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

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 High Alpine Road is a toll road that is only open during particular times in the year (I would imagine inaccessible for the rest) and is an engineering marvel. We were not so fortunate with the weather as the cloud base was quite low but did move along with a brisk wind and so if we sat for 10... More

The High Alpine Road to Grossglockner is an amazing feat of civil engineering in itself but when you round the last bend and view Grossglockner and the Pasterze Glacier, well you are breathless. Great facilities at the top including a massive restaurant and multi-storey car park - no I am serious! Great shops as well. Much loved by Bikers this... More

Really enjoyable day out. We were so lucky with the weather. It was crystal clear skies and we had such amazing views all along the alpine road and the highest peak. We walked to the bottom of the glacier which is quite a hard walk and saw lots of marmots! We stopped off at one of the restaurant for a... More

It is indeed one of the finest roads I've ever crossed. At the entrance to the road which is a toll road (35 euro for a car and 25 euro for a motorcycle) there is a lovely center with a wildpark, children playground, restaurant and tourist shops. The road itself is 48 km long and has a lot of atractions... More

I have to review the cafe we visited on this site as im unable to find the cafe itself in tripadvisor my apologies. We arrived at this Café after a wonderful drive up, the Café was run by a couple that I can only describe as very strange, I asked the lady if she spoke English she just shrugged !... More

When we first arrived at the toll, we were told to wait for 30 minutes as the road was closed to motorbikes. Once allowed through we made our way to the top, riding through clouds along the way. The roads were wet, but no snow - plenty at the sides though - 7ft in places. Visibility was very poor in... More

Really is a must to see, we were amazed at the views. Going up an alpine road over 8,000 foot is spectacular, the weather was perfect & all the views just awesome We stopped at a hut where the owner had rescued a Marmot, it was lovely, he was feeding it peanuts as it sat on his head..
