Hiking in Texel Group Nature Park

Without any doubt, the Meran high alpine route is one of the most famous trails at Texel Group Nature Park. As well, the Sprons Lakes, which create the largest lake area in South Tyrol together, are always worth a visit. For families, we recommend a visit at Partschins waterfall. The tour to Mt. Roteck or Mt. Rotegg (3,337 m) requires sure-footedness and head for heights: The highest peak of Texel Group Nature Park can only be climbed by experienced mountaineers with via ferrata equipment.

Moreover, professional nature park guides accompany you on excursions, showing you the beautiful but sensitive ecosystem of Texel Group Nature Park, inviting you to treat nature respectfully.
