With its 1856 km ² the Hohe Tauern National Park is the largest national park in the Alps with a unique and unspoiled Alpine landscape. It extends from about 1,000 m above sea level to the summit of the Grossglockner Mountain at 3,798 m. As far
as flora and fauna are concerned, a hike from the valley up to the glacier crowned peaks is as thrilling as an Arctic expedition - every climate zone between Central Europe and the North Pole can be experienced. The Hohe Tauern is a fantastic combination of towering peaks of up
to 3,000m, glaciers, waterfalls, Alpine lakes and lush green pastures making every walk or hike an unforgettable experience.
