Kaunertal - the darkest place in Austria

The Kaunertal Glacier Road provides safe access to a magical place in the middle of a mountain world formed by the glacier ice at around 2,000 m, the Gepatsch in the Kaunertal.
Here, away from the cities and far away from artificial light, you can experience an unforgettable deep look into a dark night sky, the history of the universe and also of time.

My Kaunertal – Holiday in Tirol

The Kaunertal – a valley of contradictions. It’s difficult to describe: you have to experience it for yourself. A deep valley cut between high mountain peaks, which at first sight block the horizon, yet still afford an expansive vision of wild natural beauty. A mountain world of high peaks and boundless views, which somehow inspires limitless freedom and adventure yet remains cosy and homely.
