A PLEASURE RIDE INTO THE HIGH MOUNTAINS The Grossglockner High Alpine Road has been one of the most monumental symbols of Austria for more than 80 years.

Every year nearly one million visitors from around the world “conquer” the legendary “Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe” at 2,369 meters above sea level on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. Rising high above the Pasterze glacier, the largest remaining glacier in the eastern Alps, the highest peak in Austria seems almost within reach. On the way beautiful natural spectacles, panoramic views, pastures and inns, nature trails and exhibitions invite you to make numerous stops. A comprehensive visitor offer provides travellers of all ages and activity levels many possibilities for activities: from guided hikes to cheese tasting or a free exhibition. In addition to hiking and exhibitions, there are inns and mountain farms along the Grossglockner High Alpine Road which invite you to take culinary breaks. For families with children there are four theme playgrounds to visit: “Gold Prospector” (Piffkar), “Construction of the Road” (Fuscher Lake), “Snow Fun at Hochtor” and “From Egg to Butterfly” (Gasthaus Schöneck) which provide an opportunity to playfully explore the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. WALKS AND HIKES Explore the flora and fauna of the Hohe Tauern National Park on exciting nature trails and family-friendly walking trails at Piffkar, Gasthaus Schöneck and at the south portal of the Hochtor. The trail around Fuscher Lake takes about ten minutes to complete. Bend 3 on the Glacier road is the starting point for a short hike to the Nassfeld waterfall. At the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe, three hikes are possible: The Gamsgrube Trail (an excellent theme trail) runs high above the glacier landscape through several tunnels where myths and legends are replicated (walking time of about 1 hour - Attention: daily at 11:00 am it is possible to take a free guided hiking tour of the alpine trail with national park rangers). Ten minutes on the Kaiserstein Panorama Trail takes you to the Wilhelm Swarovski Observatory. Here visitors have the opportunity to observe the glaciers, as well as mountaineers, marmots and ibex, using the latest optical equipment. And an alpine trail for proficient hikers to the Pasterze Glacier Trail by Glacier cable car or a hike of about 1.5 hours. KAISER-FRANZ-JOSEFS-HÖHE The highlight of the excursion is the Kaiser-Franz- Josefs-Höhe, which is worth a visit whatever the weather. The huge forecourt, which is also a viewing platform, affords spectacular views of the Pasterze glacier and the Grossglockner.
