Nature Park of the Zillertal Alps

The Nature Park Zillertal Alps is located at the back of the Zillertal in a marvellous natural and cultural surrounding in the north of the Alpenhauptkamm. The Nature Park covers an area of 379 km² and extends over altitudes ranging from ca. 1,000m to 3,510 metres above sea level. Those wanting to hike the entire region will need seven whole days.

From Mayrhofen, which is the gate to the Nature Park of the Zillertal Alps, the back of the valley parts into several side valley´s.  
Since 1991 these high alpine landscapes, known as the Zillertal Main Ridge, have been under protection. In 2001 the area was rewarded with the title „Nature Park“ – an internationally recognized conservation category.

Public roads, helicopter flights or cable cars for tourism purposes are strictly forbidden in the Nature Park
