Stummerberg is a small settlement perched high up on a mountainside in the middle of the Zillertal Valley. It lies on the banks of the Märzenbach stream and enjoys sunshine well into the evenings.
Here, high above the valley floor and away from the main road running the length of the valley, visitors can enjoy absolute peace and quiet. This hamlet is home to around 850 residents living on both sides of the Märzenbach river, which winds its way through the Märzengrund, a narrow forest valley leading up to the lush alpine meadows at Gmünd. There are a number of hiking trails starting in Stummerberg and leading along the stream and up to the surrounding mountain peaks. Mountain bikers and rock climbers will also find plenty to explore. Neighbouring Aschau has a large indoor climbing centre, the Kletterzentrum Zillertal, offering rock climbing routes for all abilities as well as a separate boulder area. The Zillertal Cycle Path runs along the valley floor, while the Badewelt Stumm is the ideal place to cool off in summer. In winter it is the opposite side of the valley which draws skiers and snowboarders. A cable car leaving from Kaltenbach gives direct access to the popular ski resort of Hochfügen-Hochzillertal.
