Exhibition “Grossglockner-Panorama”

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

The 7 km long Glockner 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 Groups and since recently it has one more attraction. The area called "Glocknerwinkel" at the Lucknerhaus inn at 2,000 m a.s.l. - 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 exhibition "Grossglocknerpanorama" was opened.

Due to its wood construction the Grossglockner Panoramic Building fits well with the surrounding nature. It houses a High Tauern Info Point as well as the "Grossglocknerpanorama" exhibition. Besides the "King of the Eastern Alps", how the Grossglockner - with 3,798 m the highest mountain of Austria - is called, the "Big Five" of the High Tauern are main topic. And who are they? 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.
