Just 4 minutes’ walk from the centre, this traditional four star hotel is known for its good service and food and its relaxed atmosphere. Only 800m to the newly upgraded Penken cable-car, with a ski bus stop outside.
If you’re looking for a rustic traditional village with modern lifts and access to the largest ski area in Austria then Mayrhofen is the place for you. Unlike other ski resorts, you’ll find plenty in Mayrhofen – there is long a stretch with bars, restaurants and shops.
On the famous Zillertal ski area – you’ll have 535km of pistes. Be sure to explore Hintertux glacier – you can’t get enough of the powder skiing and sweeping views. You’re above the clouds here meaning you’ll avoid any of the poor weather further down the mountain.
Mayrhofen is a heavyweight resort for skiers, boarders and freestylers. If you’re a freestyler you won’t want to miss a chance to practice your tricks one of Europe’s largest snow parks – Penken park. You’ll find it on the sunny side of the Hornberg mountain – split into six separate areas, it even has its own chairlift.
You can also try Austria’s steepest run – the Hara Kiri. If completed you’ll win a ‘I survived Hara Kiri’ t-shirt. There is plenty for beginners too – with learning areas, quality teaching and many blue runs.
Before heading down the mountain why not enjoy a drink inside the igloo village – all ages love it here. On your way down you won’t be able to resist a stop off at the lively Pilzbar – you’ll hear the party a mile off.
Once your back in town the fun continues - whether it’s a relaxed cocktail, friendly pub or wild party Mayrhofen has you covered. The night usually begins in the ice bar and ends in the early hours at Brück'n Stadl. You’ll quickly find out why Austrian après ski is famous. If you can’t hold out until dinner we recommend Gasser deli – serving traditional meats, it is the perfect pit stop before après ski.
