Out and about in the Zillertal Alps - Gartenhotel Crystal

Out and about in the Zillertal mountains

Insider tips from locals

Hi, my name is Martina Huber and I have worked at Gartenhotel Crystal since 1993.

At the beginning, I was a receptionist in the front office. I am fascinated with other countries in this world and so I spent several years abroad, for example in London and France.

Now, I work in the back office. I supervise room bookings and am responsible for billing. I am also always happy to fill in at the reception desk and help out my colleagues.

I am a Fügen native and love nature. I take every opportunity to exercise in the fresh air, go for walks, and enjoy the peace and quiet. On my walks, I never lose sight of my goal and destination, for example a mountain hut where I can enjoy a glass of fresh buttermilk. On hot days in summer, I am always drawn to the Achensee, Tyrol's largest lake.

Excursion to the Achensee

The steam train on the cog railway will take you up the mountain through the green forest with a wonderful view of the Zillertal. Once you have reached the top of the mountain, there are many possibilities: from easy walks to challenging hikes and a refreshing dip in the lake.

A boat ride on the Achensee is also very rewarding. Here, you have a great panoramic view around the Achensee all the way to the Karwendel and Rofangebirge mountains. I like to enjoy the landscape while breathing in the fresh air. It is an excellent and diverse excursion destination.
