Fügenberg, including a surface of 58.5 sqkm, is the largest locality of the Zillertal valley and is located above Fügen.
Altitude: 681 m asl
The holiday resort and its component localities Fügenberg, Pankrazberg and the hotel village of Hochfügen is spread on the slopes above Fügen and extends to 2,000 m asl. Also two narrow valleys in the Tux pre-Alps, which are the Öxltal valley with the Kaunzalm pasture and the Finsingtal valley including the hotel village of Hochfügen, are part of the municipal area. The Hochfügen road connects the single localities. Highest elevations are the Spieljoch and Kellerjoch passes as well as the Marchkopf and Gilfert mountains. For centuries at Fügenberg people searched for mineral resources such as iron ore and many chapels in the surroundings were constructed by miners…
Thanks to its unique position, Fügenberg is a perfect starting point for hikes and mountain tours in the surroundings, such as on the 2,506 m high Gilfert or the 2,762 m high Rastkogel. Also several alpine pastures are included in the municipal area, such as the Pfundsalm pasture, representing the head of the Finsingtal valley, the Geolsalm (1,733 m asl), Schellenbergalm (1,291 m asl) and Lumpereralm (1,392 m asl) pastures, to mention only some of these wonderful meadows. The area of Schwarz-Jenbach-Fügen-Hochfügen is characterised by the highest density of mountain bike trails of Tyrol. So those who love this sports can really look forward to their holidays! In the neighbouring village of Fügen there are on the one hand the “Erlebnistherme Zillertal” offering a sauna landscape with open-air pools and water slides, and on the other hand the museum of local history in the parish estate, ideal for those who love culture.
In winter Fügen and Fügenberg come forward with even two skiing areas, Fügen-Spieljoch and Hochfügen, able to satisfy every single need of those who love skiing. So right at the doorstep, there is a real paradise for skiers and snowboarders: the Spieljochbahn skiing area offers 21 km of ski slopes, 8 lift facilities and is particularly popular with families and those who would like to spend comfortable skiing holidays. The Hochfügen ski region offers 36 lift facilities and 88 km of well-groomed slopes. It is one of the ten most snow-sure skiing areas of the Alps and also one of the ten world’s best skiing areas!
Our recommendation: worth to be visited is the St. Pankraz parish church, constructed from 1494 to 1497 in Gothic style, as well as the show gallery in the Öxtal valley, which has been inaugurated in 1999 at an altitude of 1,783 m asl.
