Best of Austrian Alps Guide

Print this guide 
Austrian Alps
The majestic Austrian Alps stretch across the country, an awe-striking area of Ice Age valleys, verdant heaths and alluvial cones within Europe's largest national park, 700-square-mile Hohe Tauern. Taking in the dramatic cities of Salzburg and Innsbruck and the beautiful province of Tirol, home to spectacular skiing and hiking, as well as Gross Glockner, Austria's highest peak, and some of the world's best winter and summer sports playgrounds, the Austrian Alps are an outdoor lover's paradise.

Der Besuch auf der Innsbrucker Nordkette lasst in Sachen Aussicht keine Wunsche offen. Bereits an der Bergstation der Hungerburgbahn erscheint den Besuchern die Landeshauptstadt Innsbruck aus einem vollig neuen Blickwinkel: 300 Meter uber der Stadt geniesst man den traumhaften Ausblick auf die Hauptstadt der Alpen. Mit der Seegrubenbahn erreicht man kurz darauf die 1905 Meter hoch gelegene Seegrube. Von dort offnet sich der Blick auf das gesamte mittlere Inntal, die Stubaier und Zillertaler Alpen und uber das Wipptal bis zur nahe gelegenen italienischen Landesgrenze. Fur den Aussichtshohepunkt geht es mit der Hafelekarbahn weiter auf das 2256 Meter hohe Hafelekar: Dort steht die dicht besiedelte Inntalfurche auf der einen Seite im Kontrast zur unbesiedelten Wildnis des Alpenparks Karwendel auf der anderen Seite. Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Stadt und Berg werden die Eindrucke hoch uber Innsbruck zum einzigartigen Erlebnis less

Anyone aged 3 to 103 can read this book! The people in charge of each station make sure visitors get to see and experience the fascinating wonders of nature in a fun way. Walking barefoot over rocks and stones, through streams and meadows on the longest barefoot trail is reflexology for your feet and revives the entire body. Watch the bees coming and going in the Bee Theatre, copy the bees’ tail wagging dance or even go into the pitch-black beehive, and you’ll soon be walking on air too! less
