The tiny village of Gnadenwald nestling at the foot of the Karwendel Nature Park is best known for the beautiful, surrounding countryside and many sporting opportunities. The main attractions of the Karwendel are the walking and mountain tours, and of course, with a mountain bike, it is possible to fully explore the Tyrol's largest nature conservation area. The Karwendel Nature Park not only attracts ramblers and hikers, but also mountain bikers who are keen to explore the largest nature reserve in the Tyrol. The Hundskopf, with its panoramic
views and via ferrata, and the idyllic Walderalm are unique excursion destinations for mountain enthusiasts. Gnadenwald is simply an ideal starting-point for tours of this unique natural landscape. The wildlife observation station „Adlerblick 1522“ at the Hinterhornalm promises special mountain impressions. Talking about eagles, Tyrol’s new Eagle Trail (‘Adlerweg’) leads through Gnadenwald – as does St. James’ Path.
Even in winter, sports enthusiasts make the most of this cosy Tyrolean village. Cross-country skier have 10 km of track to enjoy. An especially family-friendly toboggan run rounds off the winter sports offering. But it's not just the natural surroundings that make a holiday in Gnadenwald such a special experience.
