Hiking and discovering
Hiking in the Upper Tauern National Park is truly a treat. No matter whether it's an easy hike along the Kölnbrein reservoir, a nice day-long tour on one of the three thousand metre mountains in the National Park or a challenging tour to the Hochalmspitze, there is sure to be something for everyone. Depending on the season and the time of day, a variety of animals and plants can be admired and observed in the Upper Tauern mountains.
The parking lot near the Kölnbreinsperre dam is the ideal starting point for many hikes and mountain tours. It's always worth stopping and standing still on the various hiking routes, in order to take a closer look or to listen carefully. Patience is often rewarded with wonderful discoveries.
