A winter holiday in the Hohe Tauern National Park

Winter and a winter holiday in the Hohe Tauern National Park is a genuinely regal affair. Since the Großglockner Resort Kals-Matrei is of course the area where you meet a king - the Großglockner, the king of mountains. Yet you shouldn’t be blinded by the majestic beauty and power and be overly impressed since there is a great deal of other things to discover in the Hohe Tauern National Park region. For instance the family ski areas of Virgen and Prägraten am Großvenediger.

Indeed, it is not just if you want to feel regal during your holiday or want to get out skiing with all the family, that you will find absolute winter joy in the Hohe Tauern National Park region. Since you can set out on one excellent ski tour or another here, while you get to enjoy an excessive amount of cross-country skiing on superb slopes and tobogganing too, not to mention snowshoeing and ice-skating. Anyone who has already explored and enjoyed the Hohe Tauern National Park on touring skis or snow-shoes knows what breath-taking beauty looks like and how complete joy feels in an instant.
