Mayrhofen is Austria’s largest verified family-friendly local skiing close to the massive Stubai glacier.
While many young or youngish visitors like it for its lively nightlife, it’s also an excellent family resort. It has highly regarded kindergartens and a fun pool with special children’s area. Fortunately, the liveliest of the nightlife in Mayrhofen is in a few very popular places, that families can easily avoid in such a large village.
Two lifts link Mayrhofen’s existing slopes with those of Lenersbach and Vorderlanersbach, increasing the local trails by around 40% and giving some much-needed longer runs. Most of the existing runs are very short, typically 300m/980ft to 400m/1310ft vertical. Intermediates who are willing to travel around on the free buses can have an enjoyable varied week visiting different ski areas on the Ziller valley lift ticket. There is an excellent glacier up at Hintertux. But if you plan to spend a lot of time at the glacier, consider staying in Lanersbach.
Despite lift improvements, this is still an inconvenient resort. The main lift station is at one end of town and you have to catch the lift down as well as up or end up a bus ride from town.
Après-Ski and Nightlife
The town of Mayerhofen has a number of bars lining up on the main road: For example the Harakiri Bar Mayerhofen- ´the steepest bar in Zillertal´. It invites for a nightcap and dancing until the crack of dawn accompanied by great DJs. Don´t be surprised if you walk right into a motto party. There´s never a shortage of live music at Mo´s Cafe and special events keep the apres-ski scene full of surprises. The Ice bar is another hot spot for apres-ski fans.
Dining and Restaurants
The wine & dine safari is a great possibility for gourmets that want to explore the restaurants of the holiday spot Mayrhofen-Hippach. Restaurant Mountain and Soul in Ramsau are part of this experience. Taste the so-called ´Soulkitchen´ at Hotel Stefanie in Hippach, Hotel Alpenblick, and Hotel Sieghard. They all serve the trendy and uncomplicated dishes. Every month you get to visit another restaurant during the summer months June, July, August, and September. Here you socialize with other gourmet-fans while you all enjoy culinary delights and Austria´s top awarded wines.
