As a non skiier I can highly recommend Mayrhofen for non-skiing activities. It's a fairly big town with plenty if shops and restaurants and enough different walks to give you something different to do everyday. I love this place and will definitely be back again

It was wonderful to get out in the fresh air and enjoy the hiking trails. There is a surprisingly good cafe nearby that offers libations and food. The trails are fairly easy although steep in some places.

Scenic views as one walks from village to village looking down on the valley. Generally an easy trail, but be prepared for some steep climbs along the way.

Walks on either side of the valley up Ahorn or Penken cable cars. Valley bottom walks, it's all there if you want it.

I love hiking which is why I chose Mayrhofen. The routes were excellent and easy to find. There are good routes on the penken and ahorn moutains (the ahorn summit trail was out of this world). I only done a few routes but I am...More

The Tourist Board provide excellent maps and information. Plenty of public transport to get to the start of your walk.
