The Kaunergrat Mountain Range is the Nature Park’s backbone and gave it its name. It proudly towers above the deeply incised Pitztal Valley and Kaunertal Valley at its sides. It is home to unspoilt nature and an intact cultural landscape that has been shaped by the hard work of the region’s farmers over the centuries.
The Nature Park was founded by nine municipalities from Pitztal Valley
Kaunertal Valley and Inntal Valley in 1998. In July 2003 the area around Kaunergrat Mountain Range was officially approved as Nature Park by the Tirolean provincial government.
