Grossglockner 3798m

“At 3798m, the Großglockner is the highest mountain in Austria.”

“The striking tip made of rocks from the green slate facies belongs to the Glockner Group, a mountain range in the central part of the Hohe Tauern, and is considered to be one of the most important peaks in the Eastern Alps. Since the first explorations at the end of the 18th century and the first ascent by four participants in a large expedition led by Prince-Bishop Salm-Reifferscheidt-Krautheim in 1800, the Großglockner has played an important role in the development of alpinism. To this day it is of great importance for tourism in the region and a popular destination for mountaineers with more than 5000 summit climbs per year. The view of the mountain, one of Austria’s most famous landmarks, is the main scenic attraction of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. “
