Haute Route (France-Switzerland)

The Großglockner is Austria's highest mountain and the highest mountain in the Alps east of the Brenner Pass. This makes it, after Mont Blanc, the second most prominent mountain in the Alps, when measured by relative height.

The characteristically pyramid-shaped peak actually consists of two pinnacles, the Großglockner and the Kleinglockner (3,770 m; klein means "small" in German), separated by a saddle-like formation known as the Glocknerscharte.

Difficulty: BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED (Depending on the route to climb)
Good physical conditioning & basic mountaineering experience with the use of crampons and ice axe.


The normal route is more difficult than many other major mountains of the alps. From the Erzherzog-Johann-hut you have to cope with a 35-40 degree steep slope (pure ice in later summer) and with an exposed ridge rated UIAA II.

    2 days climb programme
The aim of this programme is to enjoy a fantastic mountaineering ascent. Maximum guide ratio of 1:2 (normal route).
    Dates & Duration
The season for climbing the Großglockner (without alpine touring ski equipment) is from mid-July until augoust. We only guide private groups, so dates are available on request.
