Wanderhotel Taurerwirt

Mountain adventure between Großglockner and Lienzer Dolomites

Active at the foot of the Großglockner

Our hotel enjoys a unique location at an altitude of 1,500m, in the village of Kals. This is where the road ends and the Hohe Tauern National Park begins. Our 3 hiking guides will show you the natural treasure of the region, at any time of year. The tours will take you past waterfalls and pastures up to Austria’s highest point. Afterwards, relax in the GlocknerSpa or the pond in the hotel garden with panorama views.

A vast network of hiking trails runs through the spectacular Hohe Tauern National Park: these trails run past waterfalls, through forests, across meadows, over alpine pastures, and continue up to the breathtaking views atop one of the 60 three-thousanders found here. The Glockner, Schober and Granatspitz mountain groups offer some of the most beautiful hiking options: the spectrum goes from easy walks in the pasturelands to summiting Austria’s highest point: Grossglockner Mountain. A few kilometres away, the craggy peaks of the Lienzer Dolomites provide further incentive to get out there on the trail.
