Exhibitions in Mayrhofen-Hippach
Exhibition in Laimach
The ancient "Strasser Häusl" farmhouse in Laimach, Hippach in Zillertal is a very special place of interest. It is the former home of the Strasser children, who introduced the world to the famous Christmas carol "Silent Night, Holy Night".
The ancient farmhouse looks more or less the same now as it did 300 years ago and reveals much about the frugal life led by the Zillertal farmers of yesteryear.
Exhibition at the nature Park House in Ginzling
The centrepiece of the nature Park can be found in Ginzling - the visitors centre with the Nature Park administration and the family friendly interactive exhibition "Gletscher.Welten - Glacier.Worlds": No glass cabinets or signs saying "Do not touch" - quite the contrary: visitors are encouraged to touch and interact with the exhibition, which takes you on a journey in search of a lost expedition in the Zillertal Alps...
Open daily in summer from 8.30 - 12.00 hrs and 13.00 - 17.00 hrs!
Exhibition at the Mitterstall Barn in Brandberg
One of the mountain farming cultural monuments in the Nature Park region is the Mitterstall Barn in Brandberg Village. This listed building houses the Nature Park exhibition "Brandberg - our cultural landscape through the ages". The exhibition tells about the arduous conditions associated with alpine farming with its characteristic meadows, pastures, mountain grazing areas and gives locals the chance to tell their story.
Open daily - free admission!
"Steinbock.Welten - Ibex World"
Exhibition in Zillergrund
The alpine ibex (Capra ibex) is an animal that has a deeply rooted tradition at the Zillertal Alps Nature Park and, until recently, a very chequered history. Up until the beginning of the 17th century there was a population of several hundred animals, which was almost eradicated over a short period of only 15 years. Despite many attempts in subsequent years to reintroduce ibex to the Zillertal Valley, there is currently only a very small wild population which visitors to the Nature Park rarely get to see. The Steinbock.Worlds in Zillergrund gives you the opportunity to find out more about this fascinating animal, as well as the opportunity to see some in the flesh!
Open daily from June to September - admission is free!
"Pfitscher Joch unbounded"
Exhibition at the Lavitzalm
In addition to the fabulous alpine landscapes, another highlight can be enjoyed along the hike to Pfitscher Joch from the end of June – a visit to the new exhibition „Pfitscher Joch grenzenlos - Pfitscher Joch unbounded“. There you will see the results of many years of research on this alpine pass. The journey back to the Stone Age is particularly exciting, proving that the Pfitscher Joch had special significance as long as 9,000 years ago!
The exhibition is open daily during the summer months, admission is free!
