What could be better than exploring the unique and magnificent mountains of Pinzgau and of Zillertal on foot? Pack a hearty snack in your rucksack and put on your hiking boots: there are 400 km of hiking trails to explore. Discover the most beautiful and fascinating walking region in Oberpinzgau here in Krimml-Hochkrimml. Head out through Hohe Tauern National Park, ramble across alpine pastures or take adventurous mountain hikes. Escape from the stress of everyday life and reenergise in the crisp, fresh alpine air.
266 peaks over three thousand metres and 342 glaciers: nature is at the heart of life in the 20 towns and villages and 13 valleys in the Hohe Tauern National Park region. Discover the wonders and hidden treasures of the largest nature reserve in Central Europe on wonderful hikes and genuine adventures.
The mighty 3,798-metre Großglockner – the highest mountain in Austria – rises protectively over Hohe Tauern National Park. Feel the cold wind from Schmiedingerkee glacier on Salzburg’s highest viewing platform; experience the amazing Krimml Waterfalls, the largest in Europe, plunging hundreds of metres into the depths; visit the National Park Worlds exhibition and immerse yourself in ten different “worlds” at once.
