One of Austria's best known resorts and just a short transfer from Innsbruck Airport. Mayrhofen lies at the end of the Zillertal in Tirol, where skiers and those seeking lively après-ski and nightlife are well catered for. While the UK may be known for some of the best outdoor fair weather music festivals, leave those wellies at home and rock out at Mayrhofen’s week-long Snowbombing event featuring live bands, DJs and ski and snowboard comps from 6th - 11th April 2015. There is plenty to keep you busy off the slopes by day, too,from snowshoe walks to shopping, sleigh rides and ice skating.
Nothing tastes better than sitting down to a great meal after a day out in the fresh air. In the Zillertal the recipe is simple - outstanding ski mixed with a cuisine reflective of this Tirolean region, but with new and innovative twists. An impressive alpine world of 489km snow sure pistes, accessible by 177 modern lifts, is the setting for a host of award-winning mountain lodges and huts showcasing the Zillertal’s burgeoning culinary scene and offering some of the finest cuisine on the mountains made from fresh, regional products. Dishes are inspired by the natural products of the Zillertal such as cheese made from pure pasture milk, bacon from the village butcher, and meat from local farms.
