Mount Ahorn

Unique moments of pleasure and joy

Early in the morning, visitors can savour the special experience of the sun rising behind the 3,000-metre peaks of the Zillertal Valley. After a delicious Sunrise Breakfast, you'll be ready for all the activities that the mountain has to offer.

For example, there's the LeisureTrail Ahorn that leads past four viewing platforms, Lake AhornSee and AhornBachl Stream and is even suitable for baby buggies. Another highlight is the Eagle's Stage Ahorn  with the FalknerOase at the reservoir.
