Hohe Tauern National Park

The largest protected area in the Alps attracts visitors with its ancient and rural mountain landscape.

With 1,856 square meters of area, the Hohe Tauern National Park is the largest protected area in the entire Alpine region. The area extends over vast ancient landscapes and glaciers as well as carefully and painstakingly manicured alpine pastures. The imposing surrounding mountain scenery, unspoilt flora and fauna and the natural way of life of the locals give this unique area its distinctive face.

The national park was founded in 1981 and has since been further developed by the three other provinces (Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol). This has helped it become Austria's largest protected area in the Alps.

In summer, the national park is a unique hiking and outdoor paradise. In winter, breathtaking ski resorts and a variety of leisure activities guarantee unforgettable holiday experiences.

The enchanting Rauris Valley extends through the Hohe Tauern National Park. The picturesque village of Rauris is located here, in what is otherwise known as the "golden valley of the Alps".
