Universum Hermann Maier – Meine Heimat – Die Hohen Tauern

Production Overview

After completing his "Race to the South Pole" and visiting Antarctica two years ago, the former Austrian ski champion Hermann Maier now embarks on a very special "Universum" expedition to discover more about his region's immediate surroundings, to mark Austria's national public holiday 2013. "The region around the Großglockner mountain is a very special piece of the planet," says the former world champion. "It is amazing how humans and animals live in harmony here."

In the shadow of the Großglackner and Großvenediger mountains lies the Hohe Tauern National Park, Austria's largest nature reserve. Its origins stretch back one hundred years.

In association with the Hohe Tauern National Park.
