#1 Tiroler Zugspitzbahn

The Tiroler Zugspitzbahn in Ehrwald gives you the opportunity to stand on Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze. Did you know that the "golden cross" at the top of the mountain is the goal of countless mountaineers? Maybe you too can have a go at the summit! Not such a steady foot after all? Then try a fondue evening on the Zugspitze!


Stand-Up-Paddling quickly became a popular trend sport and we totally get it: nature lovers can relax and enjoy the beautiful views at the same time. The lakes around Ehrwald, in our opinion the most beautiful lakes in the Alps, offer an excellent opportunity to spend a day (or two) on a supboard. Will it be the Heiterwanger See, the Plansee or both?


Does this sound like you? No matter where you are, a visit to the waterfalls is high on the list of things to do during your holiday. Well, Ehrwald is the perfect base from which to head to cooling waterfalls. For example, you can experience the wonderfully cool mist of the Häselgehrbach Waterfall!


There is a 9-hole golf course between Ehrwald and Lermoos. Ideal for the true golf enthusiast, but also for beginners. Book a lesson with one of the professionals and who knows, you could be the next Tiger Woods in no time!

#5 Time for a hike

Ist Ehrwald ein gutes Wandergebiet? Ja, mit bis zu 150 verschiedenen Wanderwegen gibt es zu Fuß viel zu entdecken! Die Tiroler Zugspitz Arena ist den Aktiven unter uns ein Begriff, aber auch Familien mit kleinen Kindern können eine der vielen Wanderrouten erkunden.


Young and old, active mountain bikers and quiet e-bikers, cycling is a fun activity for all ages and experience levels. Have you ever cycled in Tyrol's Zugspitz Arena? With over 100 different routes and trails to choose from, there is something for everyone! Why not try one of the MTB trails or braving the mountain by electric mountain bikes?
