Austria's highest mountain and centrepiece of the High Tauern National Park You can approach the Grossglockner in many different ways: it is the highest mountain of the Alpine Republic, one of the most striking elevations in the Eastern Alps and the summit of passion for many a mountaineer. The mountain is also home to people, numerous animals and rare plants. The Glockner is cloaked in secrecy, is the stuff of legend and has great attractive power. It is an obstacle on the path from north to south, yet a place where it has been overcome through the millennia. Join us and get to know his majesty, the Grossglockner, in his numerous aspects!

My daughter & I climbed The Grossglockner with the help of a guide. It was a spectacular experience. Highly recommended for climbers with a good head for heights & steady on their feet!

The High Alpine Road to Grossglockner is an amazing feat of civil engineering in itself but when you round the last bend and view Grossglockner and the Pasterze Glacier, well you are breathless. Great facilities at the top including a massive restaurant and multi-storey car...More
