70 stations among the treetops were realised at the largest high-rope course of the Zillertal valley.

A summer holiday in the Zillertal can ideally be combined with a visit to the largest high rope course of the valley - the one in Gerlos. It was recently expanded, and offers now 70 adventurous stations between 10 and 15 meters above the forest floor, divided into 15 Flying Foxes, 10 Kids Lines, and 55 other tests of courage. They were realised with ropes, tree trunks and wire ropes.
The Gerlos high rope course (Hochseilgarten Gerlos) has also been designed as an obstacle course. First you are secured with the Smart Belay Technology which makes an accidental complete unhooking of the snap hooks basically impossible. And then the adventure park awaits you for a 2-hour adventure which leads you from one station to the next. A special course with 10 children-friendly stations, however, was inaugurated for the little ones from 105 cm body height. So they can test their agility skills in a height between 2 and 3 metres.
You can leave your car at the Tennis Center Gerlos-Gmünd car park. But the village offers even more for adventurers: the alpine fixed-rope route Gerlossteinwand, a 12 m high climbing tower right in the centre of Gerlos, and the Arena Skyliner, a new flying element in the Gerlosstein area.
The Gerlos high rope course will reopen in mid-May 2023 for the summer season.
