Hohe Tauern National Park

Bordering the Austrian provinces Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol the National Park Hohe Tauern is the largest national park in Central Europe. With peaks like the Großglockner, the highest mountain of Austria, wide glaciers as well as the impressive Krimmler Water Falls the National Park Hohe Tauern is a complex wonder of nature. Between 1,300-1,700 m Picea forests, with some Pinus and Abies, dominates. Above 1,700 m, Pinus cembra and Larix occur, but the forests are greatly altered and reduced in size by human use and the creation of pastures. The treeline has been lowered by human activity and extensive areas of treeline dwarf-shrub communities exist. Above the treeline are artificial pastures, alpine grasslands and extensive glaciers.
Birds;- Resident Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix), Rock Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta), Rock Partridge (Alectoris graeca), Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), Three-toed Woodpecker (Picoides tridactylus)
