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 Kruml brook brings you directly to the Birds of Prey of the alps. Today’s recreation seekers can walk over 295 km of marked hiking paths. It gives you the perfect opportunity to get to know the beautiful Rauris Valley. Offering beautiful scenery and outstanding hiking are the romantic Seidlwinkel Valley, with the 500-year-old Rauriser Tauernhaus, the Krumltal and Bräualm where you'll also walk alongside the roosts of the recently reintroduced Bearded Vultures. Numerous organic farmers offer products from their own farm. With an abundance of love and true to ages-old recipes, an array of Pinzgau delicacies come to your table. Up at the mountain huts, hikers are treated to home-made delicacies created by the farmer’s wife herself.

A view on the lush green Alpine meadow next to the Lechnerhäusl Gasthaus. In the background the snowy peaks of the High Sonnblick or Rauriser Sonnblick - Austria. It's a famous three peaks of the Austrian Alps. From here you can hike into the romantic Kruml Valley. In 1986 this lovely high valley was selected for the reintroduction of the bearded vulture in the Alps. This hike in takes approx. four hours.

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. Meer dan 295 km gemarkeerde wandelwegen, geven u de gelegenheid het mooie Raurisertal te leren kennen.
