There’s an all-inclusive card for a holiday in the Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region from 29 May to 31 October, the Nationalpark Sommercard. Holiday guests receive this card on the day of their arrival from their hosts, and can enjoy free entry to more than 60 attractions, such as several cable cars, leisure and sports facilities, as well as free admission to sights, museums and natural spectacles.
The Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region offers holidaymakers an entire world brimming with variety in front of a stunning natural backdrop. Glaciers, waterfalls, alps, huts and regional specialties can be discovered on foot or with cable car, by bus, local train or car. The 13 National Park valleys with 19 pretty, well kept spots offer a wide selection of options for families, nature enthusiasts, hikers, ambitious athletes and connoisseurs. As the largest national park of the Alps, Hohe Tauern Natoinal Park is also particularly worth protecting. Sustainability and environmental concerns have always played an important role here.
