Hiking in Zillertal Valley

Hikers in the Zillertal Valley are spoilt for choice. The region offers numerous paths and trails catering for all ages and fitness levels. While the valley floor is home to rich fauna and flora, the Zillertal Alps has some of the highest peaks in Tirol.

Lush meadows, craggy mountains, shimmering glaciers and 3,000-metre peaks make the Zillertal Valley a picture-perfect region for walkers and hikers. It is located between the western Kitzbühel Alps and the Tux Alps. To the south rise the mighty peaks of the Zillertal Alps giving way to the Main Alpine Ridge. It is here that the most challenging hikes can be found, including several multi-day treks in the Zillertal Alps Nature Park. Advanced and expert hikers will also enjoy the Berlin High Trail and the Peter Habeler Loop. Both these multi-stage routes take adventurers above the magical 3,000-metre mark. En route there are plenty of stunning views of the glacier-capped mountains to enjoy. The Tux Alps has several cable cars such as the Spieljochbahn in Fügen and the Penkenbahn in Mayrhofen. In the Kitzbühel Alps there is the Rosenalmbahn in Zell am Ziller giving quick and easy access to the high mountains.
