The climate of Zillertal (Austria)
The Zillertal is the biggest valley branching off the Inn valley
in Tyrol, Austria drained by the river Ziller. The Zillertal branches
from the Inn trench near Jenbach, about 40 km northeast of Innsbruck,
running mostly in a north-south direction. The Zillertal proper
stretches from the village of Strass to Mayrhofen, where it separates
into four smaller valleys, the Tux valley and the sparsely settled,
so-called Gründe - Zamsergrund, Zillergrund and Stilluppgrund. Along
the way, two more Gründe and the Gerlos valley, which leads to the
Gerlos Pass and into Salzburg, branch off. The main source of income
is tourism, during the winter as a skiing resort. During the summer
many hikers (1,000 kilometers of footpaths) and cyclers (450
kilometers of tracks) visit this region. The Zillertal is also known
for its music, Silent night, Holy night was composed here. The
Zillertal gets about 300 days of sunshine and is known for its clean
air. Winters are much colder here than in other parts of Austria.
However, when the sun shines it may feel much warmer. Summers are
pleasantly warm but very wet. Be sure to bring an umbrella.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
