    The Glocknerhaus stands in picturesque surroundings in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park. Due to its location directly on the Hochalpenstraße you can easily reach it in the summer months from Heiligenblut with the hiking bus. Not far from the Glocknerhaus, you will also find a large supermarket. More information about the Glocknerhaus at alpenverein.at/klagenfurt/berg_aktiv/huetten/glocknerhaus/glocknerhaus.php

  • The Glocknerhaus, located below the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe, is an ideal starting point for further hikes, be it in the direction of Pasterze or up in the direction of the Pfandlscharte.

  • The Glocknerhaus is located at the foot of the highest mountain in Austria, the Grossglockner, and is an ideal starting point for hikes and mountain tours in the Glockner group in the Hohe Tauern National Park. The house can be reached by car via the toll road Großglockner Hochalpenstraße.

  • Good-run guest house with friendly hosts, but due to the fact that it can be reached by car, it no longer has the charm of a real mountain hut. Nevertheless: great view, good food and decent rooms, in which the dog is also allowed.

  • The Großglocknerhaus is an ideal starting point for hikes. If you take the time to look at nature and landscape, you can also spot marmots.
