Our region

Zell am Ziller

With ca. 2,200 residents and 2.4 km² total land area, Zell im Zillertal represents the heart of the Ziller Valley. The village lies at an elevation of 575 metres above sea level and serves both as the administrative and educational hub of the Zillertal. "Let's head for the mountains!" is very much the motto of Zell am Ziller.

In winter, the Zillertal Arena is the biggest ski area in the Zillertal and we are just a 4-minute walk away from all the action. Come experience 143 km of ski slopes, 52 lifts, numerous alpine huts, snow bars and après-ski pubs!

In summer, the Zillertal Arena is "The Valley of One Thousand Mountains".

Everyone here finds their own special mountain adventure: Whether that be hiking, mountaineering or along one of our numerous mountain-bike trails, or perhaps paragliding or simply taking a relaxing stroll. The 45,000 m² amusement park enriches your family experience in Zell im Zillertal even more.

Cultural events and countless sights are also certain to captivate you as well!

Zillertal

The Zillertal is the broadest and best-known valley in Tyrol. Spanning an area of some 1,098 km² - in other words, a ninth of entire Northern Tyrol - it lies in the very heart of Tyrol. Only 40 km east of Innsbruck, it extends out from close to Jenbach and the Inntal valley, for a total length of 32 kilometres in a virtually straight line to the south.

In contrast to other Tyrolean side valleys, the  Zillertal does not have to ascend over an initial valley tier, climbing only slightly on its way from Strass (523 metres) to Mayrhofen (633 m), where it then divides into the Tuxer Tal, the Zemmgrund, the Stillupgrund and Zillergrund. (Smaller source valleys are known here as "Gründe"). Branching off from the northern valley are the unpopulated Märzengrund and Finsinggrund, as does the Gerlostal near Zell am Ziller.

At Strass, the first town in the Zillertal, the Ziller - a feeder river from a glacial stream in the Zillertal Alps on the border to South Tyrol and Salzburg - empties as a tributary into the Inn, which, at this point at least, flows at a very sedate pace. Until the 16th century, this was the point where Bavarian, Tyrolean and Salzburg sovereignty all came face to face.

This border remains visible to this day, with the Ziller separating the diocese of Innsbruck - formerly Brixen - and Salzburg, a fact reflected in the colours of the church steeples: on the left of the Ziller, the steeples are a radiant red, while to the right, in contrast, they are green, a symbol of their membership in the Salzburg archdiocese.

Just like the people of the Zillertal, their language is also full of life and richly facetted. The dialect is quite different from that of the Lower Inn Valley, representing a conglomeration of dialects from the Inntal, South Tyrol, Bavaria and Salzburg. Many ancient sayings, rhymes and songs remain alive and well here in the Zillertal.

Tyrol

The "Land in the Mountains", as Tyrol was still known in the Middle Ages, is an El Dorado for winter sports fans and lovers of the mountains. The Olympic Games in Innsbruck, the Ski World Championships in St. Anton am Arlberg, the Hahnenkamm Races in  Kitzbühel and the Air & Style Snowboard Contest in Seefeld were and are some of our major wintertime highlights

Countless climbing and hiking routes, farm and arts & crafts museums, idyllic village life, the Crystal Worlds in Wattens and the Innsbruck Summer of Dance, guarantee that your Tyrolean vacation will be an experience to remember.

 

From a tourism perspective, Tyrol consists of 36 regions, each one of which boasts its own very unique natural or cultural feature, be that a mountain, a lake or a town. From A to Z – from the Achensee to the Zugspitze – each special highlight of our province is right where it belongs: in the midst of its very own region
