National Park Hohe Tauern

The roof of Austria

With 1,856 square kilometres, the National Park Hohe Tauern is the largest nature conservation area in the Alpine region. Imposing mountain top scenery with more than 300 three thousand metre peaks, blooming mountain pastures and a mountain farm cultivated landscape make the region a discovery area par excellence. The glaciers that tower up to the sky form the roof of Austria, with the country's highest peak, the Großglockner right in the middle.

The National Park Hohe Tauern was founded in 1981 and extends over the federal states of Tyrol, Salzburg and Carinthia. At the same time, the National Park Hohe Tauern is Austria's first national park. Here you experience the Alpine elemental force like nowhere else and will understand why we have made this theme our top priority at the Jesacherhof.

Besides a rich plant world you can also admire the "Big Five" in their natural habitat in the mountain region: ibex, golden eagle, bearded vulture, griffon vulture and chamois.

The National Park Hohe Tauern is a real experience all year round!
