A family is spotted crossing the Drahsteg pedestrian hanging bridge in the Zillertal Alps in Austria. The Zillertal Alps are a mountain range of the Central Eastern Alps on the border of Austria and Italy. The range is named after the Zillertal (Ziller river valley) on its north.

The range is bounded by the Tuxerjoch mountain pass to the north (separating it from the Tux Alps); the Birnlücke – Forcella del Picco pass to the east (separating it from the Hohe Tauern); the Eisack and its tributary the Rienz to the south (separating it from the Southern Limestone Alps); and the Brenner Pass to the west (separating it from the Stubai Alps).
