Rustic mountain huts, real wilderness and fantastic views

The mighty 3,798-metre high Großglockner - Austria's highest mountain - protectively flanks the Hohe Tauern National Park. The cool glacier wind blows from the Schmiedingerkees to Salzburg's highest viewing platform, the Krimml Waterfalls, the largest waterfalls in Europe, plunge hundreds of metres into the depths and the National Park Worlds exhibition presents visitors with ten different themes.
