Make your holiday truly enchanting. The ‘Magical Moments’ hiking programme takes you on the region’s most beautiful routes – guided by our National Park Rangers, who are experts at promoting tangible experiences within the natural world.

Alpe Adria Trail: from the Glacier to the Sea

Starting out directly at the foot of Austria’s highest mountain, this award-winning long-distance trail leads all the way to the azure-blue coast of the Adriatic Sea. Hikers are able to experience some or all sections of the trail – journeying through breathtaking natural landscapes, meeting interesting new people, and making memories that are sure to last a lifetime.

The Grossglockner - Austria’s highest mountain at 3798 m

Starting out from Heiligenblut, you can scale the Grossglockner – and quite literally stand at the top of Austria. A fantastic challenge that is by no means limited to expert-level climbers. With the support of a Heiligenblut mountain guide, any reasonably experienced mountaineer can make the unforgettable ascent to the gold-embellished summit cross.

Heiligenblut Pilgrimage Church

It is one of Austria’s most widely-recognised scenes: the late-gothic architecture of Heiligenblut’s Saint Vincent parish church, set against the striking pyramid shape of the Grossglockner. The ancient pilgrimage church is well worth a visit, and continues to draw thousands of visitors each year.

Heiligenblut Adventure Park

The Heiligenblut Adventure Park offers a high rope course, climbing wall, playground and cafe. The range of activities has now been further expanded, with a recently opened fixed-rope-route in the adjacent Möllschlucht gorge.

Grossglockner Cableways

Let us take you higher! With our cableways, you are able to travel almost to the top of the Schareck mountain in complete comfort – all while enjoying breathtaking views and soaking up the primeval energy of the Hohe Tauern. In winter, we take you into the heart of the multi-faceted Grossglockner/Heiligenblut skiing terrain. In the summer months, we can give you a head-start on the most amazing hiking routes – such as Geotrail Tauernfenster panoramic trail, which starts at the Schareck cableway station.
