Winter holidays in Tuxertal - always a special experience

The winter in the Tuxertal is a very special one due to the optimal altitude of the valley: snow in the valley and snow security through the glacier ski area Hintertuxer Gletscher guarantee great winter experiences for the whole family.

The Tuxertal offers great ski areas, floodlit toboggan runs, extensive family offers, winter hiking trails, groomed cross-country ski trails and much more.

A winter day also includes really good food. There are more than 30 ski huts and over 50 restaurants to choose from in the Tux-Finkenberg holiday region. Relaxed in a deckchair or on the sun terrace with a panorama of the Alps, traditional and tasteful in the inn or fine dining in the gourmet restaurant - there is something for every taste here. In the Tux Valley, we attach great importance to the processing of local products, natural foods and regional products in the kitchen. Zillertal delicacies such as Kaspressknödel, Gröstl, Käsespätzle, Brettljause, Kaiserschmarren, ... taste particularly fresh and delicious.
