The Zillertal valley
Skiing, biking, mountain biking, climbing and hiking
The Zillertal presents itself as a top destination in the heart of the Alps. With more than 4.5 million overnight stays in winter, the Tyrolean region is Austria's leading holiday destination. Surrounded by numerous three-thousand-meter peaks, the wide and thus sunny valley stretches over 47 km and rises only slightly. The valley has its name from the river Ziller, the valley runs out and flows into the Inn.
