Hochzeiger Swiss Pine Park

The Swiss pine, a rare conifer, is also called “Queen of the Alps”: A park in the Pitztal valley is dedicated to this beautiful tree

A family-friendly circular path at 2,000 m a.s.l. tells interesting things about nature and the Swiss pine. The Hochzeiger Cable Car takes you from Jerzens up to the intermediate station, where a 1 km long hiking path starts. Here on the 2,560 m high Mt. Hochzeiger in the Oetztal Alps, one of the most beautiful and oldest Swiss pine forests of Tyrol can be found.

The mascots Pitzi & Gratsch await you at the Swiss Pine Water playground. Then the path leads into the Hochzeiger Swiss Pine Park (ZirbenPark Hochzeiger). Play, adventure and relax stations, in total 17, can be discovered. The highlight is the 12-metre high Swiss Pine Cone Tower with its tunnel slide. Furthermore there are stations such as the Swiss Pine Climbing Tree and the Swiss Pine Ball Run Facilities. The wooden balls for them are available for a fee at the valley station or directly at the intermediate station. But what makes the Swiss pine so exceptional? The essential Swiss pine oils have a calming effect, moreover the wood is of exquisite quality and very resistant.

Further up, at the mountain station, there are two other highligts: The Swiss Pine Carts, mountain go karts that take you for 4 km from the Sechszeiger mountain station until the Hochzeiger intermediate station, can be driven by children from 12 years of age and a minimum height of 150 cm. Furthermore, there are the two Hochzeiger Downhill Bike Trails: One of them, the 7 km long Hochzeiger Family Trail, starts at the mountain station of the Hochzeiger Cable Car, the other one, the new 4 km long Hochzeiger 2.5 Trail, at the mountain station of the 8-seater chairlift.
