During the Winter months we visit a campsite in Zell am Ziller which is just 15 minutes away from Mayrhofen. It is a lovely family run site called Camping Hofer that caters for everyone. With camping pitches as well as apartments and b&b rooms there are lots of options to choose from. The onsite restaurant is another bonus, it’s reasonably priced and they serve the best pizzas in the valley! With facilities for your snowboard & ski equipment it means you always have warm and dry boots in the morning and somewhere safe to keep your boards & skis overnight. There is a ski resort in the village called Zillertal Arena which is easy to get to as there is a bus stop right outside the campsite. The railway station is only a short walk away too so you can jump on the train to Mayrhofen really easily. For the people staying in caravans there is a toilet & shower block with indoor washing up sinks too. If you want to stay somewhere close to a resort but in a quieter setting then this is the place for you. We love the location as it’s really peaceful yet we are only ten minutes away from the Horberg gondola that takes you up to the Mayrhofen resort. Zell am Ziller has 2 supermarkets and a selection of nice restaurants all in walking distance. There is a an activity park where you can go ice skating, bowling or play tennis and it’s really cheap too! All the staff speak really good English so if you have any questions drop them an email, for prices and more information you can visit the website here.
