Our personal hiking tips

LENZup, hike and climb to Gasthaus Zimmereben

Walk downhill from your exclusive home from home in Lenzup, cross the street, and in no time at all you will be alongside the rushing waters of the Zemmbach River, which you should follow downstream until the Stillupbach and Ziller River converge. Refreshed, walk to the Ziller Bridge, which you should cross and head from Kreuzlau to the Mariensteig Trail, which leads pleasure hikers along a pleasantly meandering path up to Gasthof Zimmereben. Fancy more of a sporting challenge? Well climb up the Huterlanersteig via ferrate, or one of the other three via ferrate climbing routes, the Huterlaner, Pfeilspitzwand or Zimmereben to the quaint mountain inn with traditional ambience and good old home-style cooking.

Ahorn - Edelhütte

Either walk or catch the village bus to the Ahornbahn cable car, which whisks you up to the mountain station at 1,978 m above sea level. Follow trail no. 42 a in the direction of Filzenkogel.  With the surrounding alpine world as your mighty backdrop, walk below the Filzen Ridge to the idyllically situated Edelhütte.  

After a refreshing break, it is time to tackle the steep ascent to the majestic Ahorn Peak - and summit victory at 2,970 m above sea level!
