Mayrhofen is a picturesque village in the Ziller Valley, surrounded by lush green pastures and boasting a stunning backdrop of majestic mountain peaks. Our touring programme takes us to The Achensee, where we enjoy a boat trip on the sparkling, clear waters of Tyrol’s largest lake, known as ‘The Tyrolean Sea’. We enjoy a steam train ride on the nostalgic narrow gauge railway from Mayrhofen to Jenbach and visit the Krimml Waterfalls, the highest in Austria and set in the Hohe Tauern National Park. We cross the scenic Gerlos Mountain Alpine Road, visit fashionable Kitzbuhel and travel to Rattenberg, ‘The Glass town of Tyrol’. Situated on the River Inn, this charming little town offers many craft and gift shops selling the local glassware. Mayrhofen is a paradise for walkers, and we allow ample leisure time to explore the walking paths, or simply watch the world go by from one of the many street cafes in Mayrhofen.
