Mayrhofen has all the ingredients for a perfect winter day

Mayrhofen offers a wide range of highlights in order to make its guests‘ vacation a memorable experience – on the slopes and otherwise. Surrounded by majestic claciers and breathtaking 3km summits, the Alps of the Zillertal and  Tux invite you to take Austria‘s biggest cable gondola up the Ahorn mountain. A spectacular view awaits its passangers, as the Ahornbahn elevates them silently to higher and higher altitudes. Once you step out at the Ahorn plateau, you‘ll understand right away why it‘s called the “Mountain of Delights”: the most gorgeous sunlit slopes as far as the eyes can see! While those looking for beauty  and recreation head up the Ahorn, those looking for action typically prefer the Penken mountain! “Harakiri” – Japanese for “ritual suicide” – is the name of  Austria‘s steepest skiing slope not closed for hazardousness (yet), which enjoys a cult following. Next on the list, countless boxes, rails and kickers let the Penken Park rank among Europe‘s top addresses for freestylers. This powerful duo of two majestic mountains warrants winter fun for everyone – limits not included. As an alternative vacation program away from the snowy slopes, the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region offers cross-country skiing, winter hikes, ice skating, and Bavarian curling. Romantic, relaxing, authentic towns that also have got a thing or two for fashion, style, and modern entertainment, no less, invite you to discover their specialties. There‘s really something here for everyone! At the end of the day, it‘s time to celebrate – in one of the many superb apr.s-ski inns and lodges of the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region!
