Free of charge National Park Ranger tours on the Kitzsteinhorn

Experience the fascination of the high alpine mountain world and the Hohe Tauern National Park during a free of charge guided tour: National Park Rangers take you on a "National Park Gallery Tour" through the Gipfelwelt 3000 and guide you through four climate zones from the valley to the world of the glacier on the "Kitzsteinhorn Explorer Tour".

Kitzsteinhorn Explorer Tour

Explore four climate zones from the valley to the world of glaciers together with a National Park Ranger in just one day with cable cars:

How does glacier ice form, where is the habitat of golden eagles and bearded vultures, what survival strategies do edelweiss and saxifrage develop – you will find out all this and more on a trip with four cable cars to 3.000 metres above sea level and on easy hiking tours. At the end a visit of the Gipfelwelt 3000 including Nationalpark Gallery awaits you.
