The spirit of the Alps: The High Mountain Nature Conservation Park Zillertal Alps

Summer in Zillertal is a picturesque play of colours: The radiant blue of the sky, the vibrant green of the forest, the sheer grey of the rocks and the eternal white of the glaciers. In the midst of it all lies the charming alpine village of Mayrhofen, with nature right on the doorstep: The High Mountain Nature Conservation Park Zillertal Alps. A huge nature reserve, lovingly maintained and preserved by many partners in the region. The Alpine Hideaway ZILLERTALERHOF is one of its facilitators.

Whether you are hiking, mountain biking or riding a race bike: Every day there’s something new to discover in and around Mayrhofen. For example: Outdoor adventures in Stilluptal Valley (17 km) – perfect for a breathtaking mountain bike tour to the historic Stillup Reservoir (since 1966) at 1116 metres above sea level. Or maybe something a little more challenging: in the traditional region of Tuxertal Valley, you can admire the huge glaciers of the Frozen Wall (3288 m) at the Olperer (3476 m). High alpine action junkies will also get their fill at Zemmgrund, where the stony Berlin Hut at the far end of the valley has defied the capricious alpine weather since 1879 – at 2042 metres above sea level.

Hiking tips in the Zillertal

532 kilometres of well-developed hiking trails, thousands of metres of altitude – a true alpine experience. Zillertal mountaineering legend Peter Habeler couldn’t agree more: For him, the Zillertal peaks are the most beautiful in the world. Climbing them is a wonderful experience, sometimes even eased by a nearby cable car service. Examples? The demanding climb to the Hoarbergkarspitze (2278 m) can be done all year round from Mayrhofen, even by cable car if need be, while the four eternally snow-capped three-thousand-metre peaks in the south (Hochfeiler – 3509 m, Großer Möseler – 3480 m, Schwarzenstein – 3369 m and Großer Löffler – 3378 m) are only accessible on foot. It’s best to tackle the attempt with the support of a professional mountain guide – at the ZILLERTALERHOF we are always happy to help you organise one.

You can learn a lot about life in the Alps on the “Bergmähderweg” hike. Through the Zillergrund gorge and blooming alpine meadows to the Kolmhaus (tip:  try a fresh buttermilk on the sun deck) – if you happen to be visiting in midsummer, you can witness the ancient tradition of “Bergmahd” first-hand (mowing with a scythe).

A highlight for travelling architects and lovers of straight lines and shapes: On a rock overhang to the east of the reservoir at Penkenjoch, Swiss star architect Mario Botta designed an iconic granite chapel at an altitude of 2087 metres (inspired by the form of a polished gem) – a true jewel of the Alps.

Mountain biking around Mayrhofen

Two wheels instead of hiking boots? The mountains in the Zillertal are a paradise for mountain- and downhill bikers.

As a certified Tyrol Bike Hotel the ZILLERTALERHOF can alternatively also provide modern e-bikes – so you can break a spontaneous sweat in the Zillertal mountains if you want to.

The Zillertal on a rainy day

Even on a rainy day, the Zillertal has plenty to offer: Visit the hands-on Erlebnissennerei Zillertal dairy for fascinating insights into the ancient cheese-making secrets of our mountain farmers, float weightlessly in relaxing thermal water at the Zillertal Erlebnistherme or head out on a small road trip and discover the nearby Tyrolean state capital of Innsbruck or the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens.

Zillertal Aktivcard: Yes to All with many benefits

If you really want to enjoy your holiday in the mountains to the fullest, there is a lot to discover. Some hiking trails can be easily cut short by using the ten Zillertal summer cable cars. Upon your effortless arrival at the top, you can experience the crystal-clear mountain lakes, white glaciers, sky-high peaks and 150 huts in between, where you can enjoy regional delicacies. Down below in the valley you can also go horseback riding, swimming, play golf, stroll through the forest and meadows or spend some time in the shade at the high-rope climbing garden. Looking for something other than hiking and mountain biking? How about: Whitewater rafting, Canyoning or one of the 26 different climbing opportunities?
