Hohe Tauern National Park
The Hohe Tauern National Park, with the Rauris Valley at its heart, is 30 years old. 30 years of active commitment by numerous nature enthusiasts, supported by the provincial governments of Salzburg, Tyrol and Carinthia, gave this great scenic highlight in the Alps the chance to largely preserve its fauna and flora. For example, a year ago the sensation was perfect: after 25 years of the “Bearded Vulture Resettlement Project in the Alpine Region” in the Kruml Valley near Rauris, the first chick hatched in the wilderness of the Hohe Tauern. The newly established “King of the Skies” educational trail is just one of the many examples of the diversity of the national park. Anyone interested can find out everything to do with the largest birds of prey in the Alps in the modern adventure exhibition in the National Park House ‘Kings of the Skies’ in Rauris. Accompanied by national park rangers, the protected mountain world with its enormous wealth of animals and plants can be “explored” in an exciting way for people of all ages.
