Things to do in summer

Visit Zell am Ziller in summer - there are plenty of things to do! Whether hiking, cycling, climbing or golfing, the magnificent scenery in Zillertal with numerous peaks over 3,000 metres means that no one sits around for long. An enjoyable hike or extensive mountain bike tour in the mountains or valley, a great stop for refreshments at a traditional Alpine lodge or fun and action for the whole family at one of the many attractions – there is something for everyone in the Zillertal Arena.

Zell am Ziller Leisure Park

Relaxation, sport and games are top of the list at the Zell am Ziller Leisure Park; "Treasures of the Zillertal Valley". The parkland between the indoor tennis courts and Zell am Ziller's open-air swimming pool is being completely redeveloped.

In the three main areas:

  • Gold-diggers' playground
  • Adventure golf
  • Active camp

... numerous attractions for old and young are being created, which in many ways will be worthy of the valley's "treasures".

'Fichtenschloss' Spruce Tree Castle in Zell am Ziller

Childhood is full of enchanting and magical moments – you and your family can rediscover this with the magic spruce at Fichtenschloss. A very long time ago, the industrious elves came to the Rosenalm, where they built a large beautiful castle for the royal couple who were supposed to live there.

TALBACH Via Ferrata

A via ferrata close to the valley with two interesting sections and fantastically exciting  rope bridges, which you can reach on foot from our building. There are ample steel brackets and several exit points on this magnificent route next to the waterfall.

You can start via the rope bridge behind the archery ground, next to the 'Jausenstüberl' restaurant; or follow the signs for the 'Klettersteig-Rundwanderweg', turning somewhat down stream over the bridge and climbing on a path to the entry point: in each case, only a few minutes.
