Bruck is located close to the Hohe Tauern National Park, covering a part of the Alps, where several of Austria’s highest mountains are to be found, e.g. the Großglockner (3798 m/12,461 ft) and the Großvenediger (3666 m/12,028 ft). Furthermore, Bruck is the starting point of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, climbing up to a height of 2,504 metres (8215 feet), providing excellent views into the national park. So, it might be a good idea to combine your festival attendance with a stay in this area, e.g. walking through nice scenery, or, unicycling up the Grossglockner High Alpine Road.
