In terms of total area, the Raurisertal is one of the largest expanses of valley in the Hohe Tauern range. Together with the National Park Region which surrounds the Rauris Valley, we encounter special features and natural treasures that are so rich in variety, we are often said to be a separate world within the Hohe Tauern National Park. The Krumltal is one of the side valleys of the Rauristal and can be reached by a steep path in the beginning. A beautiful scenery with a lot of wildlife. Between water falls, rocks and alpine pastures. The Krumltalbach - Kruml brook brings you directly to the Birds of Prey of the alps. The Krumltal accommodates the most important traditional sleeping places and the best observation possibilities for griffon vultures which come annually during the Hohe Tauern. At the same time it is the only area in the national park where all three kings can be observed regularly. It is one of the most closest settled valley by the golden eagle. In summer times there are between 60- 80 griffon vultures, which spend their summer vacation in the valley of vultures. The kings of the air in the wild nature are very far, but in the valley of Rauris, however, very close. In 1986, the Rauris valley was selected as the site in which to reintroduce the bearded vulture to the Alps this year will see the final release of bearded vultures into the wild, along with smaller animals which have lived in the Hohe Tauern for centuries. Look out for imposing Bearded Vultures or once the snow melts, free-roaming marmots. The Raurisertal is also one of the few Tauern valleys to be a site of continuous settlement.

Feel nature's power here in the Krumltal valley of the National park Hohe Tauern - Austria. Here at the
top of the Goldberggruppe you can find the Krumtalbach spring.The crystal clear melted snow water from the 3000 meter high peaks like Hohe Sonnblick, Schareck, Herzog Ernst flows eventually down into the Salzbach river. It is a right tributary of the Inn and is 225 kilometres in length. The Inn is a right tributary of the Danube and is approximately 500km long. The source is located in the Alps.

Het Nationalpark Hohe Tauern biedt vandaag nog veel diersoorten een thuis. Diersoorten die bijna zijn uitgestorven. Zo moest men jaren gelden ook in het Raurisertal besluiten voor massa toerisme of zachte toerisme ter bescherming van de natuur. Daarom voelt men zich vandaag in het Raurisertal als in het paradijs op aarde. Heerlijke alm weitjes, de indrukwekkende Baardgieren, rondlopende Marmotten in het hart van het Nationalpark zijn een teken dat de natuur nog in takt is. En idylle dat tot dromen uitnodigt. Het doet goed wanneer we in het dagelijks leven en werk eens tijd maken voor de natuur, mystiek en familie. Niets anders dan onthaasten, gezondheid, bewegen in de bergen en ontspanning in de prachtige natuur zijn de elementen die nodig zijn voor een balans tussen lijf, geest en ziel. De geest en gedachten tot rust laten komen en regenereren bij de buitengewone “Kraftplatzen” van het Raurisertal. De Krumltal is één van de zijdalen van het Raurisertal. Te bereiken via een tamelijk steil begin over een brede verder makkelijke weg, naar een romantisch dal, met veel wild zoals marmotten, gemsen en baardgieren. De baardgier is een bijna uitgestorven giersoort die men weer opnieuw in het wild is uitgezet. Aan het einde van het dal bevindt zich een mooie waterval. Hierboven ontspringt de Krumltalbeek die uiteindelijk in de Salzach eindigt. De Salzach is met een lengte van 225 kilometer de langste zijrivier van de Inn. De Inn is weer een rechter zijrivier van de Donau en één van de voornaamste waterafvoerwegen van de Alpen.
