Hohe Tauern National Park

Austria's largest national park

The vastest National Park in Central Europe covers three federal provinces: Carinthia, Tirol and SalzburgerLand.
1.800 square kilometres of mountain area including Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner, and in between a land reminding of a commercial: narrow valleys, placid villages, extensive dark forests. These outstanding features of the Hohe Tauern National Park can really overwhelm you. How deal with this special feeling? Better approach this marvellous region carefully, step by step. You can of course do so on your own on a well-developed network of trails, or by joining one of the widely offered guided tours.

The national park ranger exactly knows where to spot ibexes at dawn, discover the nest of a Bearded Vulture or spot traces of gold in a mountain brook. What’s most impressive, however, is that little things like these lead you to the secrets of the national park, in special instances and short moments. And it’s in this way that the the Hohe Tauern will not overpower you.
