GROSSGLOCKNER HIGH ALPINE ROAD +43 (662) 873673-0 EN Unique experience in nature high in the Alps The Grossglockner High Alpine Road (Großglockner Hochalpenstraße) is one of the world’s most fascinating scenic roads and has been protected as a heritage site since 2015. Extending for 48 kilometres, it runs through the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park up to 2,571 metres above sea level, passing the foot of Austria’s highest mountain before finishing at the longest glacier in the Eastern Alps, the Pasterze. Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe, at 2,369 metres elevation, reveals a one-of-a-kind lookout over the 3,798 m-high Grossglockner’s mountainsides and snowy slopes, along with the other three-thousanders that surround it. Go for a short walk and you might catch sight of marmots, or even ibexes, chamoises and eagles. A variety of informative themed trails and interesting exhibits offer an unforgettable experience in nature.
