There's no exaggerating - it's the active town for the young and not so young.
Gerlos lies at an altitude of 1,300 m. Embedded between the Hohe Tauern National park and the Ziller Valley national park Gerlos is both a jewel of nature and a sports park. Alpenhof is situated right in the middle as a point of departure for pleasure seekers and sports enthusiasts.
Gerlos is full of surprises, adventure and fun - lots more than its elevation would lead you to believe. That's why when you make your holiday with us we say: "Do everything you want, or don't do anything at all!"

Whether for jogging, running, alpine running, walking or Nordic walking, the varied landscapes and the beauty surrounding Gerlos together with its "waterside" location offer a lasting experience in natural surroundings for the guest who is interested in stamina and adventure.
