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 pubs, bars and restaurants. However, the slopes of Fügen/Spieljoch are not directly connected to the pistes of Kaltenbach/Hochfügen - nevertheless the areas can both be accessed with the same lift pass. Between these villages there are ski buses that shuttle the 6 km between these two destinations.
