Tauernhöhenweg, Trail in the entire Tauern, 275 km, 3 to 4 weeks

The Tauern-Höhenweg runs east-west through the entire Tauern, from the Schladminger Tauern to the Venedigergruppe: Schladminger und Radstädter Tauern - Ankogel - Sonnblick - Großglockner - Großvenediger. The trail neatly follows the main crest. As you will guess, this is not an easy path. Compared to most other trails in our list, the Tauern-Höhenweg is a serious mountaineering trip. In this high Alpine landscape you will need a rope, crampons and a ice ax, plus the knowledge how to use them. If this all is no problem for you, you will be facing a very sportive hike, likely the trip of a lifetime.

The Zentralalpenweg or Weitwanderweg 02 is using this Tauernhöhenweg.
