Mountain climbing in the Antholz Valley

The Rieserferner chain awaits many very beautiful mountain peaks. Some of them are rather tricky and require good mountain climbing knowledge. Sometimes glacier fields have to be crossed and exposed ridges have to be climbed. But in the Antholz valley, there are yet other opportunities to view the valley from above. Many summit hikes that are not so hard or, at the most, are of medium difficulty are at least as rewarding as climbing a glacier. But selecting the correct mountain climbing equipment is important in any case. It is also crucial to always pay attention to the weather conditions.

Hiking in the Antholz Valley

In the Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park, where striking mountain peaks clearly define the landscape and broad mountain meadows sprinkled with granite rocks extend beyond the Alpine pastures, mountain hiking becomes a very special experience. Fragrant meadow herbs, fresh mountain spring water, and whistling marmots are typical features of the Nature Park. Lovely, well-marked hiking trails lead to idyllic Alpine pastures and scenic lookouts. If desired, it is also possible to join a guided hike

Nature Park Rieserferner-Ahrn

The Rieserferner-Ahrn Nature Park primarily serves as a protected habitat for free-living plant and animal species. The protected area includes the municipalities of Rasen-Antholz, Percha, Gais, Sand in Taufers, Ahrntal and Prettau. The borders of the nature park area are drawn in the northwest with the Ahrntal valley, up to the Staller Saddle in the east and finally along the state border between Austria and Italy. To the south-east the Antholz valley forms the border and to the south the Pustertal valley. 
The cooperation with the neighbouring protected areas, Hohe Tauern National Park and Zillertal Alps High Mountain Nature Park, supports and promotes the preservation of the unique natural heritage.

Nature Park Visitor Center Rieserferner-Ahrn

Inside the Nature Park House, the history of the mountains' origins is illustrated with films and pictures, and various information on refuges, mountains and lakes is presented. For the little ones, the information is explained in a playful way. Critical topics such as glacier shrinkage are also addressed. There are also handicrafts, such as hand-carved animals and wickerwork. Specially designed information points provide additional information about the nature reserve and everything it has to offer.

Mountain Guide Martin Baumgartner


Alpine climbing, via ferrata, mountain hiking

My name is Martin Baumgartner, and I was born in 1987; I’m also known as Jochele Martin, because I grew up on Jochelehof farm. I trained as a motor mechanic, and I now manage Jochelehof farm together with my family. I love walking in the mountains, both in summer and winter. In 2018, I passed the “certified alpine skier guide” exam, and I will be happy to accompany you up into the mountains. You can choose one of the many classic routes or opt for one of the lesser-known trails.
