High Alps Nature Park Zillertal Alps

The High Alps Nature Park Zillertal Alps is a high mountain nature park in the truest sense of the word. It extends from the mountaineering village Ginzling up to the Hochfeiler. All altitudinal levels are thereby part of the nature park, which is characterised by exceptionally high biodiversity. Together with other nature reserves in North, South and East Tyrol, the Zillertal Alps High Mountain Nature Park forms the largest association of nature reserves in the Alps! 

Deep gorges form the entrance into the total of five side valleys in the nature park, which are called “Gründe” in the Zillertal and open up into wide grazing areas at the end. The valuable cultural landscape is closely linked with the rugged high mountains, glaciers and summits of the main ridge of the Zillertal Alps such as Löffler, Schwarzenstein, Möseler or Hochfeiler.

Nature Park of the Year 2015

The Zillertal Alps High Mountain Nature Park was chosen “Austria’s Nature Park of the Year 2015” by an independent panel of experts from the Association of Austrian Nature Parks (VNÖ).

The nature park that particularly stands out in the work regarding the four pillars, implements innovative projects and fully exploits its potentials is always chosen “Nature Park of the Year”. 

Three of the nature park’s nature education offers especially impressed the experts: the “Glacier Experience Days” for schools, the ranger programme and the holiday weeks for children in the nature park municipalities.

These very different offers stand firstly for the diversity which the nature park offers.
