Nature Park Haus Hinterriss

Vomp

Tucked away among glorious Karwendel Mountain Range, the Nature Park House in Hinterriss is an architectural highlight in its own right. Moreover, this eye-catching building houses a museum unlike any other.

Myths and legends from the Karwendel Mountains, a bark beetle in a display case and the sound of a Natterer’s bat – the museum at the visitor’s center in Hinterriss, situated at the heart of Karwendel Nature Park, offers its visitors many interesting and often unusual insights into the surrounding Alpine habitats. While the building is well worth a visit for its futuristic design alone, the exhibition it houses reveals much about early mountaineering as well as the major role played by biodiversity and water in the Karwendel Mountains. Two of Europe’s last wild rivers, Isar and Rissbach, have their source here to the north of Innsbruck. The exhibition also gives visitors the chance to watch former Habsburg Emperor Maximilian I hunting in these mountains. Indeed, so renowned was the hunting in the Karwendel Mountains that the Rothschilds even travelled all the way from Paris to pursue one of their favourite hobbies here in Tirol.
