The Zillertal – probably the most active valley in Tyrol. Being active comes naturally to all Zillertal residents.
When one of the world's largest sports areas is right outside your door, you have no choice but to head outside, move around in the fresh air, hike up to the gorgeous alpine world of the ZIllertal, explore, and strengthen mind, body, and spirit. It will do you good!
In both summer and winter, the Zillertal is unbeatable when it comes to variety and diversity. There are biking routes of all difficulty levels, golfing, swimming, hiking, climbing, or canyoning for adrenaline junkies in summer. In winter, you can enjoy skiing, winter hiking and snowshoeing, ice skating, cross-country skiing, or a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride.
In winter, Zillertal fulfills its promise: fun, movement, and entertainment for the whole family in the winter wonderland of Tyrol.

Alpine winter happiness in the Zillertal Alps
Soft snow, white splendor, and fresh air that fill us with joy. The highest mountains and the most beautiful sunshine high above where we long to be. (Avelina Riru)
As the sun caresses your face, the glistening snow crystals and the panoramic view of 55 mountain peaks with an elevation of over 3,000 m will take your breath away.
This is what winter looks like here in Hippach. It is a calm setting for those looking for peace and quiet, and yet, there is a party atmosphere when it's time for après ski. At the Garberwirt, it is comfy and cozy. The fire crackles in the fireplace, the tea warms you up from the inside, and your hosts pamper you and ensure that you feel great. And outside? There is plenty of action: cross-country skiing, alpine skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating! In the meantime, children can build snowmen and dash down the slopes on a sled.
