Bouldering in Tyrol

Climbing boulders and rock faces without the use of ropes or harnesses is enjoying growing popularity in the Zillertal Valley.

Several "natural climbing areas" can be found in the Mayrhofen-Hippach holiday region, which offer various routes in all levels of difficulty for both beginners and pros. Because the climbing areas in Ginzling and Zillergrund are located on private land, your considerate behaviour (removal of waste, noise abatement, use of sign-posted car parking areas...) is essential to ensure that rock climbing remains accessible to the public in future.


Necessary equipment:

  • Climbing shoes
  • Chalk bag
  • Bouldering mats
  • Brushes (for grips and shoe cleaning)
  • Tape (as a preventative measure and for minor injuries)
