The Mayrhofen-Hippach Holiday Region can be found nestled amidst the scenic landscapes of the Zillertal Alps. Thanks to its excellent location and infrastructure, the region is the perfect starting point for all kinds of winter sports activities. Whether snow-sure ski slopes for skiers of every ability, romantic winter hiking trails and cross-country trails, racy snow tubing tours at Ginzling Winter Magic, or delicious cuisine in trendy lifestyle locations - Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region offers the most diverse winter programme by far in the Zillertal Valley.
Two mountains - 1,000 opportunities
With 142 kilometres of slopes Leisure Mount Ahorn and Action Mount Penken offer infinite opportunities to savour winter to the fullest in the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday resort. While Mount Ahorn entices pleasure skiers, beginners and families with its wide and sunny carving slopes, Mount Penken proves irresistible to action lovers with highlights such as the legendary Harakiri slope, Austria’s steepest groomed slope (78% gradient) and Penken Park. The 3S Penkenbahn cable car whisks visitors up to 2,000 metres above sea level in no time at all, as does the Horbergbahn lift and Austria’s largest gondola, the Ahornbahn.
Zillertaler Superskipass - the ultimate ticket for the whole valley
Those looking for never-ending fun on the slopes are well advised to invest in a Zillertaler Superskipass. An incredible 542 kilometres of slopes and 180 ultra-modern lifts are at your disposal with this "all-in-one ticket". Hochzillertal and the Zillertal Arena ski areas are very close to the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region. The Hintertux glacier, Austria’s only year-round skiing area, is also only 20 kilometres away, where winter sports enthusiasts can ski 365 days of the year at altitudes of up to 3,250 metres. The Zillertal Superskipass also includes free travel to and from all ski areas by public transport.
Away from the slopes
When your legs demand a day off, you can indulge in the essential pleasures of rest and relaxation at the Erlebnisbad Mayrhofen Leisure Pool or window shopping down Mayrhofen High Street. Over 60 restaurants, bars and pubs - with traditional fare to exclusive cuisine - offer the perfect setting for every kind of occasion and palate. Those of you who can’t get enough of winter sports can try a spot of ice skating at the ice rink, cross country skiing on the perfectly groomed and partially floodlit cross country ski trails in the Burgschrofen district of Schwendau, or head to the toboggan runs at Gasthof Wiesenhof, the Tristenbachalm in Ginzling, Schwendberg or at Gerlosstein. The fascinating winter landscapes can also be discovered on winter walks along well cleared walkways, or on snowshoe tours. Being out and about in the tranquil, pristine natural landscapes with clear mountain air is balm for the weary body, mind and soul.
Ginzling Winter Magic
The mountaineering village of Ginzling at 1,000 m above sea level is a magnet for hikers, climbers and mountain sports enthusiasts, especially in the summer months. In winter, the village is transformed into a romantic winter wonderland. Ginzling Winter Magic offers an unparalleled winter ambience: cross-country skiing through the snow-covered countryside, thrilling Snowtube rides, or refreshments at Tristenbachalm mountain lodge followed by a spot of night-time tobogganing, as well as the opportunity to simply switch off and savour the natural landscape.
