Surrounded by the Tuxer, Kitzbühel and Zillertal Alps, Ramsau is a small municipality in the heart of the Zillertal Valley and is home to 1,600 inhabitants.
Its position on the wide valley floor makes it an excellent starting point for many different activities, including hiking and mountain biking. The Ramsberglift transports visitors from the village up to the Sonnalm hut, from where they can walk past the Kotahornhütte hut up to the Gerlossteinalm, a cosy inn overlooking the valley. In winter there is a direct connection between the village and the small Gerlosstein ski resort. Those in search of more action on the slopes can travel to the nearby Zillertal Arena or the resort of Mayrhofen with its famous Vans Penken Park and “White Lounge” igloo village. Other popular excursions include a nostalgic railway ride on the Zillertalbahn, which sometimes still operates steam-driven locomotives and stops twice in Ramsau.
