Nature Park Zillertaler Alps
Preserving nature together
The Nature Park Zillertal is a protected natural landscape. The goal of this title “Nature Park” is to preserve and sustainably develop this valuable, distinctive landscape.
We are a member of the Nature Park Zillertal, giving our guests the opportunity to experience the attractive program of the Nature Park Ziller Valley. The nature park ranges from about 1,000 m to 3,509 m altitude and includes all levels of the central Alps. Due to factors such as altitude, exposition, geological make-up, or formation history, you will discover very different habitats as well as animal and plant species. Because of its vertical orientation, the number of habitats is large, and their flaura and fauna are very diverse. Glaciers cover a sizeable part of the nature park and have formed the landscape since time immemorial. In addition to the natural factors, it is humans who shape nature and cultivate areas today. The effects of their lifestyles and economical activities can be easily seen in the environment and are - especially in the Alps - responsible for the changeable and romanticised mountain landscape.
A nature park not only includes a natural landscape but also stands for the enrichment of nature tourism. The mountain nature park offers you diverse opportunities to relax - whether actively, by hiking, climbing, mountain biking, or comfortably on extended walks through the magnificent and varied landscape. Experience the park's characteristics and secrets on one of our summer program tours. Let yourself be enchanted by the glittering world of minerals, by adventurous stories from the times of poachers and smugglers, or by the special flair of a torch hike. Visit us in the new information centre in the hiker village Ginzling, or visit the nature park exhibit! Take advantage of the attractive offer of the “Nature Park Zillertal” and become a part of this magnificent landscape. Discover the variety of the flora and fauna in our surroundings.
The Nature Park Zillertal also offers guided hikes for every age group. The carefully selected tours are rich in diversity. Our tours are of different lengths (half-day, full day) and are centered around different themes like cultivated landscape, botany, geology, glacier, mountain forest, which our trained guides will introduce to you!
