Hikes & Tips

Useful information & popular routes

The Zillertal Valley is one of the few regions where visitors can hike 365 days a year in the valley, at the treeline and over the peaks. Hotel owner Alexander leads several guided tours a week. Or why not head out on your own and explore the fascinating mountains of the Zillertal Valley with friends and family? We have put together a few useful tips for hiking in the mountains as well as a list of our favourite hikes in the region. Please feel free to ask a member of staff if you want to know more about planning hikes. We will be happy to help.
