My tips for the region
The “Scheulingwald” is a protected part of the Tyrolean landscape and is an enrichment for the village due to its invigorating effect and is of great importance for the market town of Mayrhofen in terms of its recreational value. It extends over 14.0 km, from the district of “Kumbichl” to “Hollenzen” and represents an important retreat area for the native animal and plant communities.
Well-maintained and signposted hiking trails invite you to take a walk, “Bankerl” offer you the opportunity to linger, rest and recharge your batteries in the beautiful nature.
For example, you have the option of combining a walk with a visit to the Zillertal alpine dairy and learn about the production of hay milk and hay-milk cheese there, simply visit the show farm or enjoy entertainment and culinary delights at “Cheese with Music”.
My hiking tip:
If you like walking uphill, you can hike to the forest chapel “Brandberger Kapellal” in about 20 – 25 minutes.
There you have a magnificent view over the entire municipal area. Afterwards you can turn back or visit the “Stoaner Kegal”, a mountain inn with a wonderful panoramic view.
There is also a launch site for paragliders and is also the starting point for a mountain tour to the “Kolmhaus” and the “Kolm”,
If you don’t want to go that far, you have the option of continuing from “Kapellal” to “Brandberg”, a neighbouring community” or via “Pignellen” into the Zillergrund and through the gorge via “Kumbichl” back to Mayrhofen.
