Eastern Alps Sights


Hohe Tauern National Park

Hohe Tauern National Park Review

Hohe Tauern National Park is one of the most varied and unspoiled landscapes on the globe—high Alpine meadows, deep evergreen woods, endless spiraling rock cliffs, and glacial ice fields—and at 1,786 square km (690 square mi) the largest national park of central Europe. It touches on three states (Salzburg, Carinthia, and Tirol) and includes the Grossglockner group. The Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse passes through the park. The hardier traveler may want to spend a few days hiking and lodging at any one of several refuges, where one is sometimes treated to very rustic, homemade victuals (cheeses and hams).
