Alpine joy in summer: Holidays in Tux / Hintertux
As soon as you open the panoramic window of your hotel in Hintertux, you can indulge in a number of truly awe-inspiring Alpine highlights – among them the breathtaking "Olperer Glacier" at 3500 meters above sea level, the splendid "Hoher Riffler" at 3230 meters altitude or the mighty "Gefrorene Wand" at 3288 meters, a real challenge also for extreme alpinists. The holiday villages of Tux and Hintertux, embedded in one of Zillertal's secluded side valleys, are renowned for their outstanding Alpine scenery. Mountain exploration is the order of the day: countless mountain bike trails, numerous nordic walking routes and – of course – an infinite variety of classic walking and hiking trails are spread all over the holiday region. Culture fans should not miss out on a visit to the area's quaint mountain farmhouses, some of them dating back to the 17th century. A must for families is the action-packed "Glacier Flea Park" at 3500 meters altitude, Europe's highest playground for children. Tux also makes a heaven for those in search of pleasant recreation: several healing springs gush out of the soil in charming Hintertux, the valley's uppermost village and therefore Europe's highest thermal bath.
