Hiking & Mountaineering

The Zillertal mountains provide a stunning landscape for nature lovers to explore in any number of ways. From gentle rambles to challenging mountain expeditions, every hiker is well catered for.

 

The Berliner Höhenweg, also called the Zillertal circuit, offers endurance sportsmen and women a fantastic multi-stage tour. The challenging trail crosses high alpine terrain and should only be attempted by experienced mountain hikers in high summer. In one week you will cover a distance of 70 kilometres and conquer a total of 6,700 altitude metres.

 

Standing at the cross on the peak of a mountain is one of the most incredible feelings and should be experienced at least once in a lifetime. The mountain peaks around the Furtschaglhaus offer various levels of difficulty. Summits such as the Schönbichler Horn, Furtschaglspitze and the Große Greiner can be conquered, without too much assistance, by hikers with a good head for heights. However, the Große Möseler, the second highest peak in the Zillertal Alps, should only be attempted by experienced mountaineers with glacial experience, or with the help of a mountain guide.
