To the highest peak in Austria, the Großglockner at 3,798 m. . The Großglockner rises steeply and sharply into the bright blue sky. During the climb, the view of the surrounding mountains of the Glockner Group is more than impressive, as well as the sight of the Pasterze, the magnificent glacier. Hard to believe that the Grossglockner was first climbed in 1800. Since then, the tour to the highest peak of Austria has become very popular. From the summit cross the view is majestic and the effort of the ascent is gone. A fantastic summit tour on the highest mountain in Austria.
