Holidays near the Hohe Tauern National Park
Enjoy Nature in the Austrian Alps
Only 8km away from the Hotel Edelweiss is the national park town of Hüttschlag. The entire Hohe Tauern National Park encompasses over 1,800 square kilometres and is the largest national park in the Alps – a unique natural display that you shouldn’t miss seeing.
An absolute must on your holiday: set aside time for a trip to this awe-inspiring natural sight and for a visit to the town of Hüttschlag – the gateway to the park.
National Park Town of Hüttschlag
In just 10 minutes, you can reach the national park town of Hüttschlag from Edelweiss. Since the beginning of the 1990s, the town has been included within the borders of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The Info Centre for the national park is also home to a local history museum, where you can learn about the history of the Grossarl Valley and about the surrounding nature. Hüttschlag is also a great starting point for a guided hike through the Hohe Tauern National Park.
Pure Nature in the Hohe Tauern National Park
The location, the difference in elevation and the overall naturalness ensure variety in the flora and the fauna of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The animals of the Alps, those that you would otherwise see very rarely, are quite at home in the national park: groundhogs, chamois and the rare alpine Ibex can be seen with a little luck on a hike through the park. An especially rare animal, but one that can be found in the Hohe Tauern National Park, is the griffon vulture. The national park is a highly recommended excursion destination, even for families.
