Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

The Ibex House
in Heiligenblut

At the Ibex House you have the opportunity to experience the ‘king of the Alps’ and his habitat at close range.

  • Set off on a journey of discovery among the ‘rocky cliffs’ of our permanent exhibition, soar above the highest summits in the Hohe Tauern thanks to state-of-the-art technology, and savour the magnificent views of the Grossglockner from our panoramic terrace!

    As a one-stop shop that combines a fascinating exhibition, a service point, a restaurant, a multi-purpose hall and our National Park Shop, all under one roof, the Ibex House is also the ideal starting point for exploring the natural environment of the Glockner area itself.
