the village of KAPRUN

jewel of the SALZBURGER LAND region

Home to 3,130 residents, Kaprun is a village in the Salzburger Land region  bringing together everything that makes this area so special. Its location at the foot of the Hohe Tauern Mountains featuring some of the highest peaks in Austria makes Kaprun the perfect base to explore this spectacular natural paradise.

Away from the village centre, the municipal territory of Kaprun extends into the Hohe Tauern National Park. It includes the Großes Wiesbachhorn, at 3,570 metres the seventh-highest mountain in Austria and the third-highest in the Glockner Massif. From south to north flows the Kapruner Ache, a river which eventually merges with the Salzach – the main river through Salzburg.

Many years ago, drilling work near Kaprun Castle led to the discovery of an underground spring – and the Tauern Spa was born! Combining relaxation and accommodation, it is today one of the most modern spa hotels in the country. Popular activities in the region include a ride on the funicular to the Kitzsteinhorn mountain, a visit to the Mooserboden reservoirs high in the Hohe Tauern mountains, a day out at the 32-metre-deep Sigmund Thun Klamm gorge and a stop at the local history museum.
