Great Walser Valley biosphere park

Environment and people in harmony

During your holiday at the Mittagspitze Alpine Hotel, you will be surrounded by unique unspoiled nature as far as the eye can see. The region owes its original, unspoiled beauty to its designation as a biosphere park.

Marvellous mountain flowers in Austria
Great diversity of nature

The UNESCO biosphere parks, established in 1976, are located around the world. The objective of these parks is to develop new and sustainable formats for interaction between people and the environment. These include concepts for the protection and sustainable development of the region, so that not just present but also future generations will be able to enjoy intact and diverse natural areas. If nothing else, you as a guest will be able to enjoy magnificent, carefully preserved and protected natural landscapes.

Nature in breathtaking diversity

Be enchanted by the uniquely unspoiled landscape of the Great Walser Valley. The valley's steep V-shape is impressive, together with slopes dotted with fields and meadows. Traditional haymaking methods have made the flower meadows of the valley the most colourful and diverse in the country.

Green Alps and high mountain peaks, steep ravines, thunderous streams, waterfalls and the clear Seewaldsee comprise a unique recreation area.  230 kilometres of hiking paths and nature trails invite discovery. Learn about the diverse flora and fauna of the region while hiking or cycling, especially in the Gadental conservation area with its magnificent orchids.

The Great Walser Valley is connected to public transport by a well developed network. The Wanderbus brings you comfortably from Damüls to the loveliest beauty spot in the biosphere park.

Winter idyll in the Great Walser Valley
