Nestled in the Ziller Valley in the heart of the Austrian Tyrol, the Mayrhofen resort has become the traditional meeting place for skiers from Austria and across the world who love great skiing. The village is on a human scale, sitting at 650m in elevation with its area climbing up to 2,500m. Fans of snow sports – whether skiing or snowboarding – will find their pleasure here, in a ski resort in sync with nature. Welcome to Mayrhofen...
A village both authentic and modern
Mayrhofen is lively throughout the year, thanks to a tourist programme for each season and its approximately 3,900 residents as well. The Tyrolean resort has been able to preserve the authentic character of its valley village through its church and chalets, and also by continually responding to its growing tourist clientele through facilities integrated into the landscape and into Austrian culture. The array of lodging and services can suit every wallet and every expectation. For example, families will find an ideal solution for children with a daycare that takes in children starting at 3 months of age.
In front of you, the wall
A myth, a legend that intrigues and frightens. Harakiri: the Austrian resort decided to bestow the name of this Japanese form of suicide on its most famous piste, renowned for having the country's steepest incline at 78%. Over the years, the 150m of this veritable wall has turned into a cult run. The steepest slope in Austria has inspired advertisers and video enthusiasts, who delight in filming skiers' incessant falls or the grooming machines at an almost vertical angle. For thrill-seekers or those who are simply curious: an opportunity that can't be missed!
Everything you need for a good time
The Mayrhofen resort has been able to diversify itself throughout the seasons to offer those who love the spot more than just skiing: there's an ice rink, a pool, wellness centres and hiking paths, for both summer and winter. The activities aren't limited just to après-ski; rather there's a full and varied programme for those who want to put their skis aside from time to time! Evenings are just as animated as daytime: a variety of restaurants, bars and nightclubs welcome those of you who want to celebrate, in a cosmopolitan setting. It's full of life!
