Hiking & Climbing

Hundreds of kilometres of well-maintained hiking routes offer the perfect opportunity to enjoy the natural landscapes of Zillertal. While activities undertaken in the tributary valleys of Mayrhofen are of the more leisurely kind, alpine pros can feed their thirst for adventure on hundreds of mountain peaks in every grade of difficulty. Everything can be found here, ranging from gentle walks, to easy hikes, hut to hut tours and alpine adventures.

The mountain terminals of Mayrhofner Bergbahnen cable car systems (Mounts Penken and Ahorn) are the starting point of a veritable plethora of mountain tours and high-altitude hikes. Here, in an alpine world dominated by flora and fauna, you can find rare animal species as well as brightly coloured alpine flowers such as gentian and arnica, and even the occasional orchid.

In addition to popular sport climbing & bouldering areas, enthusiastic climbers will enjoy the facilities offered by Zillertal Climbing Centre, especially in bad weather. Several via Ferrate climbing routes in the surrounding area also offer inexperienced climbers the opportunity to acquire a taste for "climbing air".
