We’ve been going to Mayrhofen for a decade, when we first went there, the latter part of the lifts were the old fashioned chairs with the pull over bars. Since then the whole cable car system has been massively improved. What a difference. Since our...More

Fantastic Dopplemeyer Gondola with wonderful view of Zillertal and south to the high peaks. The gondola opens up a range of hiking opportunities along the ridge top towards the Finkenberg alm and beyond towards Rastkogel. Lots of huts for refreshments. Go early to beat the...More

There are lots of trails to explore, with small alpine lakes with glorious views. Sit and enjoy a drink or a meal on the terrace of one of the restaurants . Climb up the Wanglespitze, and if you have time, continue up the Rastkogel.

The cable car ride was worth the price of the tickets, though the skiing was wonderful in the morning. Nice long easy slopes for the novice, though they became quite crowded in the afternoon. We were skiing Christmas day, so I imagine most skiers had...More

My first ever trip on a gondola lift up a mountain and so I was a little apprehensive. It was great, modern, easy to use and gave us access to wonderful hikes with fab views.

Don't know about parking because we were staying in Mayrhofen and walked but there was no snow at all in July, so I doubt there would be in October. The Hintertux Glacier has snow 365 days a year. We went there by bus from... More
