Reach for the Alps
2 Zillertal Alps Nature Park Dear Nature Park Enthusiast,
Our Nature Park is a high alpine conservation area in the truest sense of the words. It extends from the traditional mountaineering village of Ginzling to the Hochfeiler Peak at 3,509 m. Five different sub-valleys, narrow gorges, glaciated summits, innate and cultivated landscapes as well as an extraordinary biodiversity are its defining characteristics.
We invite you to discover the Nature Park together with our guides and find out more about the region. There is something to suit everyone with hikes to the Berlin Hut, herbal walks and an ascent to Mount Ahorns peak with Peter Habeler.
We highly recommend a visit to the Nature Park House, as well as staying with one of our partner companies who work in close collaboration with the Nature Park. Guests of our part-ner companies can participate in all our Nature Park hikes and visit the exhibition at the Nature Park House for free.
The Nature Park is waiting to be discovered by you!

8 Events 2014 Lecture: Glacier & Man The past, present & future of a frosty relationship - 31.07. Mans relationship with glaciers is diverse and has changed constantly over the course of time. This deve-lopment spans from the erstwhile fear of glaciers to the current and future concern for glaciers, which are threatened both by climate change and economic interests. This presentation focuses on all these issues in the form of a journey through time, that sheds light on the social and scientific aspects of alpine glaciers in a spatial and temporal perspective. Lecture by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Karl Lieb: Thursday, 31st July, 19:30 hrs, Ginzling Mehrzweckgebude, free admission.
Excursion: Glacier change over space and time demonstrated by Zemmgrund - 01.08. The excursion leads into glacier dominated Zemmgrund, which owes not only its scenic beauty, but also its mountaineering and scientific tradition to glacial history. The changes in the glacier are explained along the Glacier Trail Berliner Hut and shown in a broad scientific and cultural-historical context. Here, Prof. Lieb demonstrates his years of knowledge and great experience of many alpine glaciers.Friday, 1st August, meeting point 08:45 hrs at Breitlahner Guest House, free participation.
