This is the highest mountain in Austria and a must to visit if you are in the Tyrol. I went in early June, just a week after the final snowfall of the spring and the council workers were still clearing the final bits of snow on to side of the road. The views as you travel up (and down) are... More

You can imagine a basin all white of colossal size and utmost beauty. The place is well served with restaurant , bathroom facilities and gift shop. Additionally many skiers show their talent.

The road to get here is full of hair pin bends as you ascend the mountain, but it is an absolutely amazing feat of engineering. The views are absolutely spectacular. The Glacier is amazing and absolutely worth a visit.

Kaprun with its glacier offers; big strong fast slopes for skiers and snowboarders. The slopes are professionally cared for, always. This leaves only belong to remember that in December, on the northern slopes is very cold and -28 degrees cersjusza is no exception. We strongly recommend!!!

Grossglockner is the highest mountain in Austria. The bus ride was interesting, cows graze very high, they are under a mountain marmots. People at risk of leg injuries, and wander along the route in the countryside

Didn't really know what to expect when I went on a coach day trip up the Grossglockner, but this was an awesome experience and one I hope I can make again one day. Hats off to our coach driver who did an excellent job on the high alpine road. Even though it was the end of May, the sides of... More

We went on Grossglockner on a partly cloudy day so we couldn't enjoy the most of the views on the peak itself, but we could take a walk on the glacier. I was shocked when I saw the year by year signs about the level of the glacier. In just 10-20 last years glacier has lost a significant part of... More
