Ebbs

Ebbs is located at the foot of the Zahmer Kaiser mountain and is known beyond borders for its foal farm.

Altitude: 475 m asl

With its 5,000 inhabitants, Ebbs is the largest village of Tyrol. Located at 475 m asl, it is also the lowest located all over Tyrol, in other words Ebbs is a holiday resort that loves to establish superlatives. The emblem of the village depicts a horse’s head under a rafter, pointing at the long tradition of horse breeding in the village. The name Ebbs comes from the terms “ad Episas”, deriving from the Celtic horse goddess Epona.

Boredom, what’s that? Famous all over is the foal farm Ebbs, comprising the largest Haflinger horse breed of Europe. This farm and the respective museum can of course been visited, but that’s far from being all. Thousands of visitors are also attracted by the Haflinger horse world exhibitions taking place on a regular basis. Further animals can be watched in the Rarity Zoo Ebbs, the only zoo of Tyrol offering such a large number of exotic animals, including maned wolfs, ring-tailed lemurs, flamingos and coati, born in human custody. Moreover since 2008 this zoo is an animal park of the category A, complying with the Austrian animal protection act. Also the so-called “Ebbser Gartenschau”, which is a horticultural show, is worth to be visited and it can be found at the FlowerWorld Hödnerhof. For those who love culture, however, there is no way around the 500-year old S. Nikolaus chapel and the parish church, which is considered to be the “Baroque dome of the Tiroler Unterland area”!

The beautiful mountains of the Wilder Kaiser mountain chain invite you to go climbing, mountaineering and cycling in summer. Five golf courses in the environs as well as a 30 km long inline skating track make your holidays even more adventurous. In winter, however, you can choose from two skiing areas: the comfy and family-friendly Zahmer Kaiser skiing area with 15 km of ski slopes or the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental, offering 280 km of well-groomed slopes. About 50 km of cross-country trails as well as the Ice Arena of the Fun Arena “Hallo Du” complete the already vast offer. We just have to wish you great fun!

Our recommendation: the Fun Arena “Hallo Du” offers something for every taste: a huge sauna area, an outdoor adventure pool with funpark, a roofed ice rink, a restaurant, a bowling alley and much more.
