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.
The state-of-the-art 3S Gondola Penken lift is open from approx 14 May to 09 October. 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.
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.
