Zillertal Arena: One of Austria's Most Beautiful Hiking Areas

Zillertal Arena is one of the sub-regions of the Austrian region Tyrol, where hiking and nature lovers can fully indulge. With routes of different lengths and difficulty levels, there's something for everyone, and you'll never tire of exploring the area. To give you some inspiration, we present some hikes in Zillertal Arena. Embark on an unforgettable adventure and admire the beautiful mountain landscape!

Hiking Through Zell am Ziller
If you're staying in Königsleiten or Hochkrimml and looking for beautiful hiking areas, you'll find them in Zell am Ziller and the surrounding villages of Gerlosberg, Hainzenberg, Rohrberg, and Zellberg. Here, hikers will find numerous routes suitable for both young and old. Whether you prefer hiking along scented meadows or strolling along babbling streams, you'll find it all here.

In the hiking paradise of Rohrberg, the popular Kraus Promenade comes highly recommended. During this hike, you'll explore beautiful forest areas and encounter a flowing river in 1.5 hours. The themed route Holzweg, showcasing the diverse flora and fauna of the forest, is also popular among tourists. Don't forget the panoramic route through Rosen Alm and Hainzenberg. For those seeking more challenge, the route to the 1835-meter-high Arbiskogel is a great choice. Upon reaching the top, you'll be rewarded with a breathtaking view over the entire Zillertal. Highly recommended!

Hiking Through Gerlos in Summer
From Zell am Ziller, continue to Gerlos, a place that impresses every hiking enthusiast with its diverse range of hiking trails. During a hiking vacation in Zillertal Arena, Gerlos is the perfect destination. You can enjoy both relaxed walks and demanding tours here, while savoring local specialties and stunning vistas. Is the entire family ready with hiking shoes on? Then the three-hour hike around the idyllic Durlassboden reservoir comes highly recommended. For enthusiasts, the hike from Arbiskogel to Lackengrubenalm is a rewarding challenge. However, good fitness is required for this five-hour tour.

If you'd like to observe animals, the nature educational trail should not be missing from your to-do list. In a short time, you'll hike through a valley with romantic views. Getting lost is impossible, as you only need to follow the Schwarzach river. Want to take a short break? Make a stop at Schwarzach Alm Meadow, where you can also get a refreshing drink. If you pay attention, you might spot a goat, an eagle, or a marmot. Does hiking in Gerlos sound appealing to you? Then book your stay nearby, for example, in Königsleiten, Hochkrimml, or Neukirchen am Großvenediger.

Hiking Trails in Königsleiten-Wald

True hiking enthusiasts will undoubtedly find the hikes through Königsleiten-Wald fantastic. In the mountains of Salzburg, there are plenty of paths that showcase the beauty of nature all too well. Whether you're in the Almdorf Königsleiten or the cozy forest area, you'll find many opportunities for a fun afternoon.
How about a round in the Hohe Tauern National Park, one of Europe's largest natural parks? Highly recommended in Hohe Tauern National Park is the route to Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe with a viewpoint overlooking the Pasterze Glacier or the hike to Wangenitzsee. Other routes not to be missed when visiting Königsleiten-Wald are the Wieserwald Circular Path and the Walder Route. Both routes are suitable for children and ideal for a few hours of fun.

The Hohe Tauern National Park extends to Krimml-Hochkrimml and offers something for everyone. Whether you're on vacation with children, your partner, or alone, you'll find hiking trails for every occasion here. The routes in Krimmler Achental, a high valley of Hohe Tauern National Park, are ideal for those who love mountain tours. The route to Krimmler Waterfall is also worth a try. Finally, we recommend the tour from Krimml to Hochkrimml. This route takes you through a breathtaking spruce forest over Binderberg to Gerlos Alpenstraße and is a real adventure for young and old.
