Hart in Zillertal Valley

The church village of Hart lies near the entrance to the Zillertal Valley, where the mountains rise gently and the valley floor is wide. Its 1,550 residents live in many small farmsteads and hamlets on the lower slopes.

The municipality’s coat of arms shows a coal plant – a reminder of its history producing charcoal for use in nearby smelting furnaces. Traditions and customs continue to play an important role in everyday life, with centuries-old celebrations such as the annual procession of cows down from the high mountain pastures each autumn drawing both locals and visitors. Walkers come to the region to explore the network of well-signposted trails and in particular to see the Schleierwasserfall, at 91m the highest waterfall in the Zillertal Valley and an excellent place to relax on a warm summer’s day. Two educational walking trails lead to the waterfall: the Naturerlebnisweg and the Vogellehrpfad. Mountain bikers are also spoilt for choice in the region around Hart. Further attractions include excursions to the neighbouring villages as well as to the Erlebnistherme Zillertal spa in Fügen and the outdoor adventure park in Kaltenbach. In winter there is a cable car in Fügen which transports skiers and snowboarders onto the slopes of the Spieljoch ski resort with its easy slopes ideal for beginners. Intermediate and advanced skiers will find more challenging pistes in the larger Hochfügen-Hochzillertal resort.
