Talk like a local

Talk like a local

There’s always been plenty of cheer, chat and excellent chemistry between guests and locals in the Tuxertal but the Zillertal dialect does have its pitfalls and can be tricky to negotiate. We would like to promote greater understanding between our visitors and the Zillertal folks. The words and phrases we’ve chosen will help you shine and impress, especially when you join us for our Regulars‘ Celebration Week in 2020. Practice makes perfect, so keep it up and you’ll sound like a native in no time ;)
