The path “Following the traces of wild animals” in the Pitztal valley is dedicated to the wild animals and their way of life.
40 years ago, the ibex was repopulated in the Pitztal valley, and still today this impressive mountain inhabitant can be found here in the heart of the Alps. An adventure path near Arzl im Pitztal has been dedicated to it and to the other wild animals of the region.
The Wild Animal Adventure Path Pitztal (Wildtier-Erlebnispfad Pitztal) starts at the Waldeck tavern above the district of Wald. The 1.5 km long circular path is interactive: Here you experience how far the animals can jump, or which tracks they leave, furthermore you can compete with them. The single stations are called - just to name a few - "Ansitz"(Residence) or "Auf der Pirsch" (Go hunting).
The theme path can be combined with a tour to the Earth Pyramids in the Waldertal valley. It starts at the sports ground of Wald, proceeds on the forest path towards the toboggan run and the Walder Sawmill, and turns back along the Wild Animal Adventure Path. A family experience!
The path is accessible all year round (depening on the weather and the snow conditions).
