Nature Park - Protect nature, experience nature

High Mountain Nature Park Zillertal Alps

What is a nature park?

In any case a protected landscape! But not to be confused with a nature reserve. People have access and are even motivated to go into the green. Sounds good. But does one benefit from a nature park?

Both sides benefit, people and nature! Grasses, animals and trees are not affected by the machinations of civilization and people learn the right way to deal with the environment.

With an area of 422km², the high mountain nature park Zillertaler Alpen not only offers a habitat for many animal and plant species, but also creates space for various sports and leisure activities. Starting in Ginzling at 1,000 meters above sea level, up to the Hochfeiler at 3,509 meters above sea level, the diversity is enormous.

Also a large number of universities and other institutions from Germany and abroad are active in our nature park region and explore the diversity of the natural & cultural area, the changes the special features.
