Children & family
Many Zillertal vacationers come back every year. They are already regulars in the valley, often staying in the same guesthouse or in the same hotel over and over again. And there are those guests who have been coming to the Zillertal for generations. They have recognized that the valley has something to offer for young and old, young and old. Regardless of whether you have been a Zillertal fan for many years or are coming to us for the first time, you will quickly see that children and family are very important here. While some hotels have specialized in families, the little ones are welcome guests in almost all of the hotels. There are standard equipment for children (cot, high chair, etc.), and our own animation team ensures that everyone feels comfortable. Accommodation and menus suitable for children are a matter of course in the Zillertal. And the varied leisure program will make the hearts of the little guests beat faster. In addition, the Zillertal is well equipped with playgrounds. (Outdoor) swimming pools in almost every location and event highlights keep boredom out of the way.

The Adlerbühne and the sensory games on the Ahorn in Mayrhofen are also a must-see. The "Murmelland" on the Zilleraler Höhenstrasse is very popular with children.

Skiing has to be learned! The Zillertal ski schools are known for their quality. In every region of the Zillertal there are several ski schools that offer children's ski courses. In addition to learning the basic skiing techniques, the focus is on having fun. All ski areas offer significantly reduced ski pass prices for children and young people.
