Zillertaler Alpen Nature Park

Mountain tarn in the Zillertaler Alpen

Within the Nature Park, public roads, helicopter tours and lifts for tourism purposes are all completely taboo.

Since 1991, this high-alpine world, which was previously known under the name "Ziilertaler Hauptkamm", has been  a protected area.  In 2001, it was officially designated a "Nature Park", putting it into a preservation category which is recognized world-wide.

The Nature Park encompasses some 379 km² and ranges in elevation from around 1000m up to 3510m. If you want to hike from one edge of the park to the other, it will probably take you some seven days.
