The Winter‘s Tale: Guarded by the mighty peak of the Großglockner (3797 m), Austria‘s highest mountain, the snow-covered houses of Heiligenblut cuddle around the slender tower of the famous gothic pilgrimage church. In springtime, when nature awakens in the Hohe Tauern National Park in the region of Carinthia, summer meets winter in a fascinating embrace.
