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.
We walked from just beyond Zell am Ziller to Mayrhofen along the river valley trail - about 7 miles in total. It was a very easy to follow walk and not at all strenuous - pretty flat. Lots of people were walking and cycling along...More
Our first time hiking in the Alps, but compares quite favorably to any hike we've done in Rock Mountains. We took the lifts up 3-4000 ft to start our hikes and went up from there. Great views and well maintained trails, but don't expect to...More
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

We wore sturdy walking shoes though other folk wore boots. We (both 60+) did up to 15km per day on easy and medium trails both in the valley and up the mountains and were fine. Buy a good map and you will have a good idea of the terrain, ascents/descents etc. Everything is very well signposted and there are lots of gravel type paths.
The one thing I'd strongly advise is take a pair of walking poles if doing any ascents/descents. Makes it so much easier.
Oh and always carry a raincoat and a second layer. We got caught out by the drop in temperature between the valley and up the mountains.
Get a Zillertal Activ card - well worth it. You get a good map as part of the pack and then more detailed individual maps at each cable car station.
Recommended walks? Edelhütte at Ahorn or several at Penkel - maybe try the one that ends up down through the meadows to Vorderlanersbach. And visit one of the reservoirs and Hintertux glacier.
We were there for two weeks and there were lots we didn't get doing. Must go back!
