Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

Explorer Tour
at the Kitzsteinhorn

  • Our tour will start at the valley station of the Gletscherbahnen Kitzsteinhorn mountain railways. The cable car will then take us up from 911 metres to 3,029 m, where the ranger will share interesting details about the fauna and flora of the national park. In the forest-free region in the area of the Langwiedboden we will walk to a small pond where we get to marvel at newts, Alpine salamanders, frogs and Alpine roses. The hike continues along the stream back to the cable car, which will take us to the next altitudinal belt. Here, the area becomes increasingly rocky and the air notably fresh. Our aim is the “Top of Salzburg” panoramic platform at a height of 3,029 metres above sea level, where we will be rewarded with a marvellous 360-degree-view of the high mountains that surround us. A visit to the National Park Gallery marks the grand finale of the Explorer Tour for all curious minds.

    The main highlights of this tour through the 360 metres tunnel lie in the energy and atmosphere of the high Alpine region we get to experience with all our senses, and in the magnificent and breath-taking views of the high Alpine world of the national park.
