Summer Holidays in the Zillertal Arena

Not only in winter the opportunities in the Zillertal Arena, the largest ski area in the Zillertal, are almost limitless. Some highlights for action fans are already waiting in the Zillertal Arena! The Arena Coaster (the first Alpine rollercoaster), the Arena Skyliner and the Flying Fox, canyoning  and paragliding are offered in your action holiday in the Zillertal.

Hiking in the Zillertal Arena

Zell im Zillertal, Gerlos, Königsleiten/Wald and Krimml/Hochkrimml – these four holiday resorts connect the Zillertal Alps with Salzburg’s Pinzgau region along a 400 kilometre-long network of hiking trails. Up hill and down dale, from gentle hikes to challenging alpine tours, the routes let you explore Austria’s fascinating mountain scenery in all its abundant variety. True mountain enthusiasts appreciate what the Zillertal Arena has to offer: pristine natural beauty, rustic mountain huts and a well-earned rest away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Bike Arena Zell am Ziller

You can enjoy the breathtaking mountain scenery of the Zillertal valley and the Pinzgau region on mountain bike, e-bike or on a standard bicycle. With a 325 kilometre-long network of paths and trails covering all levels of difficulty, you can enjoy yourself to the full on two-wheels. The fun-packed forest cycle trails ensure there’s never a dull moment. But if you prefer the easy-going, flat paths down in the valley, then there are lots of cycle trips to interesting attractions for you to enjoy. The Tauern cycle path, for example, runs alongside the River Salzach all the way to Passau. If you’re looking for something more challenging, then you need look no further than the Hohe Tauern national park which rewards your hard pedalling work with its breathtaking natural beauty.

  • 325 kilometres of mountain biking trails from the Tyrolean Zillertal valley to Salzburg’s Pinzgau region

"Gerlossteinwand" - the first via ferrata in the Zillertal

The 380 meter long fixed-rope climbing route, "Gerlossteinwand", leads along a 240 meter high wall on the same-named mountain. It doesn't only offer Alpine pleasures, but also leads to one of the valley's most beautiful peaks. Introductory trial climbs for beginners are offered on the new route, categorized as medium difficult, which was constructed by the local mountain rescue team, in cooperation with the Zillertal Arena. The local alpine sports schools provide expert tips and accompany beginners on the climb, which can be comfortably reached with the Gerlosstein cable car.
