Zellberg

Zellberg and Zellbergeben make up the municipality of Zellberg in the rear Zillertal valley, extending up to the alpine pastures.

Atitude: 575 m a.s.l.

Zellberg extends to the highest located farm at 1,100 m a.s.l. Zellbergeben is located at the bottom of the valley and is the administrative seat of the municipality, while Zellberg comprises the farms at the slopes. On the municipal coat of arms there's also a golden heart with a crown as symbol for the church of Zellberg, one of the few churches in Tyrol dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The mighty Zillertal Arena is a hiking area in summer, which turns into a skiing area with 150 km of slopes in all levels of difficulty in winter. An interesting trail combines culture and outdoor activities: The Wood Trail takes you in about 2 hours from Zellberg to the Sacred Heart Chapel, the oldest one of Zellberg, and further on the Eugene Promenade to the Schulhaus tavern. Along this path you can learn more about the forest and its functions, e.g. by means of a journal of a forester.

Also mountain bikers are going to feel at ease, as there are 325 km of routes snaking in the Zillertal Arena. The offer is completed by single trails, several bike rentals and mountain huts. The cable cars take up your bike to 1,800 m a.s.l. By the way: There is a famous folk music group coming from Zellberg, which are the "Zellberg Buam". Visit the "Zellberg Stüberl" tavern along the Zillertal High Road, the home of the three brothers Gerhard, Herbert and Werner.
