Austria - Hohe Tauern National Park (Chapter)
This is the Hohe Tauern National Park chapter from Lonely Planet’s Austria guidebook.
Welcome to Austria's outdoor wonderland and one of Europe's biggest nature reserves. Try as we might, no amount of hyperbole about towering snow-clad peaks, shimmering glaciers, impossibly turquoise lakes and raging waterfalls can quite do this place justice.
- buckle up for a rollercoaster ride of Alps and glaciers on the Grossglockner Rd, one of Austria’s greatest drives
- hear the thunder of the misty Krimml Falls, Europe’s highest waterfall at 380m
- restaurants & accommodation
- feel 10 years younger bathing in the radon-laced waters of Bad Gastein, hailed for their healing properties
Coverage includes: Zell Am See, Grossglockner Road, Heiligenblut, Krimml, Gerlos Alpine Road, Bad Gastein & around and Lienz.
