Hohe Tauern - East Tyrol
In the national park region Hohe Tauern, there are the highest mountains of Tyrol.
The holiday area Hohe Tauern, which includes the territory from Matrei to the Defereggental valley is considered to be one of the original landscapes of Austria. The 150 km long mountain ridge extends from South Tyrol/Italy to the Salzburger Land. Some of the mountains of 3,000 metres are for example the Grossvenediger (3,662 m asl), the Grossglockner (3,798 m asl) and the Hochgall (3,436 m asl).
The Hohe Tauern National Park has been founded about 25 years ago and is considered to be one of the largest protected areas of Central Europe. This region is worth more than being visited only once - numerous educational trails provide useful information and maybe you even catch sight of a marmot or a chamois! An insight into the culture of this country is provided when the farmers’ markets or other traditional events take place.
