The hiking destination of the Zillertal
The largest and probably most diverse hiking destination in Tyrol is undoubtedly the Zillertal. Over 1,000 km of hiking paths attract many hiking enthusiasts and mountain climbers to the Zillertal in summer. Everything is offered here from theme or hill farm hikes to challenging summits tours. You will find hiking tours in all difficulty levels and at all elevations. For beginners, families with children, and advanced mountain climbers, the most active valley in the world offers countless hiking routes.
Hikes in all difficulty levels
Theme and adventure hikes and easy hikes for families
In the Zillertal, there are more than 30 exciting theme and adventure paths with interesting topics. On nature trails, you can learn about the cultural, historical, or culinary aspects of our valley on leisurely walks. A hike on an adventure trail is especially recommended for children: exciting stories combined with movement in the fresh air. The easy hikes lead along the valley floor with few inclines.
Hill farm and hut hikes for advanced hikers
Mountain fans will find crystal-clear mountain lakes, fresh mountain air, and green meadows with alpine herbs and flowers in the Zillertal. The hut hosts prepare delicious Zillertal specialties (Zillertal donuts, Melchermus, Kaiserschmarrn pancakes ...) and at the hill farms, there is fresh hay milk and buttermilk. Many of the wonderful hikes to green hill farms and rustic huts begin right at the Paulerhof. The hiking routes to the farms or huts lead through Alpine regions, so come equipped with sturdy shoes and rain protection.
Summit tours of expert alpinists
Challenging summit tours lead up to the summits of the Tux Alps or the Kitzbühel Alps or in the south the Zillertal Alps. They are recommended only for experienced hikers with good mountain equipment.
The upper Zillertal and the mountain climbing village of Ginzling are popular for their diverse high alpine mountain tours at elevations of over 3,000 m. Mountain climbers in good physical shape are also delighted by the multi-day tours from hut to hut or over ice and glacier.
