The Zillertal Valley
The perfect holiday destination in the heart of Tyrol. Tux-Finkenberg and Mayrhofen.
Beautifully ensconced in the Tyrolean Alps, the Zillertal Valley is considered an absolute dream destination for summer and winter vacations. 32 kilometres in length, it extends from Strass to Mayrhofen, where it divides into four side valleys (Zillergrund, Zemmgrund, Stilluptal, Tuxertal).
Surrounded by numerous three-thousand-metre-high peaks, the idyllic valley offers breathtaking views of the Tyrolean mountains. The highest point in the region is Mount Hochfeiler, standing tall at 3,509 metres above sea level.
This exceptional valley consists of 25 charming villages with a combined population of around 33,500 inhabitants. The valley itself is named after the Ziller River, which runs through the valley and flows into the Inn River near Strass. It also separates the dioceses of Innsbruck and Salzburg, which is reflected in the colours of the church steeples. To the west of the Ziller, the steeples are clad in red tiles, while to the east they are green.
The "Valley of Music" is characterised by its countless hiking opportunities and excellent ski areas. Thousands of kilometres of hiking trails and skiing slopes are just waiting to be discovered. Culture and entertainment also play a big role in this picturesque corner of the world. Numerous events and day-trip destinations also invite you to linger when the weather doesn’t play ball.
