Lying at an elevation of 2,000 metres on the Hochzeiger mountain in the Pitztal Valley, the Stone Pine Park with its natural beauty and many family-friendly activities makes for a perfect summer day out.
The Swiss pine is known as one of the most hardy trees in the Alps, producing excellent wood and essential oils said to have healing and calmling properties. Located next to the middle station of the cable car, the Stone Pine Park on the Hochzeiger mountain has a 1,000-metre-long educational trail where visitors of all ages can learn about the "Queen of the Alps", as the Swiss pine is known. The highlight (literally!) is the 12-metre-high pinewood tower with a 16-metre-long slide. Further attractions include a water play area, a 3.7-kilometre-long mountaincart course winding its way down from the top of the Sechszeiger cable car to the Stone Pine Park, plus lots more interactive activities based on the theme of pinewood. The Achtersesselbahn Hochzeiger 2.5 chairlift has recently been renovated, so the park used the opportunity to invite younger visitors to have a go themselves by creating a mini building site where they can learn how huge chairlifts and cable cars are made. While kids get all hands-on, parents can sit down, relax and simply enjoy the views of the Pitztal Valley.
