Away from the slopes - Tobogganing & Cross-Country-Skiing in the Zillertal Arena


The toboggan run on the Gerlosstein is the longest one in the Zillertal and is located right in the Zillertal Arena only a stone’s throw away from Ferienhotel Sonnenhof. The Gerlosstein lift on the Hainzenberg can be reached with only a 10-minute ride on the toboggan bus or by car. From here, you can easily and comfortably reach the start of the run at an elevation of 1,650 m by gondola. The best prepared toboggan run is floodlit until 1 am. A stop for refreshments in the cozy, inviting atmosphere of a hut is also a must. At the valley station, you can rent toboggans from 2 professional providers.

Awaiting you in the Zillertal are a total of 14 toboggan runs with a total length of 45 km. This includes a few romantic natural toboggan runs, which you can hike to in the moonlight through idyllic forests before dashing back down into the valley.

Cross-country skiing

When you glide through the glistening winter landscape in the Zillertal on cross-country skis, your worries will disappear in no time at all and you can truly live in the moment. Not only does cross-country skiing bring happiness, but it also activates all muscle groups of your body and boosts your health.

The Zillertal offers a total of 125 km of cross-country trails. If there is not enough snow in the valley, you can head to the higher trails in the Gerlostal and Tuxertal.

You can discover the fascination of cross-country skiing on the Bräufeld trail, the Arena trail, the Zellbergeben trail, the Museums trail, and the Bäckenfeld trail, which is floodlit until 9 pm, in the nearby surroundings of the Sonnenhof.


Winter and the 4*S Ferienhotel Sonnenhof have much more to offer, so: jump right into it!
