This is a unique opportunity for the visitors to experience the heart of a national park region, which would have remained inaccessible to them without the road. TRAVEL BACK IN TIME The travelling highlights include not only the two access roads to the Edelweiss-Spitze and to the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe, but also the seven-kilometres long panorama-section between 2,400 and 2,500 metres above sea level between the Fuscher Törl and Hochtor. The following facts have been discovered during the construction of the road: People were already out and about in the high mountains much earlier. Old trade routes lead across the Tauern mountain range. A journey across the Grossglockner High Alpine Road is therefore always a trip into the past. A place’s description and the name tell stories: A pilgrim lost his life on the Elendboden in a snow storm; the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe and the Elisabethruhe am Glocknerhaus owe their names to the visit of the royal couple in the year 1856. As naturally the majesty of Vienna was curious to visit the majesty of the mountains: The emperor never stood on the top, but he climbed the “Hoher Sattel”, which was immediately renamed to Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe. GROSSGLOCKNER HIGH ALPINE ROAD 13 KAISER-FRANZ-JOSEFS-HÖHE Even today it is the highest point of an excursion across the Grossglockner High Alpine Road: The Pasterze glacier – the longest glacier of the Eastern Alps – is at the visitor’s feet and the Grossglockner appears to blaze everywhere. It is possible to watch every mountaineer with a naked eye from here, who climbs the 3,798 metres peak on the trail of the first climber Prince-Bishop Franz Xaver Graf von Salm-Reifferscheid. The Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe is the starting point for magnificent hikes on the high alpine Gamsgrubenweg with Glockner legends to the Wilhelm Swarovski Observatory or to the Pasterze glacier. Here one finds “Alpenliebe” one of the highest exhibitions for contemporary art, “Automobilausstellung”, the highest held automobile exhibition in the world as well as the National Park Info-centre with the exhibition “Faszination Eis & Gletscher”, the themed trail “Fels und Eis” and the Glockner Cinema.
