Culture and history
Sports and activities
So what's it like?
Mayrhofen, one of Tirol's prettiest and liveliest resorts, is framed by the awe-inspiring scenery of the majestic Zillertaler Alps. Here you'll find easy access to superb activities and walking - join our walking escort for 2 free guided walks per week. The village centre boasts rustic bars and relaxed and inviting pavement cafés line the streets. Summer months bring festivals of folk-singing and dancing, as well as colourful processions and brass-band concerts, keeping the wealth of local traditions alive.
Relax and discover
Local culture: In the Ziller Valley farming is still important in local life. Festivals such as 'Sonnwendfeuer' (June) and 'Almabtrieb' (Sept/Oct) are still celebrated and 'Dorffest' are usually a great opportunity to see and sample the meats, cheeses and schnapps on offer at a farmer's market.
Adventure sports: The imposing mountains around Mayrhofen are a climbers paradise from beginners to physically demanding overhangs of the extreme cliffs. Try out canyoning, river rafting, and for those of you with a head for heights, swinging from the tree tops at the 'Go Ape' course.
Walking: There are over 200km of walking routes in the Ziller Valley including many in the heart of the stunning 390km² Zillertal Alps Nature Park. For serious hikers, routes in the valley can be as challenging as you'd like. If you want something a bit more easy going try taking one of the summer lifts to give access to the 'panorama trails' at 2000m- great views at a minimum effort.
Evening atmosphere: Enjoy the understated but diverse nightlife with live music from Tirolean folk music to modern acoustic, salsa and rock performances.

Twin centre suggestion
Why not try a Twin Centre combining 7 days in Mayrhofen, at the Spa Hotel Strass, with its excellent range of facilities, with 7 days in the beautiful resort of Zell am See? A great choice would be the Hotel Fischerwirt.
Transfer to your second centre is usually by coach or minibus and may be via the airport. Call us to book.
