Whether hiking to the Brindlingalm on Hochschwendberg or to Gasthof Tristenbach Alm; a visit to Spannagel Cave on the Hintertux Glacier, the Strasser Cottage in Laimach or the Advent festivities at Waldfestplatz in Mayrhofen: your winter holiday will be an experience.
The Penken ski area is one of the most varied in Austria. With a gradient of 78%, the Harakiri slope is the steepest in Zillertal and a special attraction. Skiers have a total of 142 kilometres of prepared piste of all grades at their disposal. 130 of them are around the Horberg, Rastkogel, Eggalm and the Penken Action Mountain.
You can get to the Penkin ski area from Finkenberg, Schwendau and Mayrhofen. Freestylers love the Penken Park. With the Zillertal Superskipass you can enjoy full flexibility and use all main skiing areas – Penken, Zillertal Arena and Hochzillertal. The Ahorn Leisure Mountain and the Hintertux Glacier are also included.
Tobogganing is very popular with people of all ages. An insider tip is the Brindlingalm natural toboggan run on Hochschwendberg. From the Möslbahn cable car station on Schwendberg, it goes through idyllic spruce forest to an alpine pasture with panoramic views and, from there, rapidly down into the valley on a toboggan.
The natural toboggan run from Gasthof Wiesenhof in Mayrhofen is very popular too. There is also a 7-kilometere toboggan run for the whole family on Gerlosstein that is floodlit in the evening.
There are cross-country ski trails in the immediate vicinity of Moni‘s Apartment. The groomed trails are partly suitable for skating too. A 25-kilometre regional trail goes from Zell am Ziller to Mayrhofen. You can choose between leisure, marathon, sprint and professional trails in the holiday region.
