Mountainbiking

Explore the valley on two wheels

Mountainbiking is without a doubt one of the best ways to make the most of your time with us in the beautiful Zillertal Valley. All in all the region has 800 kilometres of marked trails, with many starting outside the Hotel Eden. The range of destinations is as diverse as the valley itself: lush meadows, thick forests, high summits and crystal-clear mountain lakes. Or why not try something new and take on some of the tricky singletrail descents for downhill mountainbikers?

Several cable cars in the valley give riders the option of completing part of the ascent by lift – free of charge for holders of the Zillertal Activcard! There are also guided rides to some of the best spots in the valley, while those who like to get digital on the trails can download the GPS data for many rides onto a bike computer to help with navigation.

Why not give your bike a holiday and hire one of the state-of-the-art mountainbikes from the rental shops in the valley? And when you get back home to the Hotel Eden there is no better place to relax than in our own Garden of Eden.

Via Ferrata Climbing

Scale the heights in the Zillertal Valley

Via ferrata are climbing routes in the mountains with a steel rope anchored to the rockface and a number of metal handholds and footholds. They combine the thrill of rock climbing with a high level of safety and are therefore very popular with families. In the Zillertal Valley we have many via ferrata catering for climbers of all abilities. They are rated from A (easy) to E (very difficult).

As well as the adrenaline kick of being high up in the mountains, these climbing routes are a great way to enjoy some spectacular views and take a few memorable photos to show off to friends and family back home.

We have put together an overview of some of the most popular via ferrata climbing routes in the valley.
