Lace up your boots
We set out in the early morning hours. The forecast tells us to expect a beautiful, hot summer’s day. For the first leg of our journey, the Grossglockner Cableways take us from the valley further up the mountain. The benefits of this are two-fold: we shave a whole lot of walking off our hiking trip, and once we have reached an altitude of 2000 metres, the summer heat won’t be quite as intense. From the Bergstation (mountain cableway station), we start out on the ‘Geotrail Tauernfenster’ path – leading us through an amazing landscape all the way up to the ‘Hochtor’. How wonderful life can be, if you can enjoy it in the mountains!
