Winter in Zillertal
As the first rays of sun light up the freshly groomed slopes, strap on your boots, pull your goggles over your eyes and set off down the slopes in great sweeping turns. The breathtaking mountain panorama will take your breath away and millions of snow crystals sparkle in the air alongside horse-drawn sleigh rides, skiing in the Zillertal and snowboarding in Mayrhofen, hiking, cross-country skiing, tobogganing or one of the white fun sports.
What a glorious moment! Truly fabulous! That is the winter magic of Zillertal!
