Hochalmspitze 3360m

With a height of 3360m, the Hochalmspitze is the highest elevation of the Ankogel group in the Hohe Tauern.

As a counterpart to the Glockner, it is also known as the “Tauern Queen”. Towering over four valleys, surrounded on four sides by glaciers, it is particularly beautiful, supported by wide and massive slab walls and pillars.
