Zell am Ziller Region
We LOVE this area!! This is an exceptional and little known climbing area. 4 Top World Climbs are accessed from this spot, although a couple do have some overlap to them. Zell am Ziller is an excellent town for a visit (see slideshow) and we very much enjoyed our stay and climbing in this wonderful Austrian Climb Zone!
So, what does this place have to offer???? A very quaint town as your base and some extremely challenging climbs!
The climbs Include Hippach to Jausenstation (an incredible overlook at the top of 3 climbs and great cafe!!) at 8.4 miles/10.8% [Wow!]/4,603’ gained, Aschau-Kristall Hutte: 9.9 miles 10.6%/4,603’; Aschau Murmelland: 6.9 miles/10.5%/4,019 and Zelberg to Jausenstation at 9.6 miles/10.@%/4,720’ gained.
Jausenstation - near end of all climbs - THE place to relax after the challenging ascents
