High Tauern - East Tyrol

In the High Tauern National Park, with Mt. Grossvenediger and Mt. Grossglockner there are the highest mountains of Austria

The holiday area High Tauern in East Tyrol, which includes the territory from Matrei in Osttirol 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 in Italy to the Salzburger Land in Austria. And right here there's the High Tauern National Park, the largest protected area of Central Europe. This region is worth more than being visited only once - an insight into the culture is provided when the traditional events such as the cattle drive in autumn take place.
