The natural jewel and in the middle ...
of the National Park Lodge Großglockner
The Hohe Tauern National Park is the largest national park in Austria and the largest protected area in the Alpine region. The 1,856 km² area extends across the federal states of Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol and includes one of the last large natural landscapes in Austria.
Describing Heiligenblut am Großglockner is not that easy. There is so much to discover and tell.
At first glance, time seems to have stopped. And this impression is not entirely wrong, since Heiligenblut did not go along with the mass tourism hype and the related building madness - a deliberately unconscious decision that is now paying off.
The Hohe Tauern National Park is the largest national park in Austria and the largest protected area in the Alpine region. The 1,856 km² area extends across the federal states of Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol and includes one of the last large natural landscapes in Austria. The area is divided into a core zone under strict protection and an outer zone.
He is the undisputed symbol of Austrian mountaineering dreams, the Großglockner. The tour to its 3,798 m high summit and to the most famous summit cross in the country is not only long and high, it is also technically demanding and is therefore withheld from people who have a base of alpine skills. Many paths lead up and many steep flanks go down again.
Grossglockner High Alpine Road
The trip to Heiligenblut is a real pleasure when the Großglockner High Alpine Road is open. It is navigable from the beginning of May to the end of October, depending on the weather conditions.
The coveted Tauern gold
The search for the legendary Tauern gold in the Hohe Tauern can be traced back to antiquity. With unimaginable efforts today, the precious metal was wrested from the mountains around our lodge in the manual underground mining operation. And even today you can go on a journey through time to the past, golden times and with a bit of luck and patience you can even find a little gold dust while panning for gold.
