Discover Fauna

The chamois, marmots and ibexes share the mountain slopes, while the spoonbills, storks, purple herons and long-eared bats prefer the reed beds of the Pannonia. The national park of the Hohe Tauern also shelters ibexes, chamois, marmots and golden eagles. Another species to observe: the griffon vultures that glide around the sky in summer. Another species of carrion-eater, the bearded vultures used to meet in the Hohe Tauern; at present, attempts are being made to reintroduce them.
