Zillertal Arena

Enthralling surprises as far as the eyes can see!

Enthralling surprises as far as the eyes can see! That‘s the Zillertal Arena, extending from the towns of Zell am Ziller and Gerlos, right in the valley‘s heart, through the neighboring Salzburger Pinzgau towns of Wald/K.nigsleiten and Krimml, to the Krimml Waterfalls. Take a blissful time off your everyday rut and refuel your vigor with a broad range of diverse sportive activities and other recreational offerings. Discover the latest innovative and individually customizable vacation programs: “Berg aktiv” (“Mountain-Active”), “Genuss aktiv” (“Enjoyment Active”), and “aktiv Wellness” (“active Wellness”) – created by the recreation experts of the Zillertal Arena.


With its population of 1,800 people in an area of 2.4 km., Zell is the heart of the Zillertal. This township is the administrative and educational center of the Zillertal. Anyone can experience the bliss of the mountains here – be it through hiking, climbing, biking, paragliding, or just by enjoying the wonderful clean air and the gorgeous views! With its 45,000 m., this stately recreational park enriches your vacation in Zell with various tennis courts incl. an indoor tennis center, a nine-pin pro bowling center, a miniature golf park, a “fun court” for basketball and streetball, a beach volleyball court, a soccer field, an outdoor adventure bath, and a caf. with a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains. Zell is also the location of the oldest privately-owned brewery in all of Tyrol. And on the first weekend in May, the annual Gauder Fest is celebrated – Austria‘s greatest springtime folklore celebration where the people of the region show off their fanciful traditional attire.
