The Jagdhausalmen are the oldest Alps in Austria, they are located in the Arvental in Osttirol. In the beautiful natural landscape of the Hohe Tauern National Park, there is a chapel and 15 stone houses at an altitude of 2,009 meters. This settlement was built in the 13th century and inhabited all year round. Now they are monumental buildings. Because survival without grain supply was impossible at this altitude, the area was used only for agriculture about 200 years later. Just behind a moraine, a small round lake is hidden, this lake is called 'das Pfauenauge' (peacock's eye).
