Alpine Bliss: 5 of the Best Summer Holiday Activities at ZillergrundRock in the Alps

Nestled amidst snow-capped peaks, the ZillergrundRock luxury mountain resort, located near Mayrhofen, isn't just for a winter escape—it's also perfectly positioned for summertime adventures, proper relaxation and a chance to really reset.

While winter enthusiasts flock to indulge in the pristine ski slopes and exciting seasonal events like the famous Snowbombing Festival, summer guests relish hiking and biking in the Zillertal Alps, indulging in incredible regional cuisine, and relishing big night skies and fresh mountain air.

For those wanting to make the most out of their summer holidays in the Alps, Pilot PR has compiled  a list of 5 of the best summer activities to do from your base at one of Austria’s leading luxury hotels in Tyrol – the ZillergrundRock:


1.)   Get outside! ZillergrundRock offers a programme of activities and hiking tours occur daily with many trails starting right from the hotel’s doorstep. With almost 1,000km of walking trails and over 800km of bike routes for all ability levels, ZillergrundRock is the ideal hotel for outdoor adventurers. This year sees the launch of five fresh trail routes in Erste Ferienregion in Zillertal and a mountain biking ride on the Marchkopf Tour, both just twenty minutes from the hotel.


2.)   Cool off after your adventure! Take a swim in the incredible outdoor pool, dubbed #thebestskypoolever, with jaw-dropping views of the Zillertal Alps. The Sky Spa is a two-level pool that makes you feel as though you are in heaven. Right next to it is the Alpine Rock Terrace, where you can sit with a drink, relax, enjoy the beautiful view.


3.)   Slow down! Stargazing, bird songs, and the rush of the Ziller River are as striking a feature as the architecture of the luxurious hotel. With no sound or light pollution, it is the perfect place to appreciate nature.


4.)   Get hot! Zillergrund is a wellness hotel in the mountains, the perfect place to learn how to sauna like a local. You can hop from the Event Sauna at the Sky Spa to the Finnish Sauna in the log cabin outdoors to the BIO Swiss Pine Sauna for mild heat in a dreamlike ambiance with a pine scent. As you unwind and sweat it all out, you will feel truly immersed in the essence of Austrian wellness culture, rejuvenated, and refreshed.


5.)   Indulge in Austrian cuisine! After relaxing, get ready to eat like a royal at the award-winning Rocky 7 Restaurant, which has just been presented with 4 stars from the prestigious Der Große “Great Restaurant & Hotel Guide” declaring it as offering ‘EXCELLENT CUISINE‘. It is high praise indeed from this influential gastronomy guide. 


"We eat what nature provides" is the Zillergrund motto, making all meals sustainable and locally sourced. Courtesy of the adjacent Ziller River, hydroelectric power is harnessed to run much of the energy used at Zilllergrund. The 'we eat what nature offers us' policy also focuses on the best quality local produce. Sustainability is vital to keeping the luxury hotel in the Alps and our planet alive.


So, whether you are looking for outdoor adventure or indoor relaxation, Zillergrund luxury mountain resort has everything and much more to offer. ZillergrundRock's mission is to welcome you to the luxurious resort and introduce you to Austria's beauty, nature, food, and traditional wellness activities.
