Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail

At eye level with Austria's highest mountains

A long-distance hiking experience in a class of its own!
You will hike above the valley on gentle mountain ridges, always accompanied by an overwhelming view! The "Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail" makes it true. The view from the southern Kitzbühel Alps across the Pinzgau region to the glaciated giants of the Hohe Tauern National Park enjoys an almost legendary reputation, and rightly so: "Strung like a string of pearls, dozens of three-thousand-metre peaks rise into the deep blue sky, from the Großvenediger to the Großglockner, the Kitzsteinhorn and the Großes Wiesbachhorn."

  • Impressive start: Krimml Waterfalls
  • Tranquil destination: Mountaineering village Hüttschlag

From the Krimml Waterfalls to Hüttschlag

From the particularly attractive starting point at the foot of the wildly thundering Krimml Waterfalls, the trail leads over the azure-blue Lake Zell to the tranquil mountaineering village of Hüttschlag. In between, the new Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail enchants you with intense hiking pleasure and unforgettable views on 17 daily stages: While on the first 12 stages you can view the Hohe Tauern from the loge of the Kitzbühel Alps or Salzburg Slate Alps, on the other stages you hike into the heart of the Hohe Tauern to the foot of the three-thousand-metre peaks.
