Sights and customs

Kaunertal nature park and glacier region is a meeting point for nature and culture. Its unique mountain landscape runs parallel with traditional care for culture and customs. Our viewing platforms speak to the soul. If you visit the platforms early on in your holiday in Kaunertal, you can be sure to get a good overview of the whole of Kaunertal.

Churches and chapels

We believe!

It is for a reason that Tyrol is also called “The Holy Land of Tyrol”. The people of this country - and especially in the countryside - keep their Catholic faith very much alive. And over the centuries, they also built many sacred monuments such as churches and chapels in Kaunertal. A visit to these houses of God is a meditative crusade through the epochs of cultural history.

History and mysticism

Stories and histories

Stony witnesses of days past, or a hill that may once have been the site of mystic ceremonies – History tells its stories in ancient monuments and passed down knowledge, and sometimes also in sagas. It tells of the first settlements and of occult rituals, of Romans and knights, of epochs emerging and passing. It tells of the people who once lived here and how their culture(s) influence raw nature. And it will continue and tell of us once we are no longer around….

Nature and wildlife

Watch nature spring to life

Kaunertal is a nature park region for a reason. Several climate zones up to perpetual ice create a unique biodiversity which must be protected. Many species of animals and plants find refuge here to survive and flourish. They have adapted to the raw climate and the varied landscape - often in astonishing, nearly unbelievable ways. Watch nature spring to life in Kaunertal. Feel it and see it.

Autumn pasture

The beautiful colours of nature

Autumn is here. Time to reap the fruit of summer. Time to be out and about in the world of mountains and lodges and to enjoy the last mild temperatures of the year. Time to look after the colourful customs of the year. In Kaunertal, we celebrate harvest festival to thank Mother Nature for her fruits. The cattle are brought down from their summer pastures on the lodges in parades resplendent with colour. And we sit down together at “Almhuangart“ and enjoy local music and food. We celebrate nature and culture in the Tyrolean mountains.
