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.
