Make a mountain friend happy!
Every Thursday from 2 July, between 05:00 and 06:30 a.m., the Ahornbahn, Austria’s largest gondola, takes early birds up to the Ahorn Plateau, where they can enjoy the beautiful sunrise from the Zillertal viewing platform over a nice cup of hot tea. As you watch the sun’s rays rise above the peaks of the Zillertal Alps and slowly turn from bluish purple to bright pink to warm gold, you’ll realize that getting up so early was well worth the effort. This fascinating spectacle of nature briefly gives a mystical aura to the mountains of Mayrhofen. There’s no better way to start the day!
Our tip for all mountaineers: Start your hike to the Ahornspitze or the Aschaffenburger Höhenweg early in the morning!
