Hintertux is located at the base of the lifts rising onto the Hintertux glacier, while the small settlements of Madseit and Juns are located further back in between Hintertux and Tux-Lanersbach.
Those staying in any of these areas have the best of both worlds from the point of view of skiing, with easy access to the glacier, but also with a direct way into the main Ziller valley skiing above Lanersbach, Vorderlanersbach and Finkenberg.
These are hotels which are located near the base station of the glacier lifts.
Madseit and Juns are small settlements in between Hintertux (and the glacier skiing) and Tux (with access to the Eggalm area). Ski buses run in both directions to the various areas.
