Who would turn down the chance to fly above the valleys of the national park with an eagle's eye, crawl into a marmot’s den or watch a creek bed from a pebble's point of view? Visitors big and small can experience all that and a lot more at the National Park Worlds in Mittersill. The museum is an indoor experience of the special kind, presenting the fauna and flora of the Hohe Tauern National Park by means of a spectacular exhibition.
A visit to the National Par worlds – this unique, 1,800 m² large alpine adventure world – really gets under your skin. Ten stations wait to be explored: Film crews spent 120 hours in a helicopter to create the amazing eagle flight panorama: Visitors can choose their preferred "eagle flight" by pushing a button.In the world of marmots, fun takes centre stage: In addition to a spectacular film of the changing seasons, a giant marmot den arouses children's interest. You can then go via the treasure chamber with its precious minerals, the 3D cinema and fairy-tale cave to the mountain forest gallery. Photos, sound bites and loungers await visitors in a mountain meadow summer setting, with wild water demonstrating the wealth of brooks, mountain lakes, marshes and waterfalls in the area.The avalanche dome is a 270-degree cinema box that offers magnificent images of an avalanche and the Krimml Waterfalls.Finally, a glacial world awaits with a block of real ice, a Pasterze Glacier Time Wheel and exciting information about glacier ice.
The absolute highlight is the 360-degree panoramic world with a diameter of around 16 m, in which the around 80 visitors get to see the beauty of the local nature and peaks in a whole new dimension with the very latest in HD projection technology.Thanks to elaborate time lapse footage with varying weather, light and shade conditions, plus an impressive soundtrack, you can view the Hohe Tauern from various perspectives:from the summit, from a glacier crevasse and hovering from the Rauris virgin forest.In the basement of the two-storey cylindrical building you'll find the national park exhibition "Making of national Park".
