Altitude: 660 m a.s.l.
Hart is located on the eastern riverbank of the Ziller in the anterior Zillertal valley. The village is made up of the hamlets Niederhart, Helfenstein, Haselbach and Kohlstatt in the valley, the mountain farms Holdernach and the village Hart. Its name means "forest dwindled by clearing" - it's Old High German - and refers to the importance of charcoal production in the past.
In this part of Tyrol, nature presents itself at its best on two theme paths, which run parallel to each other. The Bird Eductional Trail shows you in a 2.5-hour hike 44 local bird species thanks to the information provided on large information panels. The second one is the Nature Trail with its 15 stations - both start in the locality of Haslbach and lead also past the Schleier Waterfall in Hart, the highest waterfall of the Zillertal valley with an impressive drop height of 91 metres.
In winter, Hart im Zillertal impresses with its vicinity to the two skiing areas located in the anterior part of the Zillertal valley. The comfortable Spieljochbahn Skiing Area at 2,100 m a.s.l. and the Hochfügen Ski Region, one of Europe's best freeriding areas, include a total of more than 100 km of ski slopes. To complete the offer of outdoor activities, you can also enjoy cycling along the Zillertal Cycle Route, inline skating, paragliding, and playing tennis and miniature golf.
