Summer holidays - Family programme - Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

© MTS Austria GmbH For parents who wish to open their children’s eyes to the beauty of nature, there is no better teacher than the scenery of the Hohe Tauern National Park. It is more graphic than any book.

The National Park Centre in Mittersill brings the unique environment of the highest mountains in Austria and one of the mightiest waterfalls in the world all under one roof. Learn about the diversity of nature in its 8 different discovery rooms.

© MTS Austria GmbH The Krimml waterfallswith a drop of 380 m, are one of the special highlights in the region. At the bottom there is a very informative World of Water discovery centre.

Nearby, the famous High Alpine Road leads into the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park, to the Großglockner (3.798 m), the highest mountain in Austria, and its glacier, the Pasterze. The 80 km long High Alpine Road has 36 bends and rises up to 2504 m above sea level and promises to leave a lasting impression.
