Nationalpark Hohe Tauern

Summer pleasure tour - Herbs

The secret world of herbs

Searching for wild herbs with the national park rangers.



    • Nature is full of special plants and many of them are not only beautiful to look at! Go on a search with the Naionalpark ranger - you will be surprised how much you can eat and what healing effect even the most inconspicuous flower has. You will also learn whether larch pitch really brings bad luck and what bees have to do with most ointments. Finally, a delicious spread is prepared and tasted directly in nature from the collected wild herbs.


      You will be introduced to numerous herbs that grow in the Hohe Tauern National Park. Our herb experts will teach you about their special properties and how to process them.
