The treasures of the Zillertal…
Bouldering – climbing without equipment – is becoming more and more popular. The Zillertal boasts many areas with natural climbing routes for all levels of difficulty, from beginners to professionals. The valley is one of the most popular boulder areas in all of Austria!Das Zillertal ist eines der besten Boulder Gebiete in ganz Österreich.
The Zillertal, with its lush green meadows and alpine pastures, is home to many charming little farms that produced regional and organic cheeses. You simply must try some of these specialities!
The pilgrimage church of Maria Rast on Hainzenberg dates back to 1659, with today’s church being completed in 1756 in the beautiful Rokoko style. Many pilgrims from near and far enjoy the scenic walk up the hill to this charming little church that survived a rock fall in 1914.
The Zillertal is one of the most famous sports destinations – both in summer, with 1.400 kilometres of walking and hiking trails, and in winter, with 590 kilometres of slopes and 180 lifts. All of this surrounded by 55 peaks over 3.000 metres high!
High above Zell, a via ferrata climbing trail leads through the north face of the Gerlossteinwand all the way to the summit, which offers beautiful views of the surrounding alpine scenere. The via ferrata is suitable for everybody with the right equipment and leads over natural paths and artificial hand-holds.
Ever since 1500, for 16 generations, the oldest private brewery in Tirol has been brewing Zillertal Bier with fresh, crystal-clear mountain water, barley and hops. Every year for the traditional Gauder Fest spring festival, a special, strong Bockbier is also brewed.
The Zillertal is known as the valley of music – and Zell am Ziller could be seen as its capital. Music is tradition here in Zell, with a village brass band existing since 1818. Don’t miss one of their concerts at the bandstand in the centre of the village!
Working with wood to craft intricate figures and appliances is an old tradition in the Zillertal, held alive until today. While in other regions, you might only find this in museums, in our valley it’s still alive and well!
In many other alpine regions, each village has its own traditional costume, but in the Zillertal, the whole valley wears the same, unique outfit for traditional and festive events. Its most famous part is the grey “Tuxer“ jacket made of sheep’s wool.
The alpine marmot is one of our region’s most famous and typical animals, living in the very highest regions of the Alps. Especially in Autumn, it can be heard screaming far and wide.
Our valley also has a long tradition of beekeping, with many still practising this craft in our villages. Bees are one of the most important species on our planet and are not just used to make tasty honey, but also other products such as bees’ wax, pollen and bee bread as well as various cosmetics and health products.
Forestry is another important part of the economics of the valley, as well as having a long tradition here. Without wood, our traditional farmhouses could not have been built.
We love our cows – and they are also famous in many other parts of the Alps for the excellent quality of their dairy and meat products. What would a country be without its cattle and farmers? The Zillertal, with its lush green meadows, is ideal for this area of farming!
Water is the origin of life for humans, animals and plants. In our region, we can profit from especially good, deliciously refreshing water from mountain sources. This water can be drunk from all taps in the region and really does taste delicious, particularly when enjoyed ice cold!
The golden eagle is one of the most famous animals of the Alps. It can reach a wingspan of up to 2.3 metres and sails majestically through the air and between the highest peaks.
Cowbells have the handy purpose of allowing farmers to keep an eye (or ear!) on their cattle herds, but also, they can bee seen and heard every autumn at the traditional bringing down of the cows from their alpine pastures to the farms down in the valley. For this festival, the cows are decorated and the whole vilalge comes together to celebrate.
The cable car on Gerlosstein, leading up to a height of 1643 metres above sea level, was opened in 1960 and was thus one of the first in the region. Worth a visit in summer and winter alike!
Over 150 cosy huts and cabins offer a traditional atmosphere, delicious food and drink, and are the perfect place for a break and snack before, during or after an exhilerating hike in the mountains!
