Zillertal Alps Nature Park

7 km² auf 379 km²

The borders of the nature park have been adjusted and its size has increased by 7km² to 379km². From Mayrhofen, the door to the nature park, the back of the Zillertal is divided – like fingers - into different side valleys. The nature park stretches from an altitude of 1,000m in Ginzling up to an altitude of 3,509m at Hochfeiler and covers all altitude levels of the Central Alps.

Guests of Schöne Aussicht Family can join all guided nature park hikes free of charge. On the hikes you will get plenty of information and background information on the impressive natural and cultural landscape of the back of the Zillertal.
