High Alps Nature Park Zillertal Alps

The Zillertal Alps High Mountain Nature Park is located in the rear Zillertal and protects an impressive natural and cultural landscape north of the main Alpine ridge over an area of 422 km².
Like the fingers of a hand, the rear Zillertal is divided from Mayrhofen into the various side valleys. Thereby the nature park extends from 1.000 m in Ginzling, up to 3.509 m at the Hochfeiler, over all altitudes of the central Alps. There is a lot to experience at these heights.

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.

NEW: Hidden Treasures Exhibition

The exhibition extends over two floors and more than 500 m² and takes visitors on a unique journey through the geological history of the Zillertal Alps and shows the sparkling crystal treasures that have formed inside the mountains over millions of years. The focus is always on the people who have been traveling in the mountains for thousands of years to look for, find, mine and trade these treasures. Many exciting stories are told, especially using the example of rock crystal and garnet. A large relief of the Zillertal Alps, interactive stations, fascinating installations such as the kaleidoscope and a mountain cinema are some of the highlights that await visitors...
