WINTER SKI ADVENTURE IN AUSTRIAN ALPS WINTER SKI ADVENTURE IN AUSTRIAN ALPS

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 meters above sea level, against unique natural backdrop in the Hohe Tauern National Park, watched over by the mighty summit of the Grossglockner (3,798 meters), the highest mountain in Austria.

In winter a breathtaking sports arena covers the region, beckoning visitors to come and ski, free-ride, go on ski tours, winter hikes or cross-country skiing, amidst the sparkling natural wonderland.
