Lots of walks at all levels although rather easier on the Penken cablecar side. Weekly lift / bus pass excellent value giving a much wider range of well marked walks a little away from Mayrhofen itself. During Summer high season the popular time buses (say 8 - 10 and return 3 - 6) can be very overfull despite the companies... More

Mayrhofen and the valley has extensive range of walks of varying levels. Something to suit everyone. Majority are well marked. Most scenic routes are accessed via cable cars. Worth buying the inclusive cable car, bus and train card. Also enables access to six outdoor swimming pools in the valley.

The alps here are outstanding. There are lifts to help you get to altitude quickly if you desire, or you can readily ascend from the valley. The huts in the alps are there for overnight accommodations, or a beer/snack.

as I already read on Tripadvisor, good maps are welcome. Especially the walks from the two local cable companies (Ahorn and Penken) are not so well indicated; we did other very nice walks farther away (in the Tuxertal and in the Zillergrund) and they were better marked So you 'd better buy a good map from the tourist office (although...

There a lots of walks around the Mayrhofen area, both at valley level and up in the mountains - something for everyone! A possible improvement would be to add distances to the signage, at the moment they are expressed in time to walk them. Some of the walks need the signs checking - we walked down from the Ahorn lift,... More

There are a huge number of trails for walking, running, hiking and biking around Mayrhofen - both at town level and in the mountains - with something to suit all abilities and interests. All those which we encountered were well signposted and kept in very good condition. Stunning scenery almost in every direction.

This was my second hiking holiday to Austria and I am hooked on the place. I do a lot of hiking in the UK but have to say I am so impressed with the way marking and directional signs on the paths. GPS and map hardly come out of my rucksack.

I can recommend the walk to the Alpine Hut on the Alphorn. There is a lot to do when walking in the alps

The area is perfect for walking and has something for everyone, on the flat or up a mountain. Do be aware that the walking map is limited and the sign posts not always consistent. We walked down from the Penken to Mayrhofen but the Mayrhofen signs disappeared and there were only signs for Finkenberg. We did eventually pick another up... More

If you want to walk rather than stroll buy the walkers map E6.5 from tourist office - the free walkers route map is ok as a guide but is not enough once you're out on the mountainside especially if you are crossing snow fields where the path markers are hidden
