But the diverse nature around the main town in Isel Valley also knows to impress. Just a a few minutes away from the town centre, the extraordinary Gschlöss Valley is recognised as having the most beautiful valley head in the Eastern Alps. From here, unforgettable views of the impressive glacier world around the Grossvenediger open up. This mighty iceberg keeps watch over the wild and romantic Gschlöss Valley in the heart of Hohe Tauern National Park. All through the year, Matrei is also regarded as a regional centre for shopping, cultural life and a wide range of activities on the mountain and in the valley. Only 7 kilometres from Matrei lies the district of Huben, an ideal destination for nature lovers and hiking fans.
