HIGH ALPINE ROAD MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE

Grossglockner High Alpine Road adventure

Driving fun, hiking entertainment and experiences in nature around the Grossglockner

The high mountains and the Grossglockner: What was once reserved for experienced mountaineers only, has been an experience for young and old since the construction of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, which enjoys unbroken enthusiasm and fascination. Much has changed since the opening of the Alpine Road in 1935. The road became wider, safer and more comfortable. Exhibitions and museums, huts and mountain inns, visitor centres and information points focus on the diverse mountain world with its fauna and flora in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The mountain road blends harmoniously into the landscape, offers a unique mountain experience - and for more than 80 years has provided 48 kilometres of incomparable driving pleasure.
