Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail

The magic of panoramic hiking. Hike high above the valley over gently sloping ridges, with magnificent views as your constant companion. A panoramic hiking dream that has now come true in Salzburg’s Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region with the “Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail”. And it could not be more spectacular. Where else can you admire Austria’s highest mountains from such a vantage point?

Long hikes

The view from the southern Kitzbühel Alps over Pinzgau to the glaciated peaks of Hohe Tauern National Park is rightly the stuff of legend. Like a string of pearls, dozens of three-thousand-plus-metre peaks, from the Großer Wiesbachhorn to the Großglockner, the Kitzsteinhorn and the Großvenediger – to name but a few – rise up into the dark blue skies. So why not connect the well-maintained mountain trails and create a panoramic long-distance route? And choose an amazing starting point – the highest waterfalls in Austria, the thundering Krimml Waterfalls – and an equally beautiful destination: the azure waters of Zeller See lake. In between, the new Panorama Trail with its ten daily stages offers great hiking and unforgettable views.

The many alpine huts along the way are the perfect place for a break, and the end of the day means a night in hand-picked accommodation of your choice: high up above the clouds, or with all the creature comforts of the villages in the valley.

10 stages. 150 km.

This amazing Panorama Trail route can be accessed by cable cars and shuttle services at the various staging points. The Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail is the long-distance trail with surely the best views in Austria. And it is the ideal choice for hikers who prefer climbs with only moderate technical challenges and no exposed sections, but who still have the requisite stamina. Hikers who have no problem with six to seven hours' walking each day, but can gladly do without exposed climbs with a rope handhold. You do need alpine hiking experience, however: as you would expect for a “Panorama Trail”, much of the route is at an altitude of between 1,500 and 2,400 m. The multi-award-winning Trail Angels team at the official Panorama Trail information & booking centre will provide all the help and support you need on your independent hiking trip.
