Zillertal Alps nature park
The Zillertal Alps Nature Park is located in the middle of the upper Zillertal, which is an impressive natural and cultivated landscape north of the main ridge of the Alps. The nature park encompasses an area of 379 km² and extends from elevations of ca. 1000 m up to 3510 m. If you would like to hike through the entire area, it will take you 7 days.
From Mayrhofen to the entrance of the nature park, the upper Zillertal is divided into various side valleys that stretch out like fingers on a hand. Since 1991, the high mountain landscape has been under environmental protection. Public roads, helicopter flights, or lifts for tourist purposes are taboo here.
Shady trails through a quiet mountain valley past secluded hill farms and ancient farmhouses. Uphill routes that lead high above the tree line. The biking offer in Mayrhofen fulfills all wishes - from challenging biking adventures to leisurely family cycling. The Zillertal offers a total of 800 km of cycling and mountain bike trails up to elevations of 2000 m.
In the Zillertal Nature Park, you will find bizarre rock formations and rugged mountain slopes that promise exciting thrills for climbing fans.
