Excursions in the Zillertal

Sights and excursions in Tirol

Spannagel Caves

Awaken your inquiring mind and discover the fascinating natural wonders of the Spannagel cave system! Located on the Hintertux Glacier, you will find the entrance to Tyrol’s largest natural cave at the Spannagelhaus, only 10 minutes from the cable car mountain station (section 2).

Eagle’s Stage on Ahorn

After an ascent to 2.000 m with the Ahornbahn cabe car, you will experience eagles, falcons, buzzards and eagle owls in their natural habitat at Europe’s highest birds of prey sanctuary, whilst learning interesting facts about the aerial antics of these kings of the sky!

Strasser Häusl

The almost 300-year-old farmhouse in Laimach near Hippach takes you on a journey into the past.  Besides offering an insight into rural life of yesteryear, you can also sense the history of the Strasser children in the living room, who inhabited the house in the 19th Century and introduced the Christmas carol, “Silent Night, Holy Night” to the rest of the world with their concert performances.

Zillertal High Road

It is with good reason that the Zillertal High Road is considered to be one of Austria’s most beautiful alpine roads.  The winding panorama road leads you up to 2,020 m above sea level on the western flanks of the valley.  Breathtaking views of the Zillertal and Kitzbühel Alps can be experienced along the approx. 20 km long summit section above the tree line.

Krimml Waterfalls

After crossing the Gerlos Pass, you will arrive at the Krimml Waterfalls, which come crashing down to the depths from a drop height of some 30 metres! Walk on the viewing path to experience this incredible natural spectacle at first hand. The refreshing experience is rounded off with a visit to the “House of Water” with Aqua-Park.

Schwaz Silver Mine

Take an exciting journey into the history of Europe and follow in the footsteps on the silver miners after the 800 m deep entrance to the largest mine of the Middle Ages.  A truly extraordinary underground experience!

Bathing fun & lots of action

LENZup Water Fun

Have a splash or just indulge in the essential pleasures of rest and relaxation in the vibrant Erlebnisbad Mayrhofen adventure pool, with outdoor and indoor swimming pool, slides and spa.  We recommend exploring the tributary valleys of Zillertal on hot summer days, where the Schlegeis, Stillupp, Zillergründl and Durlassboden reservoirs merge gracefully into the landscape and mountain streams, bubbling waterfalls and alpine springs provide invigorating refreshment.

LENZup Action

Mini-golf, beach volleyball, soccer, tennis, skating in the Mtown Bowl, rafting on the Ziller, canyoning, paragliding and so much more - your holiday resort Mayrhofen awaits with exciting activities to suit every taste! The Leisure Trail on Mount Ahorn takes you not only to Lake Ahorn, but to an exciting mountain playground and the show farm at Filzenalm.

The area surrounding the Rosenalmbahn cable car in Zell am Ziller opens up to reveal action-packed amenities for you and your children.  Fichtenschloss Spruce Castle at the cable car mountain terminal is equipped with diverse play areas and the Arena Coaster is probably the most entertaining roller coaster in the Alps.

Discover Murmelland (Marmot Country) with its playground and petting zoo on the Zillertal High Road.  Hubertus Wild Animal Trail Hochzillertal begins not far from here, where you and your children can get better acquainted with the world of local alpine animals.
