Alpine pastures in the Hohe Tauern National Park

Alpine summer – that denotes aromatic hay, extensive flower-filled meadows, the sound of cow bells, taking a deep breath, enjoyment. The alpine pasture is a place filled with glorious romance, but it is also a place of hard, yet rewarding work. In the Hohe Tauern National Park there are some 350 alpine pastures which span 91,000 hectares. No other national park has such a high density of alpine pastures.

The 'water castle' of the Alps

Plummeting water, thundering mountain streams which channel their way through the rocks, and crystal clear mountain lakes too - all are natural spectacles which have a particularly strong appeal. The Hohe Tauern National Park with its 26 significant waterfalls, ten gorges, 551 lakes and 279 streams is a real 'water castle' in the Alps.

Out and about with the National Park Rangers

Adventurous, exciting and at times even dangerous – the day to day life of a National Park Ranger. The fact is that rangers in the Hohe Tauern National Park have a key role to play in maintaining the biggest conservation area in the Alps.
