Sunrise Breakfast on Mount Ahorn

A fascinating spectacle of nature at 2.000 meters above sea level

Between 5:00 and 6:00 a.m., the Ahornbahn, Austria’s largest gondola, takes early birds up to the Ahorn Plateau, where they can enjoy the beautiful sunrise from the Zillertal Viewing Platform over a nice cup of hot tea. As you watch the sun’s rays rise above the peaks of the Zillertal Alps and slowly turn from bluish purple to bright pink to warm gold, you’ll realize that getting up so early was well worth the effort. This fascinating spectacle of nature briefly gives a mystical aura to the mountains of Mayrhofen. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast – the perfect meal before you tackle all the adventures that Ahorn Mountain has in store for you. There’s no better way to start the day!
