Events in Mayrhofen

Experience tradition, culture and nature.

The annual events in Mayrhofen and in the entire Zillertal valley area range from contemplative to boisterous and from reverent to rustic. Traditional folk events, the traditional Almabtrieb (ceremonial driving of cattle down from the mountain pasture into the valley in autumn), sporting events and fun sport highlights are all part of the varied repertoire of our region. As a guest in the ElisabethHotel you will of course always be one step ahead of the others and well informed about upcoming events in the Zillertal valley.

Hooo Ruck am Berg 2022

Erwin Aschenwald & Die Mayrhofner. He is probably the most legendary musician in the Zillertal and also one of the last originals in the valley - we are talking about Erwin Aschenwald vulgo Schotter Erwin.
