Heiligenblut am Großglockner

The legendary mountain climber village of Heiligenblut is regarded as probably one of the most beautiful in the entire Alpine region. It is set in a picturesque mountain landscape at almost 1,300 metres above sea level, against a unique natural backdrop in the Hohe Tauern National Park, watched over by the mighty summit of the Grossglockner (3,798 metres), the highest mountain in Austria.

During the snow-free period, the Grossglockner High Alpine Road links Carinthia to Salzburg and is one of the country‚Äôs most popular destinations. The region acts as a magnet for hikers, with an exciting tour starting from Heiligenblut: the long-distance Alpe-Adria-Trail, which leads from the Grossglockner via Carinthia, Slovenia and Friuli Venezia Giulia to the Upper Adriatic.

Guided hikes in the Hohe Tauern National Park are also becoming increasingly popular, with activities such as watching wildlife, glacier trekking or night tours. A popular activity in summer is panning for gold in the gold diggers village. This reconstructed village tells the history of the gold miners who prospected for gold here between the 14th and 18th centuries.
