In the summer of 2006, the national park management units of Salzburg, Carinthia and Tyrol set up the first joint transregional National Park and Tourism Information Centre on the Grossglockner. The cinema in the information centre presents the visitors with impressive images from the Hohe Tauern National Park to persuade them to stay in the national park region for a few days.
The 15-minute film is projected continuously in High Definition and Dolby Surround 5.1 on an 8×4 metre surface. Because of the short distance between visitor and screen, the images appear “larger than life” and are extraordinarily effective. The outstanding production of the unique and emotional visual worlds translates the breathtaking highlights of the entire Hohe Tauern region into a visual treat.
Soaring high above the mountains, the mighty golden eagle looks out for fellow mountain creatures such as ibexes or marmots. Aerial shots of a group of mountaineers on the Grossglockner summit are combined with detail shots of the Krimmler waterfalls – adults are encouraged to acquire a taste for ice climbing and mountain biking, hiking across the endless Alpine meadows, joining a rafting tour or visiting the Stockmühlen. Attractions for the youngest visitors include baking bread and gold panning.
The images, accentuated by the emotional music score, tell everything there is to tell – the spoken word has been omitted on purpose. The visitor is made aware of the possibility of experiencing the presented content in real life within the limits of controlled national park tourism and embarks on a tour of the fascinating world of the Hohe Tauern National Park.
