Summer vacation in the Zillertal, in the Zillertal Arena

One reason for this is the breathtaking mountain scenery. The numerous activities available to every visitor are another. Whether it's an enjoyable hike, an extensive bike tour on the mountain or in the valley, a hearty meal in a rustic alpine hut, or fun and action for the entire family - there's something for everyone in the Zillertal Arena. There are also many highlights for action fans! The Arena Coaster, the Arena Skyliner, Flying Fox, Single Trails, climbing trails, water adventures like rafting and canyoning, paragliding, and much more!

The Holiday Village of Zell am Ziller

Despite its relatively small size, the village of Zell am Ziller ranks among the most important of the Zillertal. Many boards and offices of importance for the entire valley are seated here, e.g. the deanery, the district court, two notary's offices and the district forest inspector. Zell is also an education centre with seven different school types. The central location and the good private and public transport links turned Zell into the "Heart of the Ziller Valley" and, as a result, into an important economical centre, where tourism has an important role to play.  In addition, trade and small to medium-sized businesses have their place in Zell. Over 160 companies and almost as many private landlords work here and manage to secure many jobs that way. Exemplary work is done by the oldest Tyrolean private brewery, founded around 1500. The name "Zeller Bräu" is inseperable from the "Gauderfest", a festival taking place on the first weekend in May, a unique celebration of Spring that attracts countless visitors each year. 

Winter sport lovers can find attractive ski areas and modern lifts taking them to the Zillertal Arena - one of the ten largest continuous ski areas in Austria. Beautiful hike paths are tempting the wanderer on relaxing trips in the well-cared-for natural environment of the village. A large-scale leisure park offers sport lovers and those in need of relaxation ample opportunities to be active throughout the entire year. People interested in history and culture would do well to take a closer look at our local heritage museum and an exhibition goldmine.

On an area of more than 45,000 m2 you will find every possible leasure facility: outdoor pools, slides, adventure playground, two beach volleyball courts, outdoor and indoor tennis courts, crazy golf, bowling lanes, fun court (volleyball, streetball, basketball), and finally the Garden of the Senses.

The leisure park in Zell offers many options for tennis lovers. On the 3 indoor courts with their two glass fronts you can enjoy a fantastic view of Zell and its surroundings even while playing. During the outdoor season, 4 outdoor courts and a tennis training wall are ready to be used. Have something to eat and a well-deserved drink in the café-restaurant with a panorama view of the Zilertal mountains!

Cattle Drives

The last September Sunday is the day the cows return from numerous alpine pastures to their cowsheds.

The return of healthy cows is marked with a great festival. Farmers drive their decorated cattle back home to their farms. They are celebrated by countless guests and locals.

The festival of the cattle drive is celebrated extensively. Fun and entertainment with Zillertal music, farmers' market, "Schuhplattler" folklore groups, and much more. At the farmers' market you can experience old Zillertal craft and art, and there is a lot of traditional food to enjoy, from Zillertal and Tyrolean specialities such as "Zillertaler Krapfen" and "Melchermuas", and you can buy schnapps, honey, and cheeses directly from the farmers who make them, as a special souvenir to take home and remember the festival by.
