Bramberg am Wildkogel is located in the "Nationalpark Hohe Tauern". The Hohe Tauern is a mountain range stretching through the states of Salzburg, Carinthia and Tyrol and extending into the Italian province of South Tyrol.
The Hohe Tauern contain several peaks extending 3000m including the country’s tallest Grossglockner (3789m) and Grossvenediger (3666m). Directly in front of the Chalet you see the mountains 11 and 12 (during the summer the sun is located straight above these mountains at this time).
Furthermore you can find various rivers in the surroundings of Bramberg, such as the Salzach, Habach, Sulzbach and the Isel. The Isel is the only river in this area that is entirely fed by glaciers and flows uninterrupted by any hydro-plants or lakes. The Isel finds its source at the Grossvenediger and joins the Drau in Lienz.
The Krimml Waterfall is in reach of 30 minutes by car. With a total height of 380m, this waterfall is the highest waterfall in Europe. Adjacent to the waterfall is a trail. Going up the trail you will find less hikers.
An excellent way to enjoy the surroundings is by making a mountain bike tour. A Segway tour can also be recommended bringing you comfortably to lovely paths and places in the Hohe Tauern.
