A Holiday in Hohe Tauern National Park

Austria's largest national park

A stay at Schloss Mittersill means you will spend your holidays in the heart of the country's largest national park. Its foundations were laid in 1913 when 1,100 hectares of land were purchased in Amertal and Stubachtal. However, it was not until the 1970s that the provincial governors of Salzburg, Carinthia, and Tyrol initiated the establishment

of the national park, and it was thus founded in the 1981. The Hohe Tauern National Park Centre in Mittersill offers our guests a wonderful recreational area for leisurely walks and hikes, refreshing nature tours, and fascinating experiences in the three regional park centres.

Welcome to the largest high mountain national park: Hohe Tauern

The Hohe Tauern National Park, with its 1,856 km² area, is one of the largest national parks in Europe, and one of the greatest high mountain landscapes in the world.

After the retreat of the glaciers about 12,000 years ago, plants and animals from the Central Asian cold steppes, from the Arctic, but also from southern Europe, ventured tentatively into this new habitat. Today they form impressive and diverse communities at stunning heights. The Hohe Tauern National Park is home to Austria's most powerful peaks, the largest glacier areas in the Eastern Alps, and waterfalls amongst the highest in the world. Its mountain meadows are rich in species and its pastures have been created by the centuries-long nature-friendly work of mountain farmers. The Hohe Tauern National Park was and is Noah's Ark for thousands of animal and plant species. However, it is also a research area and an oasis of calm, authenticity, recreation, and discovery for nature-loving individuals.
