    Walking amidst high Alpine terrain we can take a closer look at an extraordinary variety of plants and animals. But also the countless brightly colored minerals and stones here in the uppermost part of Ötztal are definitely worth seeing. Not only the unique Ötztal garnet gemstone (almandine) but also hornblende, quartz and marble can be admired in all their beauty. Listen to the entertaining stories of our nature park guide on your hike up to Hohe Mut Alm (2670 m) where you will be surprised by a phenomenal 360-degree view. The new Nature Park Info Point is perfect for explorers who while away the day.
