A natural spectacle, created by the sculptural power of glaciers
The retreat of the glaciers reveals a unique natural landscape in the rear Kaunertal valley, which becomes a constantly changing natural spectacle for the conscious visitor. A ride on the Kaunertal Glacier Road opens up all vegetation levels of the Alps. Over a length of 26 kilometres it overcomes a total of 29 hairpin bends and a difference in altitude of almost 1,500 metres. What can be experienced here at a very short distance can otherwise only be experienced on a journey from northern Germany to Greenland.
Admission to the nature
The Kaunertal Glacier Road is your entrance to the nature of the Kaunergrat Nature Park and the Kaunertal Glacier. Austria’s most beautiful cul-de-sac opens up unique perspectives, dramatic lighting moods and perfect compositions of nature to the visitor. It is an experience of attraction, enthusiasm and awe that the mountain world has always awakened in people.
