The Winter's Tale: Guarded by the mighty peak of the Großglockner (3,798 m), Austria's highest mountain, the snow-covered houses of Heiligenblut cuddle around the slender tower of the famous gothic pilgrimage church. In the legendary mountain village Heiligenblut winter dreams come true - whether wild, mystic or cozy!
In springtime, when nature awakens in the Hohe Tauern National Park in the region of Carinthia, summer meets winter in a fascinating embrace. As the névé snow sparkles atop the 3.000m summit the deep green colour of the valleys tempts the eye. From skiing fun on and off-piste to hiking and cycling, this is what makes spring special in Hohe Tauern.
When in the legendary mountain village Heiligenblut, at the feet of the blue-coloured glacial peaks, the mountain forests begin to change colour and sparkle gold, the most beautiful time of the year for hiking begins around Austria's highest mountain, the Großglockner.

Heiligenblut: The legendary mountain village
Pretty like a postcard: The proud-standing late gothic church stands at the heart of the mountain, snuggled between hostels and mountain farms. A silhouette framed by the majestic glacier-covered Großglockner. Heiligenblut is so much more than just a photographer’s muse.
