Winter fun in the Inn Valley and Zillertal - the Chalet Rasten in Gallzein
The location of the Rastenhof is an ideal starting point for all kinds of winter sports activities. Snowshoeing is on the spot, and also ski touring enthusiasts can get on their skis away from the chalet. With the Kellerjoch cable car and the ski areas in the Zillertal or at the Achensee, alpine skiers can find everything a skier or snowboarder desires after a short drive. We can offer a lot also for cross-country skiers (Achensee), tobogganing fans, skaters and curlers.
Tobogganing from the Koglmoosalm and on many other toboggan runs
The toboggan run from the Koglmoosalm in Gallzein is a two-and-a-half kilometre long toboggan run that is perfectly groomed throughout the winter. The winter path, which serves as the ascent to the Koglmoosalm, is about one kilometre away from Chalet Rastenhof.
Ice skating on the artificial ice rink in Schwaz
You will find a spacious, perfectly groomed and daily open ice rink in Schwaz, only six kilometres from the Rastenhof. Friday and Saturday there are additional opening hours in the evening on the artificial ice rink.
Curling in the ice sports club Terfens-Schwaz
There are ten lanes for stick shooters in Vomperloch only one kilometre away. The asphalt tracks are playable in summer and winter.
Skiing in the Kellerjoch ski area or high alpine in the Zillertal
The local mountain of Gallzein is the ski area Kellerjoch. With a chair lift, two drag lifts and two “magic carpets” for the little ones, it is a family-friendly ski area with 14 kilometres of ski slopes and freeride routes. The Zillertal with a whole series of large ski arenas can be reached by car in about 20 minutes.
Ski tours around Gallzein
You can start directly at the Rastenhof for the ski tours to Proxenstand (1896 metres) or Gratzenkopf (2087 metres). These are three-hour tours with over 1000 metres of altitude difference, views of the Karwendel and beautiful downhill slopes. In addition, there are hundreds of ski tours of all levels of difficulty in the mountains along the Inn valley, in the Karwendel and in the Zillertal.
Cross-country skiing around the silver region Gallzein
Cross-country skiers and snowshoe hikers will find ideal conditions on the slopes of the Tuxer Alps. You can go cross-country with snowshoes from the 825-metre-high Gallzein almost all winter long. Traced cross-country trails with impressive views can be found at the Kellerjoch or Achensee ski areas (Pertisau), for example.
Advent and Christmas markets in the Inn Valley
Christmas markets take place in nearby Schwaz, in Hall in Tyrol and in many other places in the Inn valley. The Christmas market in Innsbruck by the Golden Roof is particularly atmospheric, just over half an hour's drive from the Rastenhof.
New Year's Eve party in Schwaz
If you want to celebrate New Year's Eve twice, then Gallzein is the right place for you. In nearby Schwaz, a pre-New Year's Eve party with live music in many pubs and fireworks takes place all over the city on 30 December. On the 31st, you can celebrate once again with us at the Rastenhof.
