Vertical to the face
Climbing is and remains an incredibly special experience.
You will find bizarre rock formations and steep rock faces for climbing & bouldering in the Zillertal Alps Nature Park, that promise pure excitement for climbing enthusiasts. Numerous via Ferrate & climbing routes in the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region (for beginners, advanced & pros) provide you with just the right challenge.
Climbing enthusiasts can look forward to exploring the "Ewigen Jagdgründe" (Eternal Hunting Grounds), with two approx. 60 m-high granite rocks that jut out of the ground close to the Gasthof Breitlahner in Zemmgrund. These climbing grounds, with a difficulty of 4-10, are very safe and amongst the finest to be found in Europe. Some of the best longer routes for sports climbers are also located around Ginzling, where some of the largest bouldering areas are tucked away.
You will find two climbing areas graded 4 - 8+ on Mount Penken as well as a via Ferrata route where beginners can get a taste of the climbing spirit. Equipment can be borrowed free of charge from the funsport station next to the Penken Kombibahn.
Climbing boulders and rock faces without the use of ropes or harnesses is enjoying growing popularity in the Zillertal Valley.

The Boulderhalle in the Mayrhofen-Hippach region offers fun climbing whatever the weather.
Zillertal climbing routes
Kitted out with the right climbing gear (helmet, chest and lap belt with karabiners, safety ropes and gloves), you’re ready to set off on the climbing route.
The route leads up, sometimes steep, then on ladders or rungs, then along the cable, always double secured so that noone falls. The entire climb is classified in various levels of difficulty from von A (very easy) to E (extremely difficult, challenging and tiring).
