"Hidden Treasures" is the new jewel in the Nature Park crown in the mountaineering village of Ginzling. The exhibition extends over two floors encompassing a surface area of over 500 m² and takes you on a unique journey through the geological history of the Zillertal Alps. It features sparkling treasures that have formed inside the mountains over millions of years. A constant focus is placed on the people who have been exploring the mountains for thousands of years to search for, find, mine and trade these treasures. Many exciting stories are told, based predominantly on local examples 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 just some of the highlights that await.

Under the established book series "Hikes into the History of the Earth", geologist Thomas Hornung wrote two very special books on behalf of the Zillertal Alps Nature Park. Both are not only filled with exciting findings, photos and visualisations, but above all with maps and exact directions. Those who follow them can, so to speak, explore the Zillertal and southern Tux Alps through the eyes of the geologist and understand their geology. The scientist deliberately refrains from giving complex explanations; instead, he succeeds in elegantly bridging the gap between a high-quality hiking guide and an exciting knowledge transfer.
