Situated in the heartland of Austria and the Eastern Alps the Hohe Tauern National Park has international status as a World Heritage Site. Its stunning valleys are headed by scores of peaks, centred on the Gross Glockner, at 3798m Austria’s highest mountain, and are home to some of the best huts in the Alps.

This guide describes five routes, in the Reichen Group, the Venediger Group and the Gross Glockner, any of which would make an ideal introduction to the delights of Alpine trekking.

4 multi-day treks described and a 10-day traverse of the whole region outlined.
