So it is no wonder that the National Park Region Hohe Tauern in East Tyrol attracts especially nature lovers, jocks and people in search of relaxation. Most of them settle down in Matrei in East Tyrol, the largest municipality in the valley Iseltal apart from Huben and St. Johann im Walde. The valley Virgental with the villages Virgen and Prägraten am Großvenediger and the valley Kalsertal with Kals am Großglockner form part of the National Park Region Hohe Tauern, too.

On the whole the National Park Hohe Tauern extends over an area of more than 1,800 square kilometer, so it is the largest one in Central Europe and in the Alps. More than 600 square kilometers are located in East Tyrol or rather to the south of the mighty mountain range Hohe Tauern, reaching from the Rieserferner group to Mt. Großvenediger and Mt. Großglockner, the highest mountain throughout Austria with a 3,798 meter high peak. It is perfectly obvious that here mountains, pastures and unforgettable tours are high on the agenda.

If you would like to get to know the splendid mountain world very closely, you can choose for instance one of the interesting nature and theme trails. In order to discover the specialties of nature off your own bat you can also take many hidden and winding paths.

All in all, outdoor fun knows no bounds, whether you leave home in the morning wearing climbing boots, cycle shorts or a tennis dress. Also horse lovers, passionate anglers and all daring people, who would like to try rafting or canyoning, will get their money's worth.

Nevertheless the National Park Region Hohe Tauern in East Tyrol offers not only natural sights. Some works of art and buildings made by human hand are worth seeing, too - among them numerous picturesque chapels, churches and wayside shrines, as well as monuments and museums such as the National Park house in Matrei.
