Hohe Tauern Hiking Days

"Out and about, enjoying music with Harry Prünster" is the theme for the start of the Hiking Days. On Friday 31 August 2018, we are hiking and making music together with Harry Prünster as we go around the high-country moor Hochmoor Wasenmoos at the Pass Thurn, savouring the absolutely beautiful moor landscape with plant and animal life all of its own.

Attention turns to sport the next day, Saturday, 1 September 2018. 10 km, 20 km and 42 km hiking routes are just waiting for the participants to explore them, highlighting the regions diversity on the selected and well-signposted round-trip tours. 

On Sunday, 2 September 2018, the annual Mittersill Strudel Festival provides a special culinary highlight to round off the Hiking Days. Make sure you dont miss out on the Hohe Tauern Hiking Days!
