Mountaineering in the Hohe Tauern National Park – fulfilling

The summits alone sit majestically enthroned above Virgental and Iseltal and its romantic lateral valleys. The Hohe Tauern is a paradise for mountaineers, radiating unspoilt and primitive energy. Giant mountains such as the Großglockner and the Großvenediger are waiting to be scaled.

Natural monuments

The route to the summit in the Hohe Tauern National park proceeds past breathtaking natural monuments. Whether in Defereggental, past the Umbal Falls or in Gschlösstal, unbelievable images, views and perspectives open up to mountaineers. Natural wonders.

The Hohe Tauern National Park – climbing in the King of the Alps

The town Kals am Großglockner strikes a special chord with climbers. Kals is a place of yearning for anyone who wants to scale the Großglockner - the King of the Alps. But the via ferrata route to the Blauspitz (2575 metres) provides challenging climbs. The 200 metre western ridge has fixed secure cable points throughout. After around an hour of climbing – difficulty level C – D – you get to the summit of the Blauspitz.

Countless climbing routes

Asides from absolute dream routes for climbers, the Hohe Tauern National Park has a variety of climbing routes, in all difficulty levels. The mountain schools in the region are particularly recommended.
