In summer, hiking in Zillertal is top of the list. The extensive network of trails offers tours covering all levels of difficulty and altitudes. From leisurely strolls in the valley, family-friendly themed trails to high alpine summit climbs - everything is possible in the Zillertal Alps.
The imposing landscape is also perfect for mountain biking, e-biking, climbing and more. In addition, exciting attractions await you everywhere in Zillertal, first and foremost the Hintertux Glacier, Austria's only year-round skiing area.
Experience the Mountains
Relaxing hikes for the whole family, whether in the valley along the River Ziller, by cable car towards the summit or as a sports activity. There are many possibilities for every taste and age group.
Culture and Traditions
Driving cattle down into the valley in autumn - known as the 'Almabtrieb' - is a living Zillertal tradition and a very special experience for guests.
Active and Sporty

Cycle Tours & Mountain Biking
A wide range of tours along the flat valley or up to the summit.
Zillertal Railway - Stress-free travel

Walking Holidays in Zillertal
Hiking is probably the most popular holiday and leisure activity in summer in our alpine landscape. Enjoy the picturesque alpine meadows in bloom, raging waterfalls, rushing mountain streams, traditional alpine farms, welcoming places for shelter and refreshments, and adventurous gorges - as well as the indescribable views of the mountains and alpine valleys.
Our guests can enjoy the scenery of the Upper Zillertal on a wonderful, well-developed network of hiking trails with total length of over 200 kilometres. The summit stations of the Penken, Ahorn and Zillertal Arena cable cars are also popular, nearby starting points for numerous mountain tours and high-altitude hikes.

Cycling Holidays in Zillertal
This is the Zillertal as only a few know it: sleepy valleys with perfect bike trails along deserted lakes and playful mountain streams.
On the romantic trails in the side valleys around Mayrhofen, even less athletic mountain cyclists will be happy because there are cosy mountain lodges awaiting you at the end of each tour.
Climbing in Zillertal
It's hardly surprising that Zillertal and in particular the town of Mayrhofen, with its mountaineering village of Ginzling and numerous three-thousand-metre peaks, made a name for itself as a climbing destination very early on.
Via ferratas - are now the new trend in mountain sports that also allow hikers, with appropriate equipment and depending on the level of difficulty, to try out their skills in the world of vertical ascents.
