Mayrhofen


The market town of Mayrhofen at the end of the Zillertal Valley brings together the energy and qualities which characterise this lush mountain valley, offering visitors a combination of activities and relaxation.

It is said that people from the Zillertal Valley are a little different – they are tough and adaptable, clever and business-minded, and at the same time creative and famed for their musical talent. Therefore, it will come as no surprise that this region is just as well known for its mountaineers as it is for its musicians. Indeed, for many people the Zillertal Valley is the most typical valley in Tirol – despite (or maybe because of) its unusually wide valley floor and gently sloping mountains. The focal point towards the end of the valley is Mayrhofen, where all of these various human and natural characteristics come together.

Mayrhofen is a market town and proud of it. Its people are busy yet jovial, and guests will appreciate the excellent infrastructure in both summer and winter. Children and teenagers looking for action on the slopes should head for the Vans Penken Park or the Funslope Ahorn, while rock climbers and ice climbers can follow in the footsteps of famous extreme mountaineer Peter Habeler. Mayrhofen is also home to Austria’s steepest ski piste, the appropriately named “Harakiri”, with gradients of up to 78%. Those looking for something a little more relaxing can embark on a hike in summer or a snowshoe adventure through the glistening snowy landscape in winter. Mayrhofen really does have something for everyone!
