Zillertal experience: FügenGuided walks and hikes, a variety of events and activities for children, and weekly “Tiroler Abend” evening shows including local dance and music performances – Fügen in the Ziller Valley offers it all! The economic center of the Zillertal’s first tourist areas developed on the sediment of the Rischbach stream. While mining was a major source of income back in the early days, the focus today is on winter sports: There are wide and well-prepared slopes for downhill skiing, meandering tracks for cross-country skiing, cleared winter walking trails, and several ice rinks. Summer holidays in Fügen offer an unparalleled mountain experience at moderate temperatures. Explore the fascinating Zillertal world of mountains on foot or by (mountain) bike! The Spieljochbahn is the gateway to Spieljoch, a paradise for families who love walking and hiking and appreciate stunning views. Also visit Austria’s highest mine that is open to the public.
Outstanding skiing at SpieljochThe small Spieljoch ski area is easily accessible from the very center of Fügen. It offers some 40 kilometers of slopes especially suitable for novice skiers and for families with young children. The seven-kilometer top-to-bottom slope with snow-making machinery is favored by snowboarders and ambitious skiers. Free ski buses operate to and from the neighboring Hochfügen-Hochzillertal ski area, which offers even more variety and challenge.
Those who want to enjoy the picture-postcard winter scenery at a more leisurely pace may join a guided snow-shoe tour or winter walk. In addition, there are about 50 kilometers of cross-country ski tracks, all of them perfectly prepared, meandering in a sunny basin between the villages of Fügen and Kaltenbach. The Erlebnis-Therme Zillertal spa in Fügen makes for an unparalleled bad-weather option for the whole family: There is a quiet sauna and spa area for adults, and an adventure pool with bubble cave, fountains, Lazy River, flood shower, and giant bouncy castle for young visitors.
