Snow magic, winter romance and a world of alpine wonder – all wrapped up in white
Winter transforms the lush alpine meadows around Mayrhofen into soft deep snow slopes. Wrapped in soft white, Mayrhofen seems like a fairytale land-full of magic, comforting smells and winter surprises.

Experience the winter wonderland of the Zillertal from its most beautiful side with your Resort Hotel Neuhaus. Enjoy yourself, be it winter hiking, counting snowflakes in front of your panoramic window or enveloped in cosy warmth with a cup of tea to warm you while you gaze at the clear starry sky from your balcony. We tell you what makes Mayrhofen so special in winter.
Winter Hiking and Snowshoeing
There's no question about it, the abundance of snow is what makes winter holidays in Tyrol so special. The mountains, the crystal clear air. But it's also the people you meet. The hearty cuisine. The living customs. The romantic Advent season. You can experience a little bit of everything when winter hiking or snowshoeing. Hike through sleepy villages or through deep snow-covered nature on over 80 kilometres of cleared winter hiking trails. Or venture into the wilderness, with snowshoes on your feet through untouched natural landscapes. You will not only encounter the people, lifestyles and traditions of the region, but also the animals of winter nature. Can you interpret the tracks in the snow in front of you?
If you are one of the lucky ones who get to spend the wonderful Advent season with us in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal, then you have a very special time ahead of you. The Mayrhofner Advent at the Waldfestplatz in Mayrhofen is an idyllic, quiet highlight. Here the genuine spirit of Christmas can be felt and experienced. Here you will find authentic local customs instead of Santa Clauses. Regional products, seasonal delicacies, a smile behind every market stall. Lovingly designed and decorated streets, houses and stalls. Soft sounds accompanied by snowflakes and the smell of freshly baked cookies. A bonfire that makes the shadows of the people around dance on the walls. In Mayrhofen in winter we reflect on the past, on togetherness, on enjoyment and on beauty. Become a part of it during your winter holiday in Mayrhofen in Tyrol.
Cross country skiing in the Zillertal
When the first snowflakes fall, cross-country skiers wait anxiously for the snow cover to reach a height of 30 cm. Because then the trails in the Zillertal are groomed and cross-country skiing can start. Directly in Mayrhofen there are three perfectly groomed cross-country trails, four, if we include the Hollenzen trail in Laubichl nearby. Throughout the Zillertal, there are many kilometres of perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails available to you in winter-for sprinters and skaters alike. Cross-country skiing uses so many muscle groups like no other sport and is ideal to stay fit in winter, to be in the fresh air and to collect valuable nature impressions.
Tobogganing in and around Mayrhofen
Tobogganing combines a romantic walk through the snowy winter around Mayrhofen with exuberant action and lots of fun for young and old. Walk on crunching snow under the stars to the Wiesenhof in Mayrhofen. At the top a warming tea or a schnapps will reward you. If the ascent has made you hungry, there are also hearty delicacies for you to fortify yourself. Afterwards you can toboggan down to the valley on the illuminated toboggan run. Real tobogganing pros of course take their own toboggan with them. For all those who didn't have enough space in the car or who don’t have a toboggan to call their own, there are toboggans to rent directly in Mayrhofen.
Ice skating and curling
The ice rink in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal is sporty fun for all ages. Glide elegantly over the artificial ice rink or have a race with your kids. Ice skates can be rented directly at the ice rink in Mayrhofen. Have you ever tried curling? During your winter holiday in Tyrol you have the opportunity to do so. Curling has a bit in common with boccia, only that you play it on ice and not in the sand. Let the ice stick glide over the track and try to get it as close as possible to the "stave". This requires skill and also a little luck. Other players can quickly shoot you away from the winning position again.
