Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail | entire trail

At eye level with Austria's highest mountains

The Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail offers a long-distance hiking experience that's in a class of its own. In the course of seventeen daily stages, hikers cover a distance of 275 kilometres from the starting point at the foot of the Krimml Waterfalls over the Schmittenhöhe high above Zell am See to Hüttschlag. En route you will find stunning natural attractions, great exhibitions, picturesque national parks and attractive excursion destinations. The mountain railways and handy shuttle services at the stage destinations as well as optional luggage transfer offer maximum comfort. 

Each day the long-distance hikers walk for three to seven hours - without rope and between 700 and 2,400 metres above sea level, affording panoramic views. Alternative routes are available if the main routes cannot be accessed during low season due to bad weather, such as snow at high altitudes.
