The High Mountain Nature Park

and stretches along to the Hochfeiler at 3510m. At Mayrhofen, the Zillertal Valley fans into tributary valleys of the Zillertal Alps.
As one of the most spectacular nature parks in Austria, the
mountains feature narrow gorges that spread into glacial valleys and their tributaries, steep rock walls, summits and glaciers. Among the well-known 3000m mountains are: the Olperer (3476m)
, the Reichenspitze (3303m)
and the Hochfeiler (3510m)
. They offer grand views and unforgettable hiking and mountaineering
The park is constantly monitored by the federal state of Tirol
, the Austrian Alpine Association, responsible communities and the tourist associations of Mayrhofen
. The collective aim is to preserve the natural environment of the park and support tourism within its 379-km² terrain boudaries. A wide variety of programmes are offered at the park, including guided hikes and themed walks
. There are also three interesting permanent exhibitions that are very informative and fun for the whole family.
