    The Zillertal Alps extend from the Austrian provinces of SalzburgerLand and Tirol (where the lion’s share of the mountain range is located) to South Tyrol in Italy. Spread over such a large area, the Zillertal Alps have everything on offer you might expect from the Alps: From grazing cows on soft meadows to icy glaciers that allow for skiing all year round.

    Must-See:

    Krimmler Waterfalls: Crashing down over 385 metres (1,263 ft) in cascades, these are Europe’s highest waterfalls – a sight to behold. When visiting the waterfalls, be sure to stop into the WasserWelten (“Worlds of Water”) Krimml as well: An interactive exhibition about water in all its forms, it’s the perfect place for children to play and learn at the same time.
