As every year, we celebrate our traditional "Almfest´l" on 15.th august!
The Sunnalm is particularly easy to reach in summer and is a favourite excursion destination for young and old, as well as being an insider's tip for families.
There's an afternoon barbeque every Wednesday and Sunday with an extensive salad buffet; and there are homemade Zillertal doughnuts every weekend.
By car from Hippach up to the Schwendberg (Zillertal "Höhenstrasse"). After about 5 km, turn left into the Horbergweg and continue as far as the large car park (no road toll). From here, walk to the Sunnalm in just 20 minutes through the lovely Alpine meadows.
If you start your walk from the Horbergweg turning, then it takes about 1.5 hours to reach the hut.
For more energetic walkers, the new circular trail - Hochschwendberg No. 30 - is recommended. Go by bus or car to the starting point at the Gasthof Mösl (Hochschwendberg). From here, walk via the Sandeggalm to the Hochleger. Continue climbing through wonderful countryside to the Unterbergalm. You will then have reached the highest point and walk on a wide meadow path as far as the Sunnalm (3 – 4 hrs walk). After a well-earned welcome schnapps, Claudia, our manager, will be pleased to tempt you to local specialities. From the Sunnalm it's then about 1 hour via the Horbergweg back to the starting point at the Gasthof Mösl.
Furthermore, you can also reach the Sunnalm from the Mayrhofen Penken cable car top station in about 2 hrs via Route No. 24.
Mountain hikes starting from the Sunnalm:
- Pangertspitze 2.550 m approx. 3 hrs walk
- Rastkogel 2.760 m approx. 4 hrs walk
Cycling – Mountain Biking
The Sunnalm is a rewarding destination for all cyclists and mountain bikers in particular. Those completing the climb from Mayrhofen via Hippach – Schwendberg, will be rewarded with special meals for mountain bikers and, naturally, also with a schnapps.
