Mayrhofen. Where it all begins.
Mayrhofen naturally has a whole chapter dedicated to it. After all, this is where our Resort Hotel Neuhaus is located, and where are roots are. In Mayrhofen in the Zillertal, ancient buildings provide historic charming houses like the Strasser Häusl, where the world-famous Christmas carol "Silent Night, Holy Night" was first performed by the Strasser children. In the "Erlebnissennerei" (Alpine Dairy Experience), you can experience the cheese-making process up close – and cheese is as much a part of the Zillertal as the mountains are of the Alps. High above Mayrhofen on the Penken at over 2,000 metres is also the eagle stage, the highest eagle station in Austria. Get to know eagles, buzzards and more at this unique location.
