When the sun doesn't shine in Zillertal

There is no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.

It may seem hard to believe, but the sun does not always shine on the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region. Rainy weather is not something that brings joy to the heart of every holidaymaker, so to make sure that moods stay bouyant, we have put a few tips together on how to spend a few interesting days in the Zillertal Valley. How about a visit to the ErlebnisSennerei Dairy, a peak behind the scenes of creating hydro-electric power, a guided cable car tour or a ride with the nostalgic steam train? Even a walk in the rain can bring diversity to days when the sun doesn't shine.

We recommend use of public transport for stress-free journeys to the various day-trip destinations (most are FREE with the Zillertal Activcard).
