Mayrhofen is a small town nestled in the Ziller Valley and surrounded by the steep mountains of the Austrian Alps. Known for its beauty and warm Tyrolean hospitality, this friendly village and its inhabitants will ensure that your vacation is an unforgettable experience both on and off the slopes.
The vast region of Mayrhofen and the Ziller Valley includes over 150 lifts, with vertical drops of up to 4,500 feet, terrain for beginners to experts, and numerous on-slope restaurants and bars. Mayrhofen itself consists of three main ski areas: the Penkenjoch, the Horberg-Gerent, and the Ahorn. At the head of the valley is the pretty resort of Hintertux, lying at the foot of the glacier. With the base of the resort at 4,920 feet and the height of the top lift station at 10,693 feet, excellent snow conditions are the norm. The Zillertal Super Ski Pass covers all ski areas in the Valley, including train and bus transportation between the resorts.
Off the slopes, you'll enjoy exploring Mayrhofen and the surrounding villages in the valley. Sightseeing excursions are available to Innsbruck and the Swarovski Crystal World Museum, Salzburg, Kitzbuhel and Vipiteno, Italy. For non-skiers, a Pedestrian Pass is available, allowing access to several miles of winter walking paths, spectacular views and many on-slope restaurants.
The elegant, yet cozy Hotel Berghof will be your home for the week. It’s located in the center of the village, and its friendly Tyrolean atmosphere is sure to charm you.
