Recently the Zillertal Alps, which have been a protected area since 1991, were awarded the rating ‘Natural Preserve’. As a result, the area “Zillertaler Hauptkamm” is also known as an Alpine Natural Preserve, being the first of its sort in Tyrol. It is also worth noting that a Natural Preserve Association was founded, with the goal of taking care of the area and helping local businesses to be considerate and careful in regards to Nature.
In the vicinity of Hippach visitors can enjoy the unique alpine landscape of this preserve. It encompasses an area from the mountain village Ginzling (1,000 m above sea level) to the highest mountain of the valley, the Hochfeiler at 3,500 m.
Numerous paths, mountain restaurants and cabins are there for the Nature lovers, the hikers, the mountaineers and climbers, offering them many possibilities to enjoy themselves.
Bicyclists and mountain bikers will discover many possibilities to engage in their favourite hobby. Paved bicycle tracks alongside the Ziller are perfect for a family bike tour.
Bikers with stamina are free to explore the higher levels and go on a tour up to 2,000 m above sea level – on the ‘Zillertaler Höhenstrasse’.
In addition, all 4 tributary valleys of the Zillertal (Zillergrund, Stillup, Zemmgrund, Tux) can be accessed by bicycle.
