Summer Holidays in Tyrol

Hiking, mountainbiking, golf

Surrounded by spectacular mountains and home to more than 1,000 km of hiking trails, the Zillertal Valley is a haven for walkers and hikers. Those who enjoy exploring the landscape on two wheels will also find plenty of cycle paths and mountainbike routes. The Zillertaler Höhenstraße is one of the top destinations in Tyrol for roadbike enthusiasts.

In the Zillertal Valley there are also plenty of highlights for those who like to scale the heights! Rock climbing, via ferrata and bouldering areas challenge even the most experienced of climbers. And, last but by no means least, there are many other outdoor activities and attractions such as the summer toboggan run, the Arena Skyliner, the Zillertalbahn nostalgic railway and the HolzErlebnisWelt wood museum and adventure centre.

Mountains, views and strong legs


What goes up must come down! That is very much the principle in mountainbiking, where thrilling descents are the reward for all that hard work. The Zillertal Arena has a large network of signposted mountainbike trails for all fitness levels.

With its majestic scenery and crystal-clear lakes ideal for a refreshing dip in summer, the Zillertal Valley really is an eldorado for cyclists – from experienced mountainbikers to families with children.

At the ZapfenHof we have 40 bicycles available for hire as well as children's bikes and multi-rider family bikes. What are you waiting for? Time to get out and explore!

There is no better place for a relaxing round of golf than the spectacular mountains of the Zillertal Valley.

Our region is one of the best golf destinations in the Alps and is home to a number of outstanding courses with truly breathtaking backdrops.

Among the most popular is the 18-hole golf course in Zillertal Uderns, while the Golf- und Landclub Achensee in Pertisau gives golfers the chance of a hole in one they will never forget.
