jagdgründe climbing area and the Nasenwand and Zimmereben via ferratas. Not to forget the Mayrhofen adventure pool: the ideal destination for the whole family with its various pools, slides and attractions. And on hot summer days, the water and nature
playground Brindlang and Auenland Sidan offer a chance to cool off naturally.
