Free guided tour with a National Park ranger to the Kaiserstein   

From mid-July until the end of September, every day at 10:30 and 13:30, free guided hikes with a National Park ranger start from the visitor centre up to Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe via the panorama path up to the Kaiserstein. On the way, the ranger explains how the glacier has changed, what flowers are in bloom at the wayside and about the animals that live up here. With a bit of luck on this one-hour route you might even come across a few marmots, or spy one of the mighty ibex who live in a colony above the Wilhelm-Swarovski Observatory.
