Explore the mountains of the Zillertal

As you hike into your summer vacation you will leave the obligations of everyday life behind. Every step you take will take you closer to the summit, closer to the view point, and closer to your self.

We are passionate hikers ourselves and enjoy to share our passion and inside knowledge with our guests. This becomes apparent when Resi shares her experience with you over breakfast and explains the most picturesque trail up to the ‘Wiedersberger Horn’ or when Anni Held invites you to join her on a high alpine hiking tour. Our passion is real and our options for your active vacation are great.

Hiking Recommendation: From Spieljoch to Hochfügen

This hike begins at the Spieljoch upper and takes you to Hochfügen in 3,5 hours. Along the 12,8 kilometre route lie a summit experience, alpine pastures, and stunning views into the Ziller and Inn Valleys as well as the Tux Alps and Karwendel mountains. With some luck you might even spot a marmot, chamois, or golden eagle.
