Things to Do in Hochfügen?
Hochfügen is a very active place. How could it be any other way? One of the highlights is the rope race taking place at the end of the season in April. Rope teams of three men/women participate in a ski race. It is not about the single performance, but all about team spirit. The Zillertal Bike Challenge, one of the toughest mountain biking races, stops in Hochfügen on the first weekend in July.
