Nature Park Texel Group

Mt. Hohe Wilde and Hohe Weiße, Roteck and Tschigat, Sprons Lakes and Timmelsjoch pass – the Nature Park Texel Group offers high-alpine highlights and a wonderful natural landscape in lower altitudes. The nature reserve is characterized by exciting contrasts, being the home of a varied flora and fauna.

The Nature Park Texel Group north of Meran offers landscapes in completely different altitudes: Between the deepest and highest place of the protected area there are 3,000 m of difference in height. In fact, you can find all communities of South Tyrol here – from sub-Mediterranean to high-alpine.

From Passeiertal to Schnalstal

With a surface of 31,391 ha, the nature park embraces parts of the municipal areas of Naturns, Algund, Riffian, Moos in Passeier, St. Martin in Passeier, Partschins, Dorf Tirol and Schnals. The nature reserve encloses the entire name giving Texel Group and parts of the Stubai and Ötztal Alps. As the famous glacier mummy Ötzi and other finds prove, people were already on the move in the area of the nature park thousands of years ago.

Varied hiking paradise

The Meran high-alpine route is one of the most beautiful circular tours in the Alps: Those who master all stages, has surrounded the Texel Group in 5 to 8 days: In fact, hikers must have excellent stamina, surefootedness in some places and no fear of heights. One section, that is ideal for families, is the Adventure Trail Pfossental Valley: Along a path of almost 5 km, display boards and interactive elements show interesting information about Alpine farming, flora and fauna in the largest side valley of Schnals. The way back is the same. If you prefer more challenging tours, you should absolutely hike to the picturesque Sprons Lakes.
