Our cable cars are the gateway to unobstructed views of the Hohe Tauern National Park. From here you can walk across lush meadows or go on mountain tours in the Kitzbühel Alps. Fill up on milk and cheese in the huts and lodges along the way.
Everyone can learn how to yodel
Austria's first "Yodel Hiking Trail" is located in Wald-Königsleiten, on the Gerlospass, and can be reached via Zillertal or Salzachtal.
Hiking between eight interactive stations – such as a massive, walk-in cowbell, and the largest alpine horn in Europe – you’ll hear audio recordings of simple yodels, which can be easily copied. First, you'll hear the entire yodel; then the 1st and 2nd voices that make up the traditional songs performed separately. Sing whichever voice you prefer, belting away to the hills. The Yodel trail connects you from the top station of the village’s cable car, via Larmachalm, back to Königsleiten, and can be visited by anyone for free.
Varies based on the cable car's operating hours (tel. 06564 8212).
Since the trail is located 2,000 meters above sea level, please bring along good shoes and warm clothes.

Fun over the water and a bird’s eye view to boot 2,300 metres above sea level
The new flying device in Königsleiten is just the thing for adventure-seeking, fun-loving, adrenaline junkies. Higher! Faster! Further! The GipfelLiner Königsleiten, a kind of flying fox/zip line, offers even more fun and action, complete with an unparalleled bird’s eye view, for guests and visitors in the Zillertal Arena. But what makes the GipfelLiner truly unique is that it crosses the Königsleiten reservoir at an altitude of 2,300 metres above sea level!
With the GipfelLiner you soar over the reservoir attached to a 430-metre long steel rope. Between the 3-metre high starting platform at an impressive altitude of 2,300 metres and the landing platform at the end you cover an elevation drop of no fewer than 65 metres. An over-the-water experience for young and old alike that you’ll remember for a long time to come – with an adrenaline rush thrown in for good measure!
July till September
