Pension Kristall – Habachtal

Hollersbachtal valley

As slate stone is suited well for pasture, Hollersbachtal valley contains the largest amount of mountain pastures within the Nationalpark: 3510 ha. 1950 still 368 cows have been brought down. At the mouth of the valley both a forest Hollerstraeucher (elderberries) and a "Bach" (creek) gave Hollersbach valley its name.

Passing "Leitneralm", "Wirtsalm", "Lahneralm" and "Achleitenalm" (farms) you will reach the former "Senningeralm" and "Ottacheralm". Around the "Weidsfeldkees" chamois move over snow fields. Here – in crevices of the rock – the famous edelweiss can be found.
    On both sides of the inner "Ofneralm" two water falls can be seen. One from "Seebach" over "Kratzenberg" and the "Weissenecker Bach".
    Near by Kratzenbergsee lake the "Fuerther Huette" (alpine farm) is located. From there you can reach Larmkogel (3022 m altitute).
    Hollersbachtal valley is famous for its wild life: deer, hinds, roebucks, goats and chamois. Unfortunately ibex have become extincted.

Felbertal valley

Pension Kristall – Habachtal

Felbertal valley was an ancient traffic route. At the times of the Roman Empire it was the most frequented way through the Hohe Tauern mountains. Free of glaciers it connects eastern and southern Tyrol.
    The advent of the way is marked with the Felberturm tower in Felben (Mittersill). From there you walk up to 2481m. In past times horse caravans of about 30 horses and loads up to 150 kilo moved over the Tauern mountain. They transported salt, loden from Nuernberg, sweet wine from Friaul, honey from Krain, herbs, cloth and cattle.
    You will see Hintersee lake at an altitude of 1300m. The lake has a length of 500m and is 10m deep. 1565 it was said "darinnen die großen Ferchen sein" which means it is the lake with the huge trouts.
    At 2200m altitude you see the almost round Plattsee lake. From St. Poeltner Huette (alpine farm) you reach Tauernkogel mountain at 2289m altitude. From there you have an excellent panorama view.
