About Hohentauern - presentation, information, photos and recommendations

General information
At an altitude of 1274 m and with 580 inhabitants, Hohentauern is situated in a nature reserve, amidst more than 20 mountains, each at least 2000 m high. Hohentauern has a 2000 year history as a mountain pass crossing. The Romans built the first reinforced pass-road over the 'Thauern'. Today, the road still provides easy access to Hohentauern, and the fascination of the visitors who use it is always noticeable. Elsewhere, large amounts of traffic have eroded the Alps. Despite the modernity and variety of facilities and opportunites for tourists, Hohentauern has retained the flair of a mountain village protected from mass tourism. A place that has changed little since its origins, where you can take in the power of the heavens and the earth.
