Cable car over Mayrhofen
Two cable cars – Penkenbahn (starting in the center of Mayrhofen) and Kombibahn Penken – will take us 1980 m above sea level: a relaxing trip with the possibility of easy hiking with minimal elevation gain and views of the peaks of the Zillertal Alps.

About 20 meters below the top station of the cable car is a lone dead tree, from which there is a nice view of the Ziller Valley.
The surrounding meadows are widely used as starting areas for paragliding. The offer of tandem flying is relatively extensive in the area.
Behind the Zemmtal valley, the peaks of Tristnereck (2328 m) and Tristner (2767 m) rise.

Only about 700 meters walk takes us to the small peak Knorren (2081 m), from which there is a nice circular view of the surrounding mountains.
One of the most popular destinations in the area is Karl-von-Edel-Hütte. From Penken we have it as the crow flies 8 km as if in the palm of our hand.
