Grossglockner High Alpine Road

Grossglockner High Alpine Road

The Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe owes its name to the Habsburg regent who, together with his wife Empress Elisabeth, called Sisi, visited Carinthia in 1856. On this occasion the mountain-loving monarch undertook a hike of several hours from Heiligenblut, which led him to the edge of the Glockner glacier Pasterze. This place, from where His Majesty Franz Joseph admired the 3,798 m high Großglockner, is named after him. You can reach the truly imperial vantage point today on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road easily by car, motorbike or bus! In addition to the mountains and glaciers, you can also observe numerous cute marmots and, with a bit of luck, the impressive ibex.


Krimml Waterfalls

The Krimml Waterfalls are among the most breathtaking excursion destinations in the entire Alpine region and amaze hundreds of thousands of guests from all over the world every year.
The origin of the Krimml Waterfalls is the Krimml Ache. It begins at the end of the Krimml Achental and first flows gently through approx. 20 km of flat alpine pastures, before reaching the valley exit as a thundering glacial stream and plunging down the enormous steps of the Krimml Waterfalls.
The catchment area of the Krimmler Ache is 110.7 km2, approx. 12% of which are glaciated. This makes the Krimmler Ache a typical glacial stream with strongly changing water conditions. In June and July, for example, 30 to 40 times more water flows than in February. Since the melt water from the glacier gate to the waterfalls (=18 km)
Discover the whole fascination of this spectacular natural spectacle in the Hohe Tauern National Park in the SalzburgerLand.

Hangar 7

Hangar 7 Salzburg

Immediately before the turn of the millennium - perhaps the date is coincidence, but probably the time was simply ripe - plans for Hangar-7 began in Salzburg. When it opened its doors in 2003, it was not only the airport that had been extended by an unusual building. Hangar-7 was more than "just" a modern aircraft hangar from the very beginning. The vision of the developers was to create Hangar-7 as a place where technology, art and entertainment meet.


Kaprun reservoirs

Kaprun reservoirs

The Mooserboden and Wasserfallboden reservoirs are located at an altitude of around 2,000 m between the imposing cliffs of the Hohe Tauern mountains. The VERBUND reservoirs in Kaprun are located high up in the Mooserboden reservoir, which is 2,000 m above sea level. There you can take part in a guided tour of the dam wall or gain insights into the eternal ice of the glacier world in the adventure exhibition.

By the way, a breathtaking landscape invites you to hike all around. Your day trip begins at the Kesselfall-Alpenhaus, which you can easily reach by car or coach. The bus takes you first through the Lärchwand tunnel, past the Limberg dam, the dam wall of the lower Wasserfallboden reservoir, past the Fürthermoar alp, up to the Mooserboden reservoir at 2,040 m altitude.

The Lärchwand inclined elevator will not be in operation in summer 2013 due to renovation work. Deep inside - into the interior of the Mooser dam 107 m, the Mooser dam rises almost vertically and at the same time bends to a length of 494 m between the rocks.

With a guided tour of the dam we offer those interested the rare opportunity to get to know the inner life of the building. Our expert staff will be happy to inform you about further details and many anecdotes from our long history ...


Ice giant world

The largest ice cave in the world

Even at the end of the 19th century, the cave in the Tennengebirge was known at best to hunters and poachers. It was not until 1879 that the Salzburg naturalist Anton von Posselt-Czorich penetrated about 200 metres into the darkness and officially discovered the ice giant world.

A year later he published a detailed report about his visit in the magazine of the Alpine Club, but the cave was forgotten again.
One year later the increasing number of visitors led to the construction of a footpath from Werfen and Tenneck to the Ice Cave.

In 1924 the ice part of the cave was continuously accessible and in 1925 a generous shelter was built next to the Forscherhütte. For around 25 years, the cave could only be climbed on foot.

Under rather adventurous conditions, it was possible to travel on the initially single-lane and unasphalted "Eisriesenweltstraße" from 1953 onwards and then, from 1955 onwards, to change to the cable car, which covers the steepest part of the route (1084 m - 1586 m) in just a few minutes.


National park centre

National Park Centre Mittersill

In the first room the Großglockner and the Großvenediger rise up as over 3 m high large reliefs as important pillars of the national park. An eagle sails high above. If one circles these summits on the visitor gallery, one virtually walks around the Hohe Tauern. In front of the summits, there are three large screen monitors diagonally facing the spectators on the north side and two on the south side of the Hohe Tauern. The 5 large screen monitors with film sequences from ScienceVision are - according to their location around the summits - assigned to the northeastern, northwestern, southwestern and southeastern valleys of the National Park.High Definition 3D Adventure Cinema

A crash of the continents in super slow motion - the African plate begins to drift north, the earth's crust is lifted, pushed into each other, folded and the Alps are formed. An elaborate animation in breathtaking stereoscopic images, produced by ScienceVision, allows the viewer to experience the emergence of the most famous mountains in the world in fast motion.


The Top 10

The Top 10 in Salzburgerland

Built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard, extensively extended by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach (1495-1519), it is the largest completely preserved castle in Central Europe.Built in 1077 by Archbishop Gebhard, extensively extended by Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach (1495-1519), it is the largest completely preserved castle in Central Europe.

Particularly worth seeing are the medieval princely rooms and the castle museum. Since 1892, the Hohensalzburg fortress has been easily accessible by funicular railway from the Festungsgasse.Mozart's birthplaceFor twenty-six years, from 1747 to 1773, the Mozart family lived on the third floor of the "Hagenauer Haus" in Getreidegasse No. 9, where their famous son Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on 27 January 1756. The house is named after its owner and friend the Mozarts, the merchant Johann Lorenz Hagenauer (1712-1792).Salzburg Cathedral

The probably most important sacral building of the city and at the same time spiritual centre, is the Salzburg cathedral. With its magnificent façade and mighty dome, it presents itself as an impressive monumental early baroque building on this side of the Alps. Its origin is closely linked to the nature and growth of the spiritual principality.

Destroyed by fires and rebuilt, enlarged and expanded, it bears witness to the power and independence of the Salzburg archbishops.
