Summer feeling in the Zillertal


One look out the window early in the morning and it quickly becomes clear: you are only a
stone's throw away from your next mountain adventure!


Backpack packed and hiking boots on?

Surrounded by the Zillertal and Tux Alps, Apart Hörhager in Kaltenbach is the ideal starting point for all kinds of hikes and mountain tours! On 1,400 km of excellently signposted hiking trails, you can reach not only the most remote natural jewels, but each step also brings you a little closer to your true self! And if there are no more mountains at the end of your path, you have reached the summit!  

Alpine idyll and summit happiness 

If you follow the road uphill from your vacation home at Apart Hörhager, you will reach the Zillertaler Höhenstraße, a winding panoramic road that meanders up the mountain high above the tree line. Awaiting you is a spectacular mountain panorama as well as rustic inns and hill farms that invite you to stop for delicious refreshments along the Zillertaler Höhenstraße. On the opposite side of the valley, you can go on a 3-hour hike from Gasthof Almluft to the 2,095 m high Hamberg, one of the Zillertal's most beautiful panoramic mountains.  


Life is a beautiful ride

Leisurely cyclists, e-bikers, and mountain biking enthusiasts follow the call of the mountains in the Zillertal and can discover breathtaking natural landscapes on 2 wheels! An incredible 1,200 km of cycling paths, mountain bike routes, and single trails lead into the Zillertal through forests and fields, mountains and valley, and across country.  

Action on mountain bike

In the idyllic Zillertal side valleys, wonderful routes will whisk you away to remote hill farms, which you can reach either with your own muscle power or with the help of environmentally friendly, modern e-bikes. On the 10 state-of-the-art Zillertal summer lifts, you can comfortably reach the starting point for fantastic uphill and downhill rides as well as the mountain biking areas such as the Zillertal Bike Arena. The high ropes course in Kaltenbach, which includes a 100-meter-long practice trail for beginners and those more advanced, starts right above Apart Hörhager.

Zillertal bike trail

The family-friendly Zillertal bike trail leads out of the valley along the rushing Ziller river to the Inn bike trail or into the valley to Mayrhofen with a barely noticeable incline. No matter which direction you go! Awaiting you along the leisurely bike route in the idyllic towns in the Zillertal are a variety of outdoor pools, playgrounds, and coffeehouses!

Other recreational opportunities

Walk to the Paulerhof

If you cross the wooden footbridge over the Ziller in Kaltenbach and walk around 2 kilometers out of the valley along the river, you will reach the picturesque Paulerhof, which has been run by the family of your host Maria for generations. Along with happy cows, hens, and a dwarf pony, you can discover an old orchard and impressive herb garden on the organic farm. Upon request, you have the opportunity to purchase homemade soaps and products made from medicinal herbs or go on an herb hike with farmer Eva. 


Towering high above Zell am Ziller is the Fichtenschloss ("Spruce Tree Castle"), a magical place for the imagination! You can reach this spectacular adventure playground for children and the nearby Fichtensee after a comfortable ride on the Rosenalmbahn lift.  


The state capital of Innsbruck, which is 50 km away, exudes a special charm with its many historical buildings, coffeehouses, shopping opportunities, as well as sporting and cultural events. Following the footsteps of the old sovereigns, you can discover special sights such as the Goldenes Dachl ("Golden Roof") or the Hofburg (Imperial Palace).
