Hiking and Summer Holiday
in the Alpine Village of Grossarl

A holiday with family and friends in the “Valley of the Alms” in the Großarl Valley

The Grossarl Valley is part of the Hohe Tauern National Park and a real holiday paradise in summer with lots to see and do. Our valley is not called the “Valley of the Alms” for nothing. Lots of alms (mountain pasture with hut) are run by farmers. Try out the home-made butter, cheese and smoked bacon on home-baked bread. Afterwards enjoy a schapps for your digestive system. Whether down in the valley or up in the mountains, take a deep breath and savour the clear, clean mountain air with all your senses.
