Hohe Tauern National Park

Ibexes jump over craggy rocks, marmots whistle and eagles sway at lofty heights over the mighty Grossglockner. Whether leisurely hikes over mossy gentle forest soils and colourful Alpine meadows or summit experiences in a class of their own: nature simply inspires. Especially when it is as captivating as in Europe's largest national park.
