The Krimmler Ache - Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria

Hohe Tauern National Park Centre

The impressive Hohe Tauern National Park Centre in Mittersill (a drive of about 30 minutes from Zell am See) is home to a modern exhibition concept, with a mystical cave, larger-than-life marmotte burrow, hayflower relaxing loungers, and more besides. The flora and fauna of the Hohe Tauern National Park are exhibited in a suitably modern way that is impressive enough to have been awarded the Salzburg Tourism Prize.
Sigmund-Thun-Klamm in Kaprun


The Kaprun Valley was covered by a glacier around 14,000 years ago that ate its way between the Maiskogel and the Bürgkogel. When the ice melted, it left behind an impressive gorge through which the wild water of the Kapruner Ache river still tumbles today. There are wooden walkways and numerous bridges leading you along the rock faces, winding through the gorge, and open for guests to marvel at the sight of the splashing river and fountains of water from May through to September. Under the title “Mythical night of water”, every month in July and August mystic torchlit walks take place followed by a romantic camp fire with a story teller present.
