Situated at the end of the Zillertal Valley, opposite the entrance to the Gerlostal Valley, Zellberg is a small mountainside village at the foot of the Zillertal Arena ski area.
Zellberg is home to 650 residents who live in small settlements dotted across the mountainside. Despite its quiet atmosphere, Zellberg has plenty of outdoor activities on offer. The nearby Zillertal Arena is a top ski resort in winter and a haven for walkers, hikers, mountain bikers and rock climbers in summer. Among the most popular hiking routes are the “Holzweg”, a themed trail all about wood and its various uses, and the path leading up to the Herz-Jesu-Kapelle, the oldest chapel in Zellberg. It is just a short walk to the train station in Zell am Ziller served by the Zillertalbahn, a traditional railway line which sometimes still operates steam engines. A section of the Zillertal High Elevation Road also passes through this municipality. Fans of traditional Tirolean folk music should pay a visit to the Zellberg Stüberl inn, owned by the three members of the popular band “Die Zellberg Buam”.
