It's all about thrilling fun on Action Mount Penken. At the Funsportstation at 2,000 metres above sea level, the Action Mountain certainly lives up to its name: whether rolling over the water in the air-filled Funballz, scrambling skyward on the „Knorren“ via Ferrate climbing route or enjoying a real go-kart feeling with the brand new mountain carts. Thrilling mountain experiences can be enjoyed by the whole family in the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region!

Enjoying sunrise breakfast at Freiraum is most certainly an unforgettable holiday experience!
