Kaltenbach, together with Ried and Stumm, is positioned in the heart of the valley, the so called "first holiday region in the Zillertal". Kaltenbach is the largest and best known among these three resorts. Thanks to the ring road, thorough-traffic doesn't exist here. The smaller and quieter village of Ried is right on the border of Kaltenbach. Stumm, on the opposite side of the valley, is approx. 1.5 km from the gondola to the ski area "Ski-optimal" and offers a special flair with its beautiful village square. All three districts have a modern tourist infrastructure with, among other amenities, indoor pools and various recreational attractions. In the middle of the ski area Hochzillertal lay the "Kristallhütte" and the "Wedelhütte", which are known to be two of the best ski huts in the Zillertal, and have already given shelter to many famous celebrities. Further, numerous restaurants offer regional specialities like traditional "Kasspatzen" pasta with cheese, home-made apple strudel, and "Kaiserschmarrn," sugared pancakes with raisins.
Remember if you don't find quite what you are looking for you can always give us a call. We are ready to help you find your perfect alpine holiday. Or perhaps you might like to consider an alternative destination? For example have you considered Interlaken in Switzerland? - When hiring a chalet in Interlaken you will enjoy a dramatic setting with vistas of the Alps, located on the Aare River, between lakes Thun and Brienz in central Switzerland, and gateway to the Bernese Oberland. Or perhaps as a possible alternative suggestion how about Pinzolo in Italy? - When hiring a ski chalet in Pinzolo you will enjoy challenging red runs and an excellent groomed black, which keep in good condition due to their northerly facing aspect. Pinzolo is the main town of the Val Rendena and lies south-east of Madonna di Campiglio. Take a look at the Pinzolo accommodation on offer at our sister site summer-chalets-italy.co.uk. [Less]
