National Park at its best

The Hohe Tauern National Park in East Tyrol invites you to take a look, be amazed and replenish your energy stores, thanks to its unspoilt natural landscape, huge mountain backdrop and fascinating animals. The experience is wide and varied – a hike with the National Park rangers, a holiday in a National Park partner business or a stop-off in a National Park inn of your choice, which completes your stay in the Hohe Tauern National Park in East Tyrol with the culinary range it has to offer. In the midst of the idyllic National Park mountains, the innkeepers provide you with fresh, regional and local dishes in a natural atmosphere.

National Park innkeepers have made it their philosophy to create local ‘tasty treats’ for gourmets. Whether it is lamb, game or fish from the water bodies in East Tyrol, herbs, schnapps or special thirst quenchers – as a guest you’ll find all this and more in the range of cuisine provided by the innkeepers in the National Park. This summer the emphasis is on local fare; ‘Schlipfkrapfen’, ‘Nigelen’ and ‘Schöpsernes’ are served up in a variety of ways. Anyone who doesn’t know anything about these tasty treats definitely should give them a go. See for yourself, re-energise after a hike and be amazed at the culinary treats on offer in the Hohe Tauern National Park here in East Tyrol.
