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!

The Glssglockner Alpine Road is absolutely magnificent but only for confident drivers who know how to handle sharp inclines and declines. At the entrance the road, you need pay a toll fee of 32 Euros or 29 Euros if you have a Salzburgerland car. You...More

The Grossglockner is the best driving/riding experience of your life, if there's a downside, and it's not really a downside, you want to stop every 100m as the view just gets more and more spectacular. It's €32 for bikes and €22 for cars

A truly amazing sight greets you the end of the Grossglocknerstasse run: Austria's highest peak towering above it's finest glacier. Whether you wish to view it from the plentiful decking or walk/take the train to the glacier shelf, this is a fabulous location.
