Hohe Tauern National Park

The Hohe Tauern National Park is a national park in a rather extreme position. Despite the harsh living conditions, the Hohe Tauern host a variety of biotope types that cannot be found anywhere else in Austria. Some of them belong to the most species-rich in the entire alpine region. An example of these biotope types are the colorful mountain marshes.
The Hohe Tauern can be deemed the “roof” of Austria. More than 300 peaks over 3,000 metres of altitude rise into the sky. One of them is the renowned Grossglockner, the highest mountain in our country.

Today, almost 180 km² of the National Park are still covered by glacial ice.

279 natural mountain streams—the lifelines of the landscape—plunge from these high mountains down into the valleys.

The Grossglockner

At 3,798 metres, it is the highest mountain in Austria and the most breathtaking natural monument in the region.

 

1800 marks the year in which the first ascent of the Grossglockner took place. An expedition led by Prince-Bishop Franz Xaver Count Salm-Reifferscheid, pastor Horrasch from Döllach and the brothers Klotz made it to the top for the very first time.

 

There are endless possibilities and several different levels of difficulty!

 

Your host Johann Rogl is more than happy to advise you. As a mountain and ski guide, he knows the Grossglockner like the back of his hand.
