Summer in Mayrhofen - a hiker's paradise
 

Breathe in the clear, healthy mountain air, explore the magnificent natural backdrop one piece at a time and refresh yourself with pure mountain spring water ... this is what relaxation in Mayrhofen is all about. For over 150 years Mayrhofen's unique mountain backdrop has been attracting hikers from all over the world. The resort stands at the head of the Ziller valley, from where four gorge-like upland valleys (known as Grunde) fan out: the Zillergrund, the Stillupptal, the Zemmgrund and the Tuxertal - the first three are part of the protected "Zillertaler Hauptkamm" recreation area. Acquaint yourself with the natural beauty of the 3,000 meter-high Zllertal Alps via the 200 kilometers of maintained and signposted footpaths. Mountain bike, paraglider, kayak, raft or horseback are some of he other ways of getting around on this fascinating voyage of discovery.

Mayrhofen - the resort
Mayrhofen sits at an altitude of 630 meters and is situated at the gateway to the Ziller valley alps, where the Ziller valley divides into its four side valleys; the Zillergrund, Stilluptal, Zemmgrund and Tuxertal. It's reputation is as one of the most traditional resorts in the Tyrol.



The hiking
For over a century Mayrhofen has been well known as the ideal starting point for rambles and climbing tours among the Ziller Valley Alps and can be justifiably called "a hiker's paradise". The resort has many mountain trails connecting to a network of over 200 km of well-marked and well-kept paths. Two cable cars make the ascent easier and the high alpine views accessible to the less energetic. The new hiking ticket, the "Z-Ticket" is valid on all lifts of the Ziller Valley and by choice most of the transport resources. Further enjoyment is guaranteed by the inclusion of swimming pools in this pass. A free service of the Mayrhofen Tourist Association is its programme of guided walks into the surrounding Alps.

Worth seeing is the Ziller Valley Trust Park "Zillertaler Hauptkamm". This protected area of 372 square km was officially designated a Trust area by the Tirolean government in 1992. In planning a but to but tour over several days it would be wise to cast an eye over the relief map in the Europahaus.
