Springtime in Zillertal

It´s turning so green...

When the increasingly warm rays of sunshine begin to melt the snow cap high up on the peaks and the first colorful messengers of spring begin to light up the valley below, the mountain world of the Zillertal becomes radiant in its brand-new splendour. Lush green alpine meadows, fresh forests and the vivid harbingers of springtime don't only lend a new lustre to the countryside, they also reinvigorate mind and body with the wonderful freshness of nature. Whether you are hiking, mountain biking, walking, ambling along or day-dreaming - the springtime air is more precious than gold!

Spring Highlight: Every year on the 1st weekend in May, we hold the traditional Gauder Fest - Austria's biggest spring and folk-costume festival with a whole series of different attractions. The festival gets going with the ceremonial tapping of the beer keg and the so-called "Gambrinus" speech. The highlight of the Gauder Fest is the traditional procession on Gauder Sunday: featuring heritage groups and musicians sporting colorful folk costumes, historic coaches and floats, horse- and ox-drawn carriages, this has developed over the years into the biggest event of its kind in all of Austria.
