Hiking on the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail
The Hohe Tauern National Park is one of the most beautiful natural paradises in Europe. It stretches over 1,800 km² over Salzburg, Tyrol and Carinthia and makes the diverse alpine habitat tangible. A spectacular long-distance hiking experience now opens up the most beautiful places in this fascinating, dazzling national park. The 17 stages of the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail are dedicated to thrilling natural spectacles, exciting exhibitions, friendly locations and magical views.
Enduring hiking in the national park
17 stages, 275 kilometers of hiking, almost 14,000 meters of ascent and descent, a total walking time of approx. 96 hours: the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail poses a tough challenge even for experienced long-distance hikers. The start is at the roaring Krimml Waterfalls, a real place of power in western Pinzgau, while the quite tranquil mountain village of Hüttschlag in southern Pongau serves as a quiet, grounded destination. On the way there, you pass countless highlights, including Lake Zell, the gentle Pinzgau grass mountains and the gold veins of the Rauris Valley. One or the other stopover to linger and dream is a must.
Detour to Mittersill
Particularly hardened hikers can of course tackle the entire tour on several days in a row. It is particularly advisable for holiday guests to hike individual sections in order to take in the natural diversity of the Salzburg region in peace and quiet. How good that two stages of the long-distance hiking trail through the Hohe Tauern are heading straight for Mittersill! Stage 6 leads from the Pass Thurn to the Panorama-Alm and stops at the Mittersill National Park Center, one of the most beautiful destinations in the region. On the other hand, it gets quiet and lonely on stage 7, which focuses on one of the highest grassy mountains in Europe around the Gaisstein.
With the National Park Summer Card, which is already included in the room rate at our Hotel Bräurup, the trail hike is even more beautiful and spectacular. Many attractions along the way can be visited at a reduced price, and the journey to the starting points is significantly cheaper.
