YOUR CHALET IN THE HOHE TAUERN ON THE ROSSBERG
a special place on earth
South-west of the Wildkogel Mountain, in the Upper Salzachtal Valley, on the south-facing shore of the Salzach River, you will
find the Rosental Valley. At the foot of the Rossberg Mountain is Venedigersiedlung, an Alpine region which has a long standing
farming tradition and for many years relied heavily on horses as a working animal. During the summer, the horses – referred to by the locals as 'Ross' – were moved further up the mountain pastures, where they grazed on the slopes, thus leading to the horseshoe becoming the symbol for the Rossberg Mountain. Because of this history, the horseshoe is also part of the coat of arms of the National Park Chalets in the Hohe Tauern, while the mountain range on the coat of arms – which was one an important trade route to Italy – and features the Großvenediger Mountain as its main summit represents the Venediger Group of the National Park Hohe Tauern.
YOUR CHALET VILLAGE IS SITUATED IN A PLACE STEEPED IN HISTORY
The Castle ruins, Heiburg, in the West, were once the residence of a Count and the setting of many traditional tournaments in which knights would compete – this is the perfect holiday destination where you can dive into the region’s past, revealing a world full of legends and stories which are just waiting to be discovered.
