Looking for sensational views, picturesque winter landscapes, and a rustic retreat while winter hiking in the Alps? Then the Ahorn winter hiking trail is just right for you. The one-hour winter hike begins at the Ahornbahn mountain station. From here, continue to the Zillertal viewing platform and the White Lounge igloo village, the ideal place for a tasty drink and an informative guided tour. Afterwards, return down to the valley station of the 8 SB Ahorn – the ride with the chairlift is included in the pedestrian lift ticket!
The one-hour scenic hike begins at the top station of the combined lift and leads to the Penkenjoch and back again. But before you return to the valley, you can relax on the loungers on the sun terrace and enjoy the sun on your face.
The mountaineering village at 999 metres in the Zemmgrund is the ideal starting point for winter discovery tours. Most of its hiking trails belong to the protected Zillertal Alps Nature Park and have been awarded the Mountain Trail Seal of Approval by the Province of Tyrol.
