150 years first ascent of the Grossglockner by a woman

6 July 2019

For the first time they are also appreciated: the women on the Grossglockner! The occasion for the new permanent exhibition was the 150th anniversary of the first documented ascents of the Grossglockner by women in 1869, specifically by the English alpinist Mary Whitehead and Anna von Frey from Salzburg.

But the exhibition also explores the question of who hides behind these and other female summit strikers and what social prejudices and obstacles they defy during this period. Intensive research even revealed that other women had probably conquered the summit of the Grossglockner much earlier!
