The Grossglockner is without a doubt one of Austria’s most impressive natural sights. It’s not only Austria’s tallest mountain, but also one of the highest peaks of the Alps. Once you have laid eyes on this giant, you will both desperately want to climb it and feel somewhat intimidated. Luckily, there is an easy way out of this dilemma, and it is called the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. This winding road will take you right up to the Kaiser-Franz Josephs Höhe, a camp on 8,200 feet, from where you can take a 30 minute walk to the glacier, or embark on a guided tour with one of the park rangers. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by - it really is one of a kind.
