At the entrance of the Zillertal you can find the vibrant village of Fügen and the modern village Hochfügen. Both these villages are situated in the valley and are via the Innsbruck-Salzburg highway easily accessible.
Fügen is a lively village with plenty of après-ski options. However, the slopes of Fügen (Spieljoch ski area) are not directly connected to the pistes of Hochfügen/Hochzillertal - nevertheless the areas can both be accessed with the same lift pass. Ski buses run between the two villages, which are approximately 13.5 km apart. From the valley station of the Spieljochbahn you can reach Hochfügen in around 25 minutes by bus. From the valley station of the Panoramabahn Geols this is about 15 minutes.
