Mayrhofen and Hiking: Guided, alone, with children or with dog .
Hiking is... getting up close and personal with the Zillertal Alps, gathering impressions of nature and returning with a rucksack full of memories.
Even though it's hard to put a figure on the wealth of experiences hiking around Mayrhofen, the 1,400 kilometres of hiking in the Zillertal are something to be proud of. What is even more important are the many impressions you gather on every single one of these kilometres. The closeness to nature, the many highlights and encounters with nature. The silence in the midst of untouched nature. The scent of fresh forest meadows, tree tops and fresh moss. The grandiose feeling when you finally stand at the top, next to the summit cross, and Mayrhofen and the Zillertal lie at your feet. Hike off and let your feelings guide you. With your Resort Hotel Neuhaus in Mayrhofen, the hiking experience begins right at your holiday home. Start hiking and discover hikes from easy to challenging, hikes with children or with your dog and let yourself be inspired by the diversity of the alpine world.

The Zillertal Alps High Mountain Nature Park starts very close to your holiday home in Mayrhofen. Hike along ancient trails and discover spectacular natural wonders along the way. The 422 km² high mountain nature park is a true refuge where regional animals and plants are under special protection. Get to know the mountains while hiking in their original unaltered, authentic state, as they have been for centuries, if not millennia. The entrance to the high mountain nature park Zillertal Alps is marked by our local mountain - the connoisseur mountain Ahorn. From there, this untouched mountain world extends to the 3,509 metre high Hochfeiler. Dive deeper into the natural world of the Alps on guided hikes with trained nature park guides and experience the mountain world with all your senses.
A world of adventure
Seen through children's eyes, the Zillertal mountains are even more exciting: behind every bend, every mountain peak and every bush there are secrets to be discovered. It is not uncommon for adults to begin to see the world again with curious eyes – just like when they were children themselves. Around Mayrhofen you can hike with your children on safe, well signposted hiking trails. The "Genießerrundweg" on the Ahorn plateau is even suitable for prams.
It also provides impressive information about the region's diverse flora and fauna. Numerous viewing platforms make for wide eyes and wide mouths. The hiking trail to the Filzenkogel rewards small and large mountain enthusiasts with a special panoramic view over the Zillertal. There is also a panoramic trail suitable for prams on the action mountain Penken – it leads from the mountain cable car station of the Penken combined lift up to the Penkenjoch high above Mayrhofen. Here you can do more than just hike: At the fun sports station, mountain scooters, an e-trial course, a motor skills course and a mountain playground provide alpine excitement that is guaranteed to put a big smile on your children's faces.
Hiking with cold snouts
