Zirbenpark Hochzeiger Jerzens

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 in the Pitztal valley 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. Straight at the intermediate station, the Swiss Pine Water playground was constructed. Then the path leads into the Hochzeiger Swiss Pine Park (ZirbenPark Hochzeiger). Play, adventure and relax stations, in total 12, can be discovered. The highlight is the 12 m high ZirbenZapfen-Erlebnisturm (Swiss Pine Cone Tower) with its tunnel slide. New, however, are the wooden sculpture with ball run facility, and the four stations to build a cable car.

A popular attraction are the ZirbenCarts (Swiss Pine Carts). By these mountain go karts you can drive a 3.7 km long route from the Sechszeiger mountain station until the Hochzeiger 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.
