Along 100 kilometres (62 mi) of the main chain stretches the High Tauern National Park, to which the Austrian Alpine Club as freeholder and the three states of Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol have contributed territory.

The crest forms the southern border of the Austrian states of SalzburgCarinthia and East Tyrol, with a small part in the southwest belongs to the Italian province of South Tyrol.

It is by far the largest of Austria’s seven national parks as well as the largest nature reserve in the Alps. The best-known mountain pass road of the High Tauern is the scenic Grossglockner High Alpine Road inaugurated in 1935.

Never forget that you are high on the mountains, and are subject to rapidly changing weather that can go quickly from being good to very bad. Make sure that you have adequate clothing, including rainy weather gear, and good shoes. Mountain rescuers have found that overconfidence is the most common cause of accidents. Sunscreen and plenty of water are important to have on hand.
