Mythical Grossglockner - 3.798 m
It is the subject of dreams, the focus of stories, and a sought-after destination for mountaineers from around the world: the Grossglockner – Austria’s highest mountain, whose summit towers at 3798 metres above sea level. If this is your dream, then maybe it’s time to make it a reality. The summit tour, starting from Heiligenblut, is long, steep and exposed, but by no means impossible. Over the course of two days, you too can surmount the 1800-metre difference in altitude that lies between the village and the golden summit cross. For experienced alpinists, this tour is an unforgettable treat. Those with a more limited mountaineering background are strongly advised to hire a mountain guide for a safe and successful Grossglockner summit adventure.
