The Glacier Education Path in the High Tauern National Park starts in Innergschlöss near Matrei in Osttirol, one of the most beautiful alpine valley heads. From the Matreier Tauernhaus tavern at 1,511 m a.s.l., Innergschlöss is accessible within a 1.5-hour walk. The path proceeds past the rock-hewn chapel known as Felsenkapelle. Alternatively you can use the shuttle service to come there.
The Glacier Education Path (Gletscherlehrweg Innergschlöss) leads you from Innergschlöss in 4 hours - by overcoming 500 metres in altitude - and past 24 observation points across the impressive Venediger Group with its glaciers, which formed this natural landscape. The nature is unique and spectacular: The lammergeier can be watched from close up.
One highlight along the path is the deep blue Lake Salzboden at 2,137 m a.s.l. and another small mountain lake with cotton grass, called "Eye of God". Also impressive is the end of the path, the forefield of the Schlaten Glacier, where you can experience the power of nature from close up. In summer, guided tours with the national park rangers are on offer.
