Moments just for me
in the High Alps Nature Park Zillertal Alps
The High Alps Nature Park Zillertal Alps is located in the rear Zillertal protecting an impressive natural and cultural environment north of the main chain of the Alps on a total area of 422 km².
Starting at Mayrhofen, the rear Zillertal is divided into various tributary valleys like the fingers on a hand. The nature park stretches across all altitude levels of the Central Alps from 1,000 m in Ginzing to 3,509 m on Hochfeiler.
There’s a lot to experience in these heights. Click here to find the summer program of Nature Park Zillertal Alps.
Nature park with character
The beautiful nature park region is located directly by the municipalities Finkenberg, Tux and Hintertux. The nature-shaped mountain scenery with extreme conditions is closely bound up with human use. People already crossed the region’s mountain passes and overcame the borders between today’s North and South Tyrol millennia ago. Experience the region and the special mountain atmosphere of Tuxertal yourself.
