A walker´s paradise! South of Mayrhofen the journey begins on the Schlegeis Alpine Road, up into the midst of the Zillertal Alps and the 131 metre high, double curved, Schlegeis Dam Wall.
A masterpiece of technical engineering construction that can be inspected from the inside on regular tours of the dam wall. Not only that, the beautiful pine forests, sparkling waters of the Schlegeis Reservoir and eternal ice of the glacier will simply take your breath away. The many walking paths and hiking trails that start at the reservoir are particularly popular.
