The Alpine village of Fügen is situated in Zillertal, an area of Austria called the Tyrol. The valley is 35 km long and ends in the village of Mayerhofen.
Fügen has approximately 4000 residents and is situated 560 m above sea level. Surrounding the village are high mountains with peaks above 2000 m. Fügen is a genuine Tyrolean village with the church in the centre. There are many shops, a couple of supermarkets, restaurants, pubs, banks, a post office and one disco.
The Zillertal is a valley branching off the larger Inntal valley, by the river Ziller. It is the second largest ski area in Austria, and Fügen has two local ski areas: Spieljoch and Hochfügen. In Hintertux (approx. 40 km away from Fügen) it is possible to ski on the glacier, even during the summer months.
There are several magnificent hiking trails around the village and the valley accommodates hiking for all – beginners to advanced level. Large backpacks are not necessary because there are several restaurants at convenient distances from each other. There are also numerous attractions and day trip possibilities – in Zillertal and in the rest of the Tyrol .
In the village there is a thermal bath as well as an open air swimming pool. There are also several lakes close by, where swimming is safe and encouraged. Bicycles can be rented locally. You can be adventurous and cycle uphill but there are many nice flat cycle tracks along the Tyrol valley.
