Zieltal / Val di Tel / Zieltal valley hiking from hut to hut

General description

"Of water and of light" - untouched nature in the Zieltal valley in the Texel Group Nature Park!
At the back of Partschins/Parcines lies the spectacular water-rich Zieltal valley in the middle of the Texel Group Nature Park.
Water is an essential basic element of the nature park. It appears in the Zieltal as a waterfall, spring or rushing stream and here it also impressively demonstrates its shaping and landscape-forming power. Here the Zielbach river plunges into the depths as an almost 100 m high Partschins/Parcines waterfall.

This hike through the Ziel Valley, in the heart of the Texel Group Nature Park, will give you a unique experience of nature!
This hike is only recommended for hikers in good physical condition!
