Sport and wild nature in the west of Tyrol

The Pitz Valley and the Kauner Valley encompass a fascinating nature park and glacier region in the west of Tyrol. They offer visitors an ideal combination of peaceful tranquillity and wild nature, of sporting experiences and quiet recuperation. Accessible via the A12 Inntal Autobahn.

Our tip: To switch between the valleys, we recommend the side route over the Piller Höhe, crossing the Kaunergrat Nature Park.
