Hochzeiger Swiss Pine Park

A family-friendly circular path with a water playground in the Pitztal valley tells interesting things about nature and the Swiss pine.

The Swiss pine, a rare conifer, is also called "Queen of the Alps". A park at 2,000 m a.s.l. is dedicated to this beautiful tree. The Hochzeiger Cable Car take you up to the intermediate station, where a 1 km long hiking path with 12 stations starts. Because here on the Hochzeiger mountain 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, a water playground was constructed, called ZirbenWasser (Swiss Pine Water). Then the path leads into the Swiss Pine Park. 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 in 2020 are the wooden sculpture with ball run facility and the four stations to build a cable car.

A new 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.
