Exhibition “Grossglockner-Panorama”

In the Ködnitztal valley in East Tyrol, the permanent exhibition “Großglocknerpanorama” was opened in 2017.

The 7 km long Grossglockner High Alpine Road starts in the village centre of Kals, one of the municipalities of the High Tauern National Park, and leads into the rustic Ködnitztal valley. The valley is starting point for beautiful hiking tours to the Glockner and Schober mountain groups and since recently it has one more attraction. The area called "Glocknerwinkel" at the Lucknerhaus inn at 2,000 m asl - at the end of the alpine road - was newly arranged with sanitary installations, an electric filling station and parking spaces. And right here, the new interesting permanent exhibition "Grossglocknerpanorama" was opened in 2017.

Due to its wood construction the Grossglockner Panoramic Building fits well with the surrounding nature. It houses a High Tauern Information Centre as well as the permanent exhibition "Grossglocknerpanorama". Besides the "King of the Eastern Alps", how the Grossglockner - with 3,798 m the highest mountain of Austria - also is called, the "Big Five" of the High Tauern are main topic. And who are these "Big Five"? They are the famous representatives of the alpine world, ibex, chamois, eagle, bearded vulture and marmot.

The attractive offer of the exhibition "Grossglocknerpanorama" is topped off with elements of alpine nature, a national park education trail and a viewing platform. Weekly guided ranger tours with wildlife watching are further possibilities to discover the High Tauern National Park.
