Beautiful 2 days hike to the top. Day 1: Lucknerhause to Studlhutte (2800m). Day 2: going to the top (3798m) via Erzherzog Johann Hütte. Took around 4hours, in beautiful weather, round trip 8 hours from Studlhutte. Of course with the guide.

Have been to Grossglockner several times, sad to see the ice flow disappearing but stunning scenery all the way no matter which way you approach from.

Climbing highest peak of Austria (3798m) is amasing experience. You are rewarded by breathtaking view to Pasterze glacier with many wateralls beneath Grossglockner, great scenery of Hohe Tauern national park, and surrounding mountains. Depending on time of the year, it can be very demanding climb,...More

The Grossglockner High Alpine Road is a fantastic experience with breathtaking mountain views. We were lucky that is was a nice sunny day and not too many clouds, so that the mountains and the Grossglockner were in full view. So do check the weather forecast....More

Amazing, worth-a-while climb with spectacular views (if you get lucky with weather). Definitely must do if you are in good shape and like climbing and glacier walking.

We stayed at a small town called Heiliglenblut which is the closest town to the mountain. Gorgeous town in the valley below with stunning scenery abounding.
