Your hiking holiday in the Zillertal valley

Lace up your hiking boots

Discover the mountains on foot: it’s all possible along the approx. 1,400 km of footpaths in the Zillertal Alps. From easy Alpine walks to challenging summit tours, there is something to suit every preference and fitness level here. Thanks to the location of our Kräuterhotel Hochzillertal***S, you can even conquer some peaks straight from the hotel. Our tip: whatever you decide – you can combine your walk with a traditional Tyrolean treat at a mountain lodge.

You can also use the interactive hiking map to plan your next mountain or lodge tour from the comfort of your home.


By the way: our senior partner Josef is a trained mountain and hiking guide and regularly takes our guests to some of the most beautiful spots in the area. Don’t miss this guided walk and ask at reception about the next date.
