The Zillergrund

25 kilometres of history combined with alpine air and tradition

The Zillergrund is the most easterly of the four "Inneren Gründe" with a length of approx. 25 km and extends from the Austro-Italian border to Mayrhofen.


The Zillertal Valley originates in the Zillergrund, lying at the foot of the nature Reserve Park of the Zillertal Alps.

The rear of the Zillergrund is called Zillergründl, which is also home to a reservoir that goes under the same name. The valley begins at Heiliggeistjöchl (Holy Ghost Peak) at 2,658 metres above sea level and ends in an easily accessible wooded ravine near Mayrhofen.


Flurnamen Trail
The inhabitants of this valley have also given various names to the environment in which they live. These tell a great deal about the history of the valley and the lives if its people then and now.
