A world of adventure for familiesA snowball fight in June, a free movie with a Murmi show, a hands-on iceberg and great themed playgrounds with slides, swings and plenty of room to romp around:
the Grossglockner High Alpine Road is a fantastic world of adventure for families.
Come closer and closer to the highest mountain in Austria on the picturesque panoramic road while you introduce your children to the big and smaller wonders of nature: waterfalls, marmots, blooming meadows and the Grossglockner with the Pasterze Glacier as the absolute highlight.
"Guaranteed marmots," countless Matchbox cars and free admission everywhere
Young animal lovers will have the opportunity to see real animals such as marmots or ibex in their natural habitats. Young car fans will not believe their eyes at the Visitor Center: vintage cars from years gone by are on display at the highest automobile exhibition in the world, including hundreds of toy cars and Matchbox cars. The interesting "Fascination of Ice & Glaciers" exhibition is featured at the Glockner cinema. The program is rounded off by easy nature trails, nice playgrounds and exciting exhibitions such as the over-sized flowers in the Glockner meadow or the nature and Murmi show at the Alpine Nature Show Museum.
Great children's birthday surprise – all year round
Experience an unforgettable excursion together with your birthday child. We'll give your child (up to the age of 12) a free pair of frankfurters, a soft drink and a small gift upon presentation of the child's ID 10 days before and after his or her birthday (can be picked up at one of the Glockner shops along the road).
On the Grossglockner High Alpine Road with Murmi
Our mascot MURMI – of course a real Glockner marmot (tame and always ready for another venture) – invites the whole family to come play, experience and understand nature during the ride on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road.
Four themed playgrounds were lovingly created by the Carinthian designer Michaela Fink – "The Gold Miners' Site," "Building the Road," "Snow Fun at the High Gate" and "From an Egg to a Butterfly."
Parents can enjoy the beautiful panoramic view and take a coffee break while the children try their skills at panning gold or building the road, sit in the old site car, observe the marmots in their habitat or float through the air like a butterfly.
