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.
