HIGH SPIRITS in Tux-Finkenberg
The beautiful Tux-Finkenberg holiday region stretches from gentle meadows in Finkenberg at the entrance to the Tuxertal valley to the eternal ice of the Hintertux Glacier. There is plenty of scope here every day of the year for recreation, sports and adventure. Enjoy an unforgettable summer in the mountains in the villages of Finkenberg, Tux and Hintertux!
Enjoy an easy hike or a more challenging summit tour and feel the energy of the fresh, clear mountain air. Higher lying than the rest of the Zillertal valley, the hikers’ paradise of Tux-Finkenberg is a special source of “high spirits" with impressive mountain peaks, thunderous waterfalls, rushing mountain streams, crystal-clear lakes and fragrant mountain pastures. More than 350 km of hiking trails,120 km of mountain bike trails and 150 km of Nordic Walking trails are also part of the wide range of options. In addition, resplendent in white at the end of the valley, is the eternal ice of the Hintertux Glacier, Austria’s only all-year skiing resort.
HIKING FANS and MOUNTAIN CINEMA
The 422 km² large high mountain nature park Zillertaler Alps stretches from the Reichenspitzgruppe in the east to the Tuxer main ridge with the Olperer in the west and from Mayrhofen in the north to the Alpenhauptkamm in the south. Every day there are as many as three different themed hikes, each led by a Nature Park guide, to help you explore the impressive natural and cultural landscape. Our 3 summer cable cars, the hiking taxi and the free hiking bus make reaching the summit easy for those wanting a gentler hike.
E-mountain-bike rental is available at selected specialist sports shops in Tux-Finkenberg from EUR 29.00 per day!
The Hintertux Glacier, Austria's only all-year skiing resort, has up to 20 km of groomed ski slopes for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy during the summer months. The 15 m high Nature Ice Palace on the Hintertux Glacier is a unique jewel of nature. Visitors can admire frozen waterfalls, glittering ice stalactites and a glittering glacial lake. The Spannagelhöhle, the largest rock cave in the Central Alps, lies at the foot of the glacier tongue. This is another natural spectacle you must not miss. The panorama terrace at 3,250 m above sea level offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain peaks and the permanent ice. The terrace is easy to get too even for wheelchair users and families with baby buggies, with barrier free access from the underground car park at the Valley Station.
TUX Worlds comprise a wide range of fascinating themed trails that are a huge attraction for young and old alike. The Gorge World, Nature World, Animal World, Plant World, Water World, “Gletscherflohsafari” (Glacier Flea safari) and Glacier World take you on an adventurous journey of discovery through the Tuxertal valley. The Glacier Flea Park lying at 3,250 m is probably the highest playground in Europe. There is no chance of boredom here, what with the snow tire roundabout or a snowball fight in the middle of summer. In Pepi’s Kinderland, Pepi the 8-metre giant bear is a great place to climb and let off steam. The Kinderland will be even more fun this summer with two additional attractions: a low ropes course and a 15 m long slide are the new highlights. The 1,000 m² Playarena in Tux-Vorderlanersbach provides plenty of thrills and spills with its high ropes course, climbing wall, giant slides, trampoline park and lots more. If you need to cool down after so much fun and games, the Finkenberg open air pool is just the place.
