Ötztal Nature Park –
Info Point Hohe Mut Alm

In close touch with High Alpine Research

Visitors interested in natural history can look forward to a magnificent Nature Park exhibition on 2670 meter high Hohe Mut Alm, centering on "Glacier - Climate - High Alpine Research". The exhibition's focus is in very close touch with the surrounding nature, offering great views of the mighty glaciers in the Alpine side valleys of Rotmoostal and Gaisbergtal.

Focusing on glacier and climate

The interactive exhibition in two languages (German/English) centers on life in and on the glacier, the imminent climate change and decades of high Alpine research in Ötztal. Selected exhibits on the high Alpine flora and fauna and the colorful variety of Obergurgl's stones are presented and explained on a surface of about 135 m². You can even get in close touch with real glacier ice.

10 stations provide insights into the most amazing research results. Its centerpiece is a huge multimedia touch table which communicates further information and scientific details about Obergurgl in a playful way. Among the other highlights ranks a 3500 year old ibex horn which was found in the immediate vicinity of the exhibition in 2011, it confirms the earlier presence of ibexes in this high Alpine area.


Scientif aim since 1951

High Alpine research in the area surrounding Obergurgl/Rotmoostal already has a long tradition. The Alpine Research Center was founded in a vacant customs house in 1951. Since then it has been supporting researchers and students working on a wide range of issues in Alpine habitats. For example, a branch institute of Innsbruck's University has been carrying out intensive research on long-term ecosystem monitoring.
