Eindeloos plezier in Nationalpark Hohe Tauern EN
Encompassing over 1800 square kilometres, 342 glaciers, and more than 10,000 animal species, the Hohe Tauern National Park is an absolute must-see for all ages. You will find this world-famous mountain massif in the middle of the Central Alps of Austria. What makes this nature reserve so unique? 

Without a doubt, the mountain peaks, which rise head and shoulders above the other mountain peaks of Austria. This park was created in 1980 and was declared the first National Park of our beloved winter sports country. There are plenty of reasons to visit the impressive Hohe Tauern. Are you travelling with us?

Discovering the park

The Hohe Tauern National Park can be explored on foot, by bike or even by car; you will find extensive hiking trails that show you the beauty of this park flawlessly. However, a bicycle or car is a godsend for nature lovers who want to see more of the park. For example, you can take a fantastic bike ride on the more than 300 kilometres long Tauern cycle path or admire the scenery on one of the many highways in the Hohe Tauern National Park. For example, did you think of the Grossglockner that you can see during a Grossglockner High Alpine Road tour? However you choose to discover the park, you won't regret your visit!

Amazing activities

Mountain climbing, rafting on the Isel, and spotting the Big Five; these are just a few of the activities you can undertake in the Hohe Tauern National Park. Besides cycling and hiking, there are other activities that you can perform in this fascinating mountain landscape. You have also come to the right place for the ultimate winter activities. How about a day of skiing, snowboarding or cross-country skiing? After undertaking all these active sports, there is nothing better than resting your legs in a mountain hut. Fortunately, you will find plenty of them in the Hohe Tauern National Park! Moreover, you will have the chance to sample the tastiest local strudel here that you will not get enough of. Is your mouth already watering?
