The highest peaks, the most beautiful waterfalls, the mightiest glacier, the clearest lakes and streams, and the most majestic animals in the Alps... All of that makes the Hohe Tauern National Park what it is – a piece of heaven on earth. The untouched nature in the core zone and the man-made cultural landscape of the alpine pastures and mountain meadows are good foundations for the almost unbelievable biodiversity in the heart of the Alps. The Hohe Tauern National Park is, without doubt, one of the most magnificent high-mountain landscapes in the world.

The park's protected zone is the largest in the Alps. The “Tauern Fenster” (“Hohe Tauern Window”) is geological evidence of an immensely large variety of different rock formations, and the diversity of the alpine flora and fauna in the area.
