Mayrhofen: A Mixture of Tradition, Family Atmosphere and Winter Sports

A holiday at the 4-star hotel in Mayrhofen

Mayrhofen in Zillertal: uniquely situated and picturesque

The idyllic small town in Tyrol really scores, being situated in the Upper Zillertal, east of the River Ziller, where several tributary valleys meet. The result - a unique landscape. For many walkers and nature lovers, Mayrhofen is therefore also an attractive holiday destination in summer.

Stay with the whole family

A stay between the Ahorn and Penken Mountains is ideal for families at anytime of year. In addition to numerous outdoor activities - such as hiking, cycling or hang-gliding - both Mayrhofen and Zillertal offer a great range of leisure activities. But despite all the variety, local traditions are still very popular. Our Hotel "Neue Post" is one of the best examples.

Winter Holidays in Mayrhofen

When people think about Tyrol in Austria and winter sports, they often have Zillertal and Mayrhofen in mind. This is no coincidence. The market town combines everything you need for a fantastic winter holiday.

With ski runs totalling 133 kilometres on both Ahorn and Penken mountains, as well as top skiing conditions and state-of-the-art lifts, skiing is the main attraction. But there is also a lot more. Mayrhofen is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Zillertal not only because of the large 'Snow Park', breathtaking scenery, architectural gems and a steep 'Harakiri' ski run.

Tyrol at its best: The ski resort on the Ahorn and Penken mountains

The Snow Park and Harakiri ski run are two highlights of the skiing area. But that is by no means all. The ski slopes on Ahorn and Penken - totalling 133 km in length - include runs for beginners, more advanced skiers and self-proclaimed professionals. There is everything from blue to black. One of the special things about the ski resort is the architecture: the foot of the Ahorn ski run - popular with leisure skiers - is enhanced by an architectural masterpiece. Five mountain restaurants offer first-class amenities for a stop during or after skiing. The new valley terminus of the Horbergbahn cable car is acclaimed for its customer-friendliness and impressive layout.

In addition to hikers, fans of extreme sports, mountain bikers and skiers - snowboard fans will also not be disappointed. Wide ski slopes for classic carving, or for free riding and freestyle, as well as fast slopes for speedy descents, are a must for both skiing and snowboarding fans. But Mayrhofen and the entire skiing area are not only suitable for downhill skiing. The region's attractions are rounded off by numerous cross-country skiing trails for people of all ages and abilities, as well as footpaths for winter walks.

Penken Snow Park

The Snow Park on Penken has an excellent reputation. In 2010 it was chosen as the best of its kind in Europe. In addition to ski slopes, there are also kicker tables, boxes and obstacle courses for young and old. A particular attraction of the ski resort of Mayrhofen is the "Harakiri" slope. With a gradient of 78 percent, it is the steepest slope in Austria. Many skiers come here just for this. But you should exercise great care, because irresponsible skiing often results in falls.

Summer Holidays in Mayrhofen

In summer, you will find a complete range of leisure activities in this small resort that make a summer holiday in Mayrhofen worthwhile on all accounts. On the other hand, the local community has a first-class track record in environmental issues and conservation in the winter sports areas. Several awards are proof of this.

If you want to book a room in a hotel in a top location, our Hotel "Neue Post" complements both the lively and more peaceful activities in one of the most well-known holiday destinations in the whole of Austria. It not only stands apart from other hotels in Mayrhofen. In addition to top-class cuisine with homemade specialities, the "Neue Post" also offers comprehensive spa and wellness facilities - setting very special standards for a hotel of this category.

That something special in Mayrhofen

Actually, there is no ONE thing special about Mayrhofen. There are attractive hotels, a large choice of leisure activates, as well as picturesque routes, cross-country trails and ski slopes. Highlights include the Igloo Village with its unique charm, situated at 2000 m on the Ahorn mountain.
But the attraction of the place actually comes from the locals themselves. The community has received a number of accolades for its environmental awareness and recognition of traditions. For example, Mayrhofen has been given several awards for the customer-friendliness and maintenance of its ski slopes.
The Austrian Association of Local Authorities has officially recognised Mayrhofen for its exemplary care of the environment and preservation of the historical village appearance. This is reflected in hotels such as our "Neue Post".
