Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Undoubtedly two of the best known hotels in Mayrhofen. Centrally located near to the Penkenbahn, the interconnecting Strass and Sport Strass hotels are both impressive and welcoming, enjoying a central location next to the Penken gondola on the village high street. With excellent leisure facilities including a large spa, pool and garden areas, they have been a firm favourite with Inghams guests for many years and are a good choice for those seeking a lively base with a variety of entertainment. The Sport Strass is the newer of the two wings, and both hotels share communal areas and leisure facilities.

Mayrhofen

This lively, bustling village is one of the most popular summer resorts in the Tyrol, offering an unrivalled range of activities, excursions and events throughout the summer. Situated at the end of the Ziller Valley, there is extensive walking for all levels in 4 local valleys, and the ‘Zillertal Natur’ runs an excellent programme of FREE guided walks. An old-fashioned steam locomotive is a popular way to explore the valley, and in the evenings it is wonderful to sit outside whilst Mayrhofen comes alive with regular live music and traditional festivals. The name Mayrhofen derives from “Meierhof”, an episcopal farmyard dating back to 1200 AD.

Penken Lift

The state-of-the-art 3S Gondola Penken lift is open from approx 25th May to 13th October 2019. The construction of the Penkenbahn marked the beginning of a new era in Mayrhofen with a sleek climb up the near-sheer rock face to the top of the mountain, where numerous hiking trails begin. Transporting 32 people per gondola, it has halved the old journey time to a speedy eight minutes and has the convenience of Wi-Fi access.

Things to do in resort

Situated at the end of the Ziller valley, Mayrhofen boasts a wide variety of walks from gentle valley strolls along the Ziller River to steep woodland hikes and beautiful panoramas from the top of the Penken or Ahorn cablecars. Many mountain restaurants offer typical Austrian specialities for a lunchtime treat. The village is lively and bustling, and with tennis, swimming, adventure sports and even summer skiing on the Hintertux Glacier, Mayrhofen is a wonderful base for an active summer holiday. The local steam train is a popular way to get up and down the valley and in the evenings there is a variety of live entertainment in the hotels, bars and cafés. Our resident representatives are available to arrange excursions and special events for people on holidays in Mayrhofen.
