Many excursion destinations around the Zillertal

Thanks to our ideal location in the heart of the Zillertal, Apartment Villa Haidacher is the perfect starting point to head out on excursions in all directions:

Zillertaler Höhenstraße

The Zillertaler Höhenstraße is one of Austria's most beautiful Alpine roads. It starts right at Villa Haidacher and leads up to an elevation of 2020 meters. You can take your own car or the public bus to Melchboden, or you can ride your mountain bike on a loop trail with a descent via Hippach or Aschau. Look forward to gorgeous panoramic views of the entire Zillertal including the Zillertal Alps. Beautiful hill farms and mountain inns invite you to stop for refreshments, or you can start out on one of the numerous mountain hikes, for ex. to the Kristallhütte, Wedelhütte, or Rastkogelhütte.

Hintertuxer Glacier with Nature's Ice Palace

The Hintertux Glacier has probably existed for more than 2 million years. During the last 11,000 years, the size of the Hintertux Glacier was about the same size it is today - with small and larger fluctuations. On the gondola ride from the Sommerberg to the Tuxer Fernerhaus, visitors can still see the impressive moraines from this period. Marvel at the magical world of ice inside the glacier on a tour through Nature's Ice Palace. Unique insight into eternal ice!
