Nockberge national park in Austria

The Nockberge National Park is one of the seven Austria’s national parks. The park was established in 1987 and it is European only high mountain national park. On the area of approx. 20ha the park offers great gentle, rounded mountain tops, alpine pastures and woodland. The particular beauty of this natural preserve makes hiking in the Nockberge mountains a wonderful adventure.

The distinctive shape of the gently rolling Nockberge Mountains is rare in the history of geology and unique in the Alps. The mountains developed hundred million years ago thanks to an interchange of lands, seas, desserts and jungles.

The name “Nocke” comes from the round shape of the softly rolling mountains and hills between 2,200m and 2,300m above sea level.
