Summer in the Zillertal
Leisure activities in the Zillertal | Tyrol
The Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region is surrounded by the three-thousand-metre peaks of the Zillertal and Tux Alps.
With us you can enjoy a unique panorama on the sunny side of the Zillertal valley.
Summer, along with autumn, is the best time of year for extensive hikes, trying out the via ferratas or rock climbing or exploring the beautiful landscape by bike. Cycling is one of the many popular sports in the Zillertal.
The quiet side valleys, babbling mountain streams, idyllic lakes and rustic alpine inns offer attractive excursion destinations by bike or on foot. Due to its central location in the valley, Raumsau im Zillertal is more or less predestined for this. We are happy to give you tips for hiking tours in the region. For mountaineers, the Upper Zillertal is a true paradise.
