Austria's highest mountain and centrepiece of the High Tauern National...

Austria's highest mountain and centrepiece of the High Tauern National Park You can approach the Grossglockner in many different ways: it is the highest mountain of the Alpine Republic, one of the most striking elevations in the Eastern Alps and the summit of passion for many a mountaineer. The mountain is also home to people, numerous animals and rare plants. The Glockner is cloaked in secrecy, is the stuff of legend and has great attractive power. It is an obstacle on the path from north to south, yet a place where it has been overcome through the millennia. Join us and get to know his majesty, the Grossglockner, in his numerous aspects!

Looks like most people here review the Grossglockner road, not the mountain itself. Hopefully I am not misplacing my review in an attempt to talk about actual mountain. It is a highest mountain in Austria and as such is a magnet for crowds in summer. Nonetheless it is a must to visit when you have a chance. There are many... More

Went by coach, 36 hairpin bends and one of the most spectacular places I've ever visited. If you go to Austria you must visit here.

I drove by bike until the top... It's stunning, wonderful... You have to pay some euros to drive on that road but it's wonderful for its landscapes. You get the top and then if you like you can walk to the top of the glacier. The top is some miles away from the car park but it deserves very much... More

Very nice place with spectacular views and panoramas. Especially if you ride a motorbike this, I'd say, legendary place, is a must see! Even though the entrance to the park is not for free, that's definitely worth it. But do not forget warm clothes! It's chilly here when hot in lower mountains. Snow lays here all year around. Besides the... More

At the end you have restaurants and also the gletcher. you have to pay a fee ( toll) on the way to the Grossglockner. ( € 10 and... More

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

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!!!
