ON THE TRAIL OF PITZTAL NATURE.
Experience breathtaking views – in our home, the Kaunergrat Nature Park
The Pitztal – situated between Ötztal and Kaunertal fascinates with imposing peaks, idyllic mountain lakes and an impressive alpine world. The scent in the air, pure, of herbs and flowers, the water from the numerous springs is cool and clear, a soft murmur of the streams fascinates. A treat for the senses and the heart.
The poetry of the Pitztal mountain nature
Whether slow hiking, or highly concentrated climbing. Whether relaxing pause in the lush alpine meadow, or tingling summit happiness. Whether sunrise or sunset. In the Pitztal you experience nature enjoyment in all dimensions and for all senses. The Kaunergrat Nature Park, the wild, untamable and yet so magically fascinating landscape between the Ötztal and Kaunertal valleys, is characterized by sky-high peaks, clear mountain lakes and a diverse world of huts and alpine pastures. Especially now, when health, space and personal well-being are more important than ever, let yourself be surrounded by the purity of the air, the effects of herbs and flowers, the water from the purest mountain streams. Treat yourself to this invigorating, uplifting treat.
This is the highest retreat in all of Austria. And at the same time the exact altitude at which you move here on the roof of Tyrol. The panorama from Café 3.440 is indescribably beautiful. There is a wide view from the Zugspitze to the Dolomites or the Ortler massif.
Glacier safari in the summer months
If you like it, you can even dive into the icy worlds that the highest glacier in Tyrol has to offer in high summer. Here you can go on a glacier safari with guides. If desired, guests can be abseiled into a crevasse. An experience that can hardly be topped.
Raft ride on the Rifflsee
The Rifflsee is located at 2,232 meters in the middle of the ski area of the same name and can be easily reached by gondola. The Rifflsee is now one attraction richer: there you can check in on a raft, which has room for 60 people and sails along almost silently.
XP Adventure Park in Jerzens

We are happy to share these unique moments with you on our guided hikes through the Pitztal Alps, take you with us on our trails and stop with you at the rustic huts and alpine pastures.
