At 48 kilometres in length, the Grossglockner High Alpine Road is a masterpiece of road construction and the starting point for a natural experience in a class of its own. Every metre along what is probably the most beautiful panoramic road in the Alps offers breathtaking views of majestic mountain peaks, glaciers, green valleys and forests.
The Grossglockner High Alpine Road blends seamlessly into nature and leads, bend by bend, deeper into the Hohe Tauern National Park. Alongside the route, numerous information points, 15 exhibitions and twelve adventure stations await those interested. In addition, there are seven educational and panoramic trails as well as an extensive network of hiking trails with many cosy restaurants and rustic huts. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road was opened in 1935. It has been a listed monument since 2015, making it the largest monument in Austria.
Current information: The Grossglockner High Alpine Road will be closed in winter from 1 November 2023. Depending on snow conditions, the new season will start in spring 2024.
