Mayrhofen is located at 630m in the upper Zillertal, a scenic valley in the heart of Tirol and Austria. Mayrhofen is the "flagship" of Austrian alpine tourism. Here there is no conflict between strong traditions and modern life; similarly between traditional farms and luxury hotels, Zillertal specialities and international cuisine, fun and action or relaxing in unspoilt nature.
The striking peaks of the Zillertal Valley and Tux Alps with their three thousand metre summits create a fantastic natural backdrop and stage for numerous outdoor activities, as well as being a welcome haven to enjoy the essential pleasures of rest, relaxation and revitalisation.
Mayrhofen is the gateway to four subsidiary valleys Mayrhofen where visitors can embark on exciting tours of discovery. They spread out behind Mayrhofen like the fingers of a hand. Thanks to their incredible diversity, everyone will find their own favourite spot and savour the welcoming hospitality of the rustic mountain refuge huts.
Penken Mountain, with its huge network of hiking trails and bike routes suitable for young and old, is the place to be for thrill seekers. If you’re up for some action, visit the Funsportstation at the Penken Reservoir
Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region is situated at an altitude of 630 m above sea level at the end of Zillertal, where the valley splits into the four subsidiary valleys of Zillergrund, Stillupgrund, Zemmgrund and Tux.
