As soon as the first blanket of snow covers the mountains and valleys, it is clear: winter is here. But the white splendour does not remain untouched: Large and small animal tracks show that nature is not completely at rest - the perfect time for fresh air lovers to experience and explore the beauty of the Hohe Tauern National Park and the habitat of red deer, snow hare & Co. in many ways.
An exciting programme attracts nature lovers, active holidaymakers and families alike to the idyllic landscape, whose beauty is unparalleled in the cold season. Experienced national park rangers take you on winter and snowshoe hikes - e.g. to the Rauris primeval forest, the quiet Sulzbach valleys or the "Tannwald" in Uttendorf.
If you want to experience the wildlife almost up close in winter, you should join a wild animal feeding session. National Park hunters guide you to a secluded feeding spot in the Habachtal valley, where both roe deer and red deer - including capital stags - are fed hay. After a short, quiet hike, an observation hut awaits, from where you have the best view of the majestic animals.
The offer is rounded off by the National Park WinterCard. The bonus card, which is available in the winter season at participating partner businesses of the Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region, offers many advantages at numerous attractions in the region. A colourful variety of favourite places enables a personal, winter journey of discovery in the Hohe Tauern National Park.
