Zillertal Arena
Zell - Gerlos - Königsleiten - Hochkrimml

Zillertal Arena - Zell - Gerlos


The impressive mountain panoramas of the Zillertal Arena Region as well as the countless recreational opportunities in both winter and summer will definitely keep boredom at bay. The Zillertal Arena caters to guests young and old– perhaps that’s why they return to the region year after year. Here you find the most important facts about the Zillertal Arena and its attractions:

Winter

Winter

The Zell - Gerlos Zillertal Arena region in the Zillertal is named after the largest ski area in the valley. But even off the slopes there’s a lot this region has to offer in winter.

The Zillertal Arena stretches from Zell up to Gerlos and over to Wald-Königsleiten and Krimml-Hochkrimml. The region’s 52 ski lifts access 143 kilometers of ski slopes, and you can reach the Arena from numerous entry points. Some of the amenities the Arena offers are a giant action park with a Bagjump, snow park, fun park, two ski movie routes, speed-check routes, photo points, a large children’s ski zone and children’s restaurants.

Cross-country skiers, snowshoers and hikers will enjoy the challenge of cross-country skiing at altitude and traversing the high winter hiking trails.

No sledding enthusiast should miss the longest rodelbahn (sledding course) in the Zillertal! Riding the Gerlossteinbahn (Gerlosstein gondola) up to 1650 meters is just the first step. From this starting point the sledding course runs some 7 kilometers with clear sledding to the bottom. Of course, the route takes you past some cozy lodges if you want to stop en route for a snack or warm drink. Sleds are available for rental in shops located at the base station and the course is illuminated until 1 a.m.

There are also outstanding sledding courses in Gerlos, Wald, Königsleiten, Krimml and Hochkrimml, as well as an ice skating rink in Zell and ice climbing in Königsleiten.

The season finale of the Zillertal Arena will be dominated by traditional dress - 'dirndls' and 'lederhosen'. Noticeably warmer temperatures, perfect firn snow and endless sun make springtime skiing something special. On the last weekend of the season there will also be a special highlight and treat for all fans of the traditional national dress - anyone dressed for the slopes in a dirndl or lederhosen will get a free day ski pass for the Zillertal Arena.

Zell is a Fasching (carnival) stronghold in the Zillertal. Among the festivities are a Fasching assembly attend by townspeople, a Fasching parade through Zell and the town’s own Royal Fasching couple.

Summer

Mountains…as far as the eye can see! Aside from the breathtaking scenery of the mountains surrounding the Zillertal Arena, the region is also packed with plenty of action and adventure.

Whether you spend the night in Zell, Zellberg, Rohrberg, Hainzenberg, Gerlos or Gerlosberg, you are among the mountains of the Zillertal Arena. The gondolas Rosenalmbahn (Zell), Gerlossteinbahn (Hainzenberg) and Isskogelbahn (Gerlos) all operate in summer, even the Königsleitner Dorfbahn (cable car) runs hourly.


Of course in the summer hiking is king, and the region hosts a 400-kilometer-long network of hiking trails from Zillertal to Salzburg. Nordic walkers and hikers will certainly get their fill traversing the expansive valley and mountain trails.


There are more than 40 traditional lodges, mountain inns and snack stands along the trails of the Zillertal Arena where hikers are invited to take a break, relax, dine and recharge their batteries. Adventurers and ‘extreme’ sports fans should try the Arena Skyliner in Gerlosstein, an extension of the Flying Fox. This ‘zip line’ over the Gerlosstein region is 739 meters long with passengers travelling at speeds of up to 50 km/hour.


Another adventure in speed is the Arena Coaster, an alpine slide located at the base of the Rosenalmbahn (gondola) in Zell. The newly-constructed base station area includes a modern adventure playground and a café, so while children climb, swing and slide, parents can watch in comfort. The café is a great vantage point to watch the brave master the Bag Jump .


On the mountain pastures of the Rosenalm, high above the village of Zell am Ziller, there is a magical realm of fantasy – the Spruce Tree Castle. Guests, both children and ‘kids at heart’, can now enjoy a world of fun and adventure clambering on the climbing tower, sliding down the tower chute and ‘working’ in the crane tower. The breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains is best enjoyed from the 18 metre-high viewing tower. In addition to a vast water-play area and an adventure playground, budding little builders can carry on the work of the Spruce Sprites in the builders’ hut and crane. A special tip: There is the possibility to have a barbecue from 11 a.m. until about 2 p.m.


Zell is also home to an expansive 45,000 square-meter recreation area. Amenities include an outdoor swimming pool (with lap pool), whirlpool, giant slide and children's pool. In addition, the recreation area offers an expansive children’s playground, beach volleyball, tennis courts, enclosed mini-football pitch and mini-golf. There’s surely something in the recreation area to entertain every age group.


Gerlos is an ideal location for those wishing to escape the hot summer temperatures in the valley. The air temperature in Gerlos is quite pleasant and the Durlaßboden reservoir provides relief from the heat. The fresh spring water warms up in the summer months to a comfortable 21° C. You can surf or sail or learn how to as Durlaßboden reservoir (at 1400 meters altitude) offers the highest sailing and surfing school in Austria. Of course you can also just swim or relax in a paddle boat or the large grassy sunbathing area. Children will enjoy the playground and families can take advantage of the grilling area for a barbeque.


There’s also a 12-meter high climbing tower in Gerlos and a new elevated rope course with 20 stations as well as Erlebnisgarten Riederklamm (climbing area at Rieder Gorge) which includes the Flying Fox ‘zip line’ course.


Another holiday experience you’ll long remember is the Königsleitner Jodelwanderweg (yodeling/hiking trail). With the motto "anyone can yodel" the trail offers stations with various experiences for hikers, who will be surprised how quickly they become real yodelers!


Another great experience is a day trip to neighboring Salzburg to visit the Krimmler Wasserfälle (waterfalls), including the new ‘Water Worlds of Wonder’. Krimmler Wasserfälle are the largest waterfalls in all of Europe and the only natural monument in Austria awarded with the distinguished ‘European Diploma of Protected Areas’ - something every traveler to Austria and Europe should surely include on their list of sites to visit.


Incidentally, both Zell and Gerlos offer the Familiennest-Kinderprogramm (children’s program) in the summer.
