Summer holidays in Ehrwald, Austria

Haus Brabant is located in the middle of the romantic village of Ehrwald in the middle of a valley known as the Zugspitzarena.

This name may be familiar to some and comes from the Zugspitze: the highest mountain in Germany!?!

Indeed Germany, the border is on top of the mountain, but Ehrwald is really in Austria! The typical and traditional architectural style can be found here in abundance. Ehrwald is the largest village (s) out of 3 in this valley.

But what does it matter, you have ended up well, because there is a lot to do in the summer!

Beautiful hikes start from Ehrwald, for the avid hiker, the Nordic walker, but also for the more climber.

We are in a valley surrounded by mountain peaks, which means that you can make many kilometers as well as altitude meters. Cycling a round is therefore very easy or very difficult for those who are fans of it. Cycling / mountain bike routes abound, from simple to real calf biters.

In the Zugspitzarena you will find 8 mountain lakes, one warmer than the other. Around the corner is a beautiful large waterfall, swimming in it is for the real ones.

Watch the video below to get an impression of the landscape.

To walk

A Total of over 150 different Walking routes are available. The selection ranges from easy trails spread over adventure trails to challenging climbing tours and mountain peaks. The biggest challenge is the popular Zugspitze with 2962 meters. On our advice, many guests have already walked the hike to the SeebenSee with children

Seebensee – Coburger Hütte 1,917 m – walking time: approx. 4 hours

The starting point for this route is the base station of the Ehrwalder Almbahn. You can reach the mountain restaurant Tiroler Haus by cable car. The wide hiking trail leads through the Ganghofer`s Rast to the Seebenalm. Or you can go on foot via the Hohegang directly to the SeebenAlm .. .. From the Seebenalm you walk through to the wonderfully situated Seeben lake. For those who still have some energy left, you can walk with a steep and winding path to the Coburgerhütte, where you can enjoy the beautiful view over two lakes.

A very nice walk, and also doable is the road from the Zugspitze over the Gatterl to the EhrwalderAlm

Zugspitze 2,962 m – walking time: approx. 6 hours

Up with the Tyrolean Zugspitz lift to the top of the Zugspitze. Down with the Gletscherbahn or via the difficult mountain path to the plateau of the Zugspitze. The road leads via the Knorrhütte 2,051 m to the Gatterl 2,000 m – Feldernjöchl 2,045 m – Hochfeldern Alm 1,732 m – Ehrwalder Alm 1,502 m – descent with the Ehrwalder Almbahn or on foot via the Forst or Wiesenweg to the valley.



Many years of cross-country skiing experience in winter sports form the basis of the enthusiasm for Nordic Walking, a sport which of course has a lot of similarity to cross-country skiing, also known as Nordic skiing. Nordic walkers do not fall short in Ehrwald. The large open area between Ehrwald, Lermoos and Biberwier is an Eldorado for the Nordic walkers. In addition, there are all kinds of linking routes to neighboring valleys. The Hochloipe Ehrwalder Alm invites to a fairytale tour in the middle of a vast landscape at an altitude of 1500 meters

Play golf

The golf course is beautifully enclosed in a beautiful and quiet area between Ehrwald and Lermoos and that is undoubtedly the biggest plus.

When talking about the beauty of nature, you will not only be surprised by the size of the Wetterstein massives with Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze, but simply be impressed by the mountain peaks up to 3,000 meters high.

The natural landscaped golf course has been built to the top current international regulations and is extremely suitable for tournament games.

Those who go to the Zugspitz Arena in summer should definitely take a ride on the longest summer toboggan run in Tyrol (1.5 km). Children, but also the moms and dads, absolutely love this toboggan run.

Near the hotel “MyTirol” in Biberwier you can take the Marienbergbahn to the starting point.

The little ones can enjoy an exciting ride down on their lap with mom or dad. Thanks to the brake (and you need it) you can determine your own speed. The very first ride you will probably want to keep your luge in check, but soon the racing devil comes loose in you.

To climb

For those who love climbing sport, there are plenty of options. Ehrwald is a real bollard climbing hall rich. The new climbing hall has the most modern climbing facilities. Equipment and accessories can be borrowed or ordered in the shop. There are also courses.

Alpine climbers and mountain climbers will find a variety of rock formations and climbing routes in all levels of difficulty in the Tiroler Zugspitz Arena. Due to its location in the south, many hiking trails and routes are available
