Excursion to the majestic Alpine peaks
Without exaggeration, the Hohe Tauern National Park can be considered one of the most overwhelming landscapes in the world. It extends into the provinces of Salzburg, the Tyrol and Carinthia and is of great significance for the Oberpinzgau region. Indeed, it is the natural landmark of the region. Its huge variety of species inhabits many different altitudes, from the valleys to the 3,000-metre-high peaks.
The National Park Worlds in Mittersill are an ideal introduction to the Hohe Tauern National Park. A 3D cinema and information about the formation of the Alps and the glaciers illustrate the value of the protected area. Admission is free with the National Park Sommercard!
The top excursion destination on your holiday in Salzburger Land is the Krimml Waterfalls, Austria's highest waterfalls. This spectacular natural phenomenon can be marvelled at on a hiking tour of around one and a half hours in the middle of Salzburg's Pinzgau region.
- Europe's highest waterfalls
- Height: 380 metre
- Waterfall trail with viewpoints
As many as 120 alpine huts are spread across the Salzburg part of the national park. Plan a beautiful hike with your family during your holiday in the Hohe Tauern National Park and enjoy typical mountain dishes such as Pinzgauer Kasnocken or homemade delicacies such as bacon, curd cheese dumplings and fruit cakes with seasonal fruits as a reward for your hard work. Best enjoyed on the terrace with a mountain panorama. Most alpine pastures are open between around mid-June and the end of September. Check in advance if you are heading for a particular hut!
