Rohrberg is a village in the heart of the Zillertal Valley comprising several small settlements with a total of 550 inhabitants. Here, on the western slopes of the Karspitze (2,264m), visitors have fantastic views overlooking the village of Zell am Zille and can also access the Zillertal Arena.
A hub of gold mining from the 16th until the 19th century, Rohrberg is today home to a hydroelectric plant generating green energy. In the 19th century, after the golden age of mining had come to an end, the Munich-based opera singer Felix Kraus turned what had been the miners’ house into a villa. Today this building is home to the Apparthotel Gallahaus. Rohrberg has been shaped over the years by the Zillertal Arena, a ski resort in winter and hiking area in summer. Sections of the Zillertal Arena lie within the municipal territory of Rohrberg, from which the Karspitzbahn cable car transports guests up to the nearby ski slopes and hiking trails. Thrill-seekers can have a go on the Arena Coaster, a 1.5 km long summer toboggan run, or can test their balance and nerve in one of the high rope adventure parks in the neighbouring villages. Also well worth a visit are the Krimmler Wasserfälle waterfalls, which are among the highest in Europe.
