Zillertal Alps Nature Park
The Zillertal Alps Nature Park: a real high mountain nature park! The park extends from the mountain climbing village of Ginzling to the Hochfeiler, so it includes all alpine altitudinal belts. The nature park is famous for its exceptionally high diversity of species - both plants and animals!
Together with other protected areas in North, South, and East Tyrol, the Zillertal Alps Nature Park constitutes the largest association of nature reserves in the Alps.
Scenically, it offers absolutely gorgeous views: deep gorges serve as the entrance to 5 side valleys - here in the Zillertal, these valleys are called "Gründe". The valleys open up into vast pastures.
Theme hikes and gorgeous views
Lush meadows and rugged high mountains, glaciers and summits - the landscape in the nature park is just as diverse and fascinating! A few of the important mountains of the Zillertal main ridge are the Löffler, the Schwarzenstein, the Möseler, and the Hochfeiler.
In the nature park, there is a diverse summer program with over 200 guided hikes through the park from May to October. The nature park guides are absolute specialists, and a total of 30 different theme areas are on the program.
An herb hike with explanations about the green treasures found along the path, a hike to the famous Berliner Hütte, wildlife observation – you can see marmots, ibexes, or chamois in the wild here - or a ranger tour: the choice is yours!
For children, there are great program activities such as llama trekking, forest gnome day, or a fun adventure in the Zillergrund.
