When the sun shines and it slowly warms up, nature in the Zillertal comes to life more and more. Especially in the impressiveHigh mountain nature park of the Zillertal Alps, where you will find about 1,300 plant and 9,000 animal species in the 422 km2 of untouched nature. It is therefore not surprising that many hiking and cycling enthusiasts like to go out in the Zillertal. With 1,400 hiking trails, 72 routes to impressive mountain giants above 3,000 m, 150 mountain huts and 1,300 km of cycling pleasure, sporty connoisseurs are definitely in the right place here.

Also typical of the Zillertal is the cosiness, the traditions in music, costumes and crafts and the hospitality. This is reflected in all four holiday regions of Fügen-Kaltenbach, Zell-Gerlos, Mayrhofen-Hippach and Tux-Finkenberg. Regions you use with theZillertaler Activcardcan explore extensively with the whole family. For example, you get on the cable cars and public transport for free. In addition, you benefit from many discounts on all kinds of trips in the mountains. Whatever makes your heart beat faster - culinary delights, golf between the three-thousanders, throwing snowballs on the glacier or that exciting Klettersteig - the Zillertal makes holiday dreams come true.

That is why you choose the Zillertal this summer
