Hohe Tauern National Park

Hiking in Austria's largest national park

The Hohe Tauern National Park is Austria’s largest national park with 1800 km². It is particularly beautiful because it is unique in terms of flora and fauna. The biodiversity in the Hohe Tauern National Park is great. From red deer to chamois, you will find animal species here that you would not otherwise encounter in the wild. Some of Austria’s highest peaks are located in the national park area. The Großglockner with its mighty 3798 m and the Großvenediger with 3666 m are located in the core zone.

The Hohe Tauern National Park is like a huge natural area that everyone can enter and where there is much to experience and discover. An appeal is made to the sense of responsibility of each individual so that this natural jewel is preserved.

From green valley floors to eternal ice. No two valleys are alike.

There is a lot to discover in the Hohe Tauern National Park: the Krimml Waterfalls (highest waterfall in Europe), the emerald findings in the Habach Valley, the Sulzbach Valley wilderness area, the Obersulzbach Valley as a starting point for the Grossvenediger Tour, and much more. Let us inspire you and follow your gut feeling.

Pure mountain pleasure

“Hans-Peter, what makes the Hohe Tauern National Park region in Salzburger Land so special for you? “

“As you may know, I am not a man of big words. I prefer to show our guests my home town in person – which can, of course, leave them speechless afterwards.

From deep green alpine pastures, game, forest and barren rocks, to crystal clear streams, thundering waterfalls and idyllically embedded mountain lakes, to eternal ice and imposing peaks – here in the Salzburg part of the National Park, there is simply everything.

The next alpine hut or inn is also never far away. An enjoyable stop and a little schnapps are simply part of a successful hiking day.”
