Protected areas

ÖTZTAL NATURE PARK was formed as an umbrella organization for all protected areas in the Southern Ötz valley following the decree of the Tyrolean federal government issued on September 19th, 2006. It spans an area of 500 km² and covers mainly alpine and high alpine areas in the Ötztal and Stubai Alps within the Municipality of Sölden. It is home to several areas that are particularly worthy of protection.
