Excursions in and around the Zillertal
There are many ways of spending your leisure time in the Zillertal: from adventure worlds through thermal spas, gold and silver mines to museums and worlds of crystal. And families with children can find everything they need in the Zillertal too, with many attractions and adventure playgrounds to get any child going.
The Zillertaler Höhenstrasse is one of the most beautiful Alpine roads in Austria, offering visitors a beautiful dream-like panorama of the Zillertal Alps. And there's no shortage of culinary highs here either, thanks to the many snack bars and mountain inns along this Alpine road.
Brindlang natural water playground
The new natural experience playground in Mayrhofen is made of wood and stone, with many wooden flumes, known as the 'Brindlang', channelling, pooling and damming up the water over the whole area. With a sand playground and water-driven mill wheel to complete the package and get kids' hearts beating faster. In the middle of the Scheulingwald, this new playground is an ideal destination for the whole family.
Schwaz silver mine
Especially when it's really hot in summer, there's a really great way to cool off, in the silver mine, where it's always 12° Celsius. And the silver mine at Schwaz is still the right choice if the weather turns bad, and is an excursion for the whole family. It never rains underground!
There are falconry displays at 14.00 on Saturdays to Thursdays from mid-June to mid-October (not Fridays), and the Ahorn eagle centre is open daily from 09.30 to 11.30 to visit free of charge (not Wednesdays).
