The Hohe Tauern National Park is the largest national park in the Alps and the largest protected area in Central Europe. With an area of over 1,800 square kilometres, it covers the Austrian provinces of Salzburg, Tyrol and Carinthia.



The Hohe Tauern National Park is characterised by glacially formed valleys with imposing valley heads, mighty alluvial fans and mudflow cones, alpine grass and shrub heaths, and extensive forests of larch, spruce and Swiss stone pine. The Salzach Valley between Krimml and Mittersill is characterised by snow-capped three-thousand metre peaks, mighty glaciers, torrential streams and roaring gorges.



The gentle hills of the Pinzgau grass mountains form the counterpoint to the Hohe Tauern. This new "Land of Mountains" production presents the uniqueness of the alpine region of the Hohe Tauern National Park with impressive images.



Stories from the history of the region, legends and myths about this area of Salzburg's Pinzgau accompany the audience on a filmic hike through this alpine region of Austria. Herbert Geschwendtner, hiking expert and TV presenter, guides the audience through the programme with stories about the country and its people.
