South Tyrol's biggest nature reserve is a dream location for hiking, Nordic Walking, and being in nature.
The 33 430 hectare area of the nature reserve comprises the whole Texelgruppe - stretched out mountain ranges between the Schnalstal Valley in the west and the Passeieretal Valley in the east, as well as parts of the Stubaier and Oetztaler Alps.
The Pfossental Valley with its quaint alpine pastures inhabited by innumerable marmots, ibexes and chamois, is the core of the nature reserve. Here plant and animal lovers can experience and observe nature in its original, untouched beauty.
Convenient location, safe and well-marked trails and accessibility make the nature reserve a hiker's paradise during summer.
The Meraner Hoehenweg is an almost 100 km long hiking trail that extends throughout the Texelgruppe.
The nine Spronser Lakes, each unique in colour and shape, are a special highlight of the region and the highest group of alpine lakes in South Tyrol.
