The villages of the Kaunertal Nature Park & Glacier Region

FENDELS (1,352 m) Fendels is located at 1,352 m above sea level and has fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Here you can enjoy traditional winter atmosphere high above the everyday hustle and bustle. During the winter, Fendels is a family-oriented skiers’ paradise with 16 kilometres of slopes (with easy and more difficult slopes) and a 4.5-km long sledging slope. Don’t miss out on night skiing and night sledging (every Thursday). KAUNS (1,050 m) The resort village of Kauns has an idyllic location above the Kaunertal and Inntal valleys. The atmosphere is calm, relaxing and has plenty of country charm. With many major ski resorts nearby, the opportunities for a varied winter holiday are endless. Also, take the opportunity to explore the numerous hiking trails that lead through enchanted winter landscapes. KAUNERBERG (1,270-1,600 m) The village of Kaunerberg is a scattered settlement located at the entrance to the sunny Kaunertal valley. Wonderful hiking trails invite you to experience just how picturesque wintertime can be. Cross-country skiers need only take a few steps from the “Gachen Blick” onto the famous “Hubertus” slope. Downhill skiers can enjoy the many major ski resorts located close at hand. KAUNERTAL (1,287 m) The six hamlets of Nufels, Platz, Vergötschen, Unterhäuser, Feichten and Grasse add up to one of the most beautiful valleys in Tyrol – the Kaunertal. Its namesake, the glacier area at the foot of the Weißseespitze peak, guarantees enough snow for all kinds of winter sports from autumn to late spring. Aside from the fascinating skiing and snowboarding opportunities, we also offer many other attractive winter activities. ACTIVE.WINTER.HOLIDAY

Friends of Nordic sports can enjoy over 25 km of cross-country trails in the Kaunertal valley - 25 km of which are suitable for “skaters” and 2 km of which are barrier free (handicap accessible). Kaunertal offers cross-country ski trails in the valley as well as the Hubertus high-elevation trail at the Nature Park House Gachenblick. This diverse and wonderfully prepared cross-country skiing network provides a welcome change of scenery and unique natural landscapes. Because the Kaunertal cross-country trail extends throughout the entire valley, visitors can access the trails directly from their accommodation. For “Nordic-style” fun and excitement, this area can’t be beat!

Information and rules to be observed For the safety and enjoyment of all guests, we kindly ask you to observe some simple rules. Don‘t litter - throw away your trash at home. Dog’s must be kept on a leash. We kindly ask all dog owners to bring dog waste disposal bags (bag dispensers & receptacles can be found along the cross-country trail).

Enjoy carefree hiking along well-maintained paths with little difference in elevation. Hikers will hear the rushing of water from the babbling brook and enjoy the silence of snow-covered meadows. Hiking in fresh, cold, and clear mountain air is the definition of winter romance. The Kaunertal Nature Park Region also has plenty of idyllic walking trails in the valley as well. Or enjoy a hike in Fendels or at the “Gachen Blick” viewpoint area. Information and rules to be observed For the safety and enjoyment of all guests, we kindly ask you to observe some simple rules. Hike only on the signposted winter hiking trails. Don’t litter – throw your trash away at home. Don’t hike on the cross-country runs. Otherwise the tracks for skiers will be ruined. Keep your dog(s) leashed at all times. We would kindly ask all dog owners to use waste-disposal bags (bags and waste-disposal receptacles are located along the winter-hiking trails).

Our valley’s cultural heritage

Cultural heritage & sightseeing

Web You don’t have to ski to have a great time in the Nature Park & Glacier Region Kaunertal, and “boring” is not part of our vocabulary. The challenge would rather be whether you have enough time to see everything during one stay. Our region is simply a great place to be for families with children. 48

Piano evenings. Berneck fortress in Kauns

The fortress of Berneck stands proudly 130 m above the entrance to Kaunertal valley. First documentations date back to the year 1225, and historians assume that the fortress’ original function was to guard transit routes. At the end of the Middle Ages it fell into ruins, but has recently been restored with much care. Contact: Michael Schmid Tel. +43 (0)664 7505 3179, For tours see the weekly programme Schlosshäuser (castle houses), Kauns

Three old and beautifully decorated farmhouses that once belonged to the Berneck Fortress, the so-called “Schlosshäuser,” are located in Kauns. Today, the three castle houses are in private ownership and local farming families live here. The history of Kaiser Maximillian can be recognised from the paintings on the exterior.

EXPANSION OF THE KAUNERTAL POWER STATION In spite of demands from the on-going energy revolution, the abandonment of fossil fuels, and the implementation of energy-saving measures, the market demand for electricity will continue to grow. It is therefore necessary to rely more heavily on local energy sources in the future. TIWAG is therefore planning to expand the Kaunertal power station by adding an additional upper level in the Platzertal valley, a second lower level in Prutz, and a 2nd power station in Imst. To generate power, TIWAG is planning to divert water from the rear of the Ă&#x2013;tztal valley directly to a reservoir in Gepatsch where it will be utilised. Water that originates from the Platzertal valley area and flows into the reservoir will also be used to generate electricity. 50

Reservoirs and their usefulness

Gepatsch reservoir (presently in use): 140 million m³ Platzertal reservoir (new) 42 million m³ When full, the reservoir in the Platzertal contains 23x the volume of the Piburger lake in the Ötztal valley. When flowing to Prutz to generate energy, the Platzertal reservoir can generate 152 million kilowatt hours (kWh), which is enough to power the entire Ötztal valley for 1.5 years. Energy production from natural sources

913 million kilowatt hours (kWh/year) of renewable energy from water power. In order to produce this much energy with a coal-fired power station, approx. 250,000 tons of coal would have to be burned. Plenty of electrical energy from little water: Thanks to the steep landscape, a drop of 633 m to the upper station and 820 m to the lower station, 3.55 kWh of electricity can be generated from a single cubic metre (m³) of water.
