Just how winter should be
Zillertal is one of the largest ski resorts in Austria. Here, you can look forward to exceptional skiing with 142 kilometres of diverse pistes, gigantic snow parks, and legendary après-ski. In the centre of Mayrhofen, directly next to Sport & Spa Hotel Strass, you’ll find the valley station of Zillertal’s Penkenbahn cable car, which transports you to the heart of skiing fun in just a few minutes.

Traditional Mayrhofner Advent
Get in the mood for Christmas and enjoy the festive atmosphere at the Forest Festival Area in Mayrhofen. Stalls, local treats, a blacksmith, and a stage transform the snowy forest clearing into a winter wonderland that delights both the heart and the eyes. Soft Christmas melodies from brass bands ring through the night and the scent of mulled wine fills the winter air. This Advent market is anything but commercial and loud –it’s all about the true Christmas spirit, traditional customs, and a wonderfully festive atmosphere. The highlight for children: a Christmas Post Office where they can write and send their wish list to Santa. The eye-catcher for adults: a hand-tied Advent wreath with a diameter of 3.5 metres.
Mayrhofner Advent takes place on the four Advent weekends from Friday to Sunday evening.
