The Edelweisshütte on the Grossglockner

Rest and spend the night at the highest point of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road

Staying at the Edelweisshütte is always a very special experience. Enjoy the sensational view of more than thirty 3,000 m peaks, the Glocknermassiv and the delicacies of the Pinzgau cuisine on the sun terrace at an altitude of 2,571 m during the day. Once the crimson sun has set behind the alpine sea, an endless starry sky stretches across the mountains. As opposed to the cities, light pollutions doesn’t cloud the view of celestial bodies here: the Milky Way seems to be within grasp, while a silvery light shines down onto the mighty mountain summits on full-moon nights. Float between heaven and earth until the rays of the morning sun cast light and warmth across mountain tops, hills and meadows.

Mountain inn in third generation: the Edelweisshütte

The once fairly small mountain inn was built soon after the completion and opening of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road in 1935. The increasing popularity of the rustic hut on the Grossglockner led to its extension and modernisation. Today, the Edelweisshütte features modern comfort rooms with private bath and WC. The long time that it took to install drinking water and sewage pipes and an electricity supply from the valley proves that this is anything but to be taken for granted on the mountain. The Lederer family now manages the popular daytrip and accommodation destination in third generation while taking care to preserve the characteristic charm of the Edelweisshütte.

Eat, drink and spend the night on the Edelweissspitze

Reach the Edelweissspitze, the highest point of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, via an access road that branches off the main road (please note that this road is not suitable for buses!). You can now visit the restaurant of the Edelweisshütte or occupy your room or other accommodation options:

•    Single, double and three-bed room with cold/hot water, one shower and WC per floor on the corridor
•    Comfort rooms with private baths and WC
•    Log cabin for two persons
•    Chalet Edelweiss for two to three persons

Service point for bikers on the Edelweisshütte

A trip to the Edelweissspitze is a must for enthusiastic mountain bikers! Two-wheel aficionados will find lockable safes, garages and a drying room plus skilled help for minor repairs. Enjoy the hospitality of the innkeepers, the atmosphere of a rustic alpine inn and a quiet, restful night in fresh mountain air while your motorbike is stored safe, sound and dry! Tip: there’s a second bikers’ point on the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe.
