Call 01242 547 705 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Located in the heart of the Zillertal arena, in one of Europe's most treasured winter retreats, Austria, Zell am Ziller is a friendly, family orientated year round resort that has often been overlooked in favour of the Arlberg to her west in the past. It is the gateway village to the Zillertal Arena which is a picturesque valley that stretches through from family friendly Zell am Ziller to the bright lights of the party resort of Mayrhofen, recognisable with its annual "Snowbombing" festival every April. In total the Zillertal Arena offers over 620 km of skiing up to altitudes of over 2,500m. With the majority of pistes positioned 1,500m and above and with uncanny snowmaking abilities, this area is one of Austria's most snow-sure. What’s more, it’s well served by numerous high speed lifts ensuring good ground is easily and seamlessly covered during your stay. Combine this with Austria's renowned hospitality and charm, fabulous mountain thoroughfare, and the recent completion of 6 brand new luxury lodges, and we couldn’t be more excited about the introduction of this area to our existing Austrian portfolio. Being under an hour transfer from Innsbruck airport, Zell am Ziller is without a doubt the place to go this season.
