Located at the upper end of Zillertal in Tyrol, Mayrhofen provides a perfect setting for outdoor adventures and hikes in the mountains. The fauna and flora in the countryside surrounding Mayrhofen have been part of a protected nature park since 1991.
Close to Mayrhofen are a number of shorter hikes through neighboring side valleys. They can be completed within one day and are also suitable for families:
Experience a day in the magnificent mountain world of Tyrol, and enjoy traditional Tyrolean cooking at one of the region's friendly mountain huts. Short, easy-to-navigate hikes are also fun for the kids. That said, even on shorter hikes it is really important to have the right outdoor clothing. We don't want an unexpected change in the weather to put a "damper" on your nature experience after all. Allow the professionals at our sport shops in Mayrhofen to suggest the gear that's best for your needs.
An especially rewarding hiking tour takes you along the Berliner Höhenwanderweg trail and lasts 7 days. You will spend your nights at different mountain huts and be able to experience the full beauty of the Zillertal Alps. This route is also suitable for hikers who are in average condition. Nonetheless, aside from hiking poles and boots, functional sportswear is an absolute must. In the high mountains, the weather can take a rapid turn for the worse. And a sunny morning can transform into a rainy afternoon. With outdoor clothing from the Bründl sports shop in Mayrhofen, you are always protected from those potential sudden downpours.
