Mayrhofen

The Zillertal Adventure Dairy in Mayrhofen tells about the local milk and cheese specialities, which can be tasted after the visit.

Altitude: 630 m a.s.l.

In the rear Zillertal valley, there is one of the largest municipalities of Tyrol, which is Mayrhofen with its widely spread hamlets. The village is surrounded by impressive mountain massifs such as Mt. Grosser Löffler, which represents the border to the Valle Aurina valley in South Tyrol in Italy. Not only the numerous hiking paths, but also a stage of the Tyrol Mountain Bike Safari and some theme parks are perfect to explore this great scenery.

The Ahorn and Penken mountains invite to Funballz and flight demonstrations. As its name implies, the Action Mountain Penken is the place for adventures: From the Funsport Station, you can explore the surrounding landscape with Mountain Scooters, and have fun on the small pond with the Funballz. The Leisure Mountain Ahorn, however, is home to birds of prey. The Ahorn Eagle's Stage at more than 2,000 m a.s.l. is the highest located bird of prey station in all of Europe.

In winter, the valley is covered by snow and thus perfectly suitable for winter sports. Out of the pool of the five skiing areas, including the one of Mayrhofen, the Ski & Glacier World Zillertal 3000 emerged, which today is the one of the largest ski regions in the valley, boasting 202 km of slopes. You need a rush of adrenaline? So you will love the Harakiri, the steepest ski slope throughout Austria, featuring a drop of 78%. In summer, you can overcome it in the Run & Walk Park.
