The idyllic village of Mayrhofen is located in the green centre of the Zillertal. Beyond its borders, it enjoys great popularity among guests of all ages. Here, our community of almost 4,000 inhabitants in the Austrian province of Tyrol is known in particular as an Eldorado for nature-loving lovers of activities: winter sports enthusiasts prefer to explore the diversity of the area on skis, while hikers tap into the regional peculiarities on foot. Cyclists and mountain bikers will also enjoy a wide choice of beautiful routes.
Regardless of the chosen activity, there are many things to discover, from picturesque landscapes to imposing mountain worlds to fascinating insights into local traditions.
The awakening of our Alpine region in the warm season invites you to enjoy unique views. These can be taken in wonderfully at impressive altitudes. If you would like to explore the local mountain worlds, we recommend taking a look at our local railway trio, which includes the Penkenbahn, the Zillertalbahn and the Ahornbahn. These will comfortably take you from their respective base stations to loftier heights. During the ride, you will enjoy unique panoramas before setting foot in the summery natural world of Mayrhofen:
The fact that the mountain peaks of the Zillertal are among the most beautiful in the world is no secret among connoisseurs. So the lively activity levels on our well-developed network of paths are no surprise. Since the route levels can be checked in advance, hiking trips for newcomers and children are planned in no time. The same applies to active vacationers who travel with their four-legged friends. For safety reasons, however, it makes sense to put the dog in a leash, depending on the area.
Although the heart of the Alps season captivates all senses, the summer months here impress with their incomparable charm. Besides the constantly clement weather, this is especially thanks to nature being in full bloom. Hikes in our region will take you through lush green forests and lively birdsong at this time of year, accompanied by the whisper of gentle summer winds. If you are looking for refreshment, sprinkling mountain rivers will gladly provide you with this. A relaxing snack in the shade of majestic treetops will give you restful moments and great joy. Make sure to have fitting hiking equipment with superior comfort, to maintain fond memories of every excursion.
If you love the slopes, Mayrhofen is the best place for you. 136 kilometers of slopes and 57 lifts are waiting for die-hard skiers and those who want to become one.
