Hotel Pension Ferienhof auf der Wiese
- Bed and breakfast
The decor throughout the Ferienhof auf der Weise is warm and bright, the rooms are simply furnished and all have a balcony. You might want to dust off your German phrasebook before you leave home - the auf der Wiese is run by a friendly husband and wife team, who don't speak too much English, but then you are on holiday in Austria. One thing the owners at the guesthouse do understand though is good hospitality and cleanliness.
Location - 15 minute walk to resort centre • 15-20 minute walk to Penken gondola • 25-30 minute walk to the quieter Horberger gondola • 5 minute walk to ski bus stop and train station
for 2 people on bed and breakfast sharing a room with Austrian twin beds, private shower, WC and balcony. Triple rooms are also available, third bed will be sofa bed or similar. Single rooms are available at a supplement.

Mayrhofen Resort Info
Mayrhofen skiing and boarding
Mayrhofen is the largest of the resorts covered by the 'Zillertal Superski' pass, with 101km of runs. The skiing in Mayrhofen itself is on two separate mountains but in 2006-7 a new cable car up to the Ahorn area was opened - making access much quicker and easier. Confident intermediates are best catered for, while better skiers can test their mettle on Penken’s challenging ‘black pistes’ - including the infamous Harakiri slope – while beginners, pleasure-seekers and carving enthusiasts can have the broad, sunny pistes of Ahorn all to themselves. Snowboarders will not find Mayrhofen the best place to learn, but the initiated can revel in the world class Vans Penken Park.
Mayrhofen ski resort
Mayrhofen itself is a town in its own right and therefore perhaps not as quintessentially "alpine" as a lot of Austrian resorts. However, the plethora of accommodation options, restaurants, off-snow activities, bars and nightclubs more than makes up for this. The Mayrhofen clientele is a mixture of young crowds looking for good nightlife and families looking to exploit the excellent child care facilities. Both of these are available and Mayrhofen manages to allow both sorts of holidays with neither group upsetting the other.
