Brandberg, also known als the "sunny village", is a tiny but marvellous holiday village situated on the south-facing hillside of the "Zillergrund" amidst the High Mountain Nature Park Zillertal Alps. An imposing appearance also offers the local mountain of the community, the Brandberger Kolm. The small village at about 1.080 metres above sea level is surrounded by blooming meadows and dark green forests and offers its visitors a well-deserved rest and relaxation from everyday stress. You can still experience how the natural surroundings have affected the lives of the locals when you are out on a walk and see just how hard the mountain farmers work, for example along the "Bergmähderweg" trail.
High Alps Nature Park Zillertal Alps
The Nature Park stretches from about 1.000 m above sea level to 3.509 m over all the altitude leveles of the Central Alps. Depending on different factors just as altitude, exposure, geology or historical origin of individual sites the visitor will find different habitats as well as animal and plant species.
Due to the vertical extent of the High Alps Nature Park the number of habitats, the flora and fauna is very large. Glaciers cover a considerable part of the Nature Park and have shaped the landscape from time immemorial.
In addition to natural factors also the human being shapes today's natural and cultural landscape. His life and farming practices can be read in the landscape and create, especially in the Alps, a varying and romantic mountainous region.
The High Alps Nature Park offers a variety of opportunities for recreation. Either active in sports when hiking, climbing, mountain biking or delightful, unhurried on long walks through gorgeous and varied Nature Park landscape.
Experience the features and secrets of the Nature Park on one of our tours in the summer programme. You will be enchanted by the glittering world of minerals, adventurous stories from the time of poachers and smugglers or romantic torchlight hikes.
