A comfortable journey is possible with thefree ski bus at the nearby ski bus stop (150 meters from the chalet).

Discover the winter magic through snow-covered forests, fields and untouched landscape. Find the peace and relaxation you need here. Alternatively, the Zillertal also offers numerous winter hiking trails, where you can experience the unique natural scenery up close. NEW!
