Fugen, the destination for Huddersfield Town’s pre-season trip to Austria at the end of July, has plenty to offer.

It’s appealing to football managers (Town head coach David Wagner went there several times with Borussia Dortmund II), skiiers, hikers and cyclists alike.

In the winter, the area in the state of Tyrol in the West of Austria offers two skiing areas, one with 87.5km of slopes and 37 lift facilities.

In summer, a vast network of hiking trails and some 850km of mountain bike trails draw visitors.

Fugen (population 3,700) also boasts thermal baths and a scenic railway through the Zillertal valley.

Fugen was a settlement in the Bronze Age and by the 15th century, was known for producing cannonballs and plate for armour.

Now it is the home of one of Europe’s largest sawmill enterprises.

According to folklore, Fugen is also where the famous Christmas song ‘Silent Night, Holy Night’ started spreading out into the world.

The organ builder Karl Mauracher brought the song from Oberndorf in Salzburg to Fugen, where it was made famous by the Zillertaler Nationalsanger choir.
