    In addition to mountain and glacier you can see numerous marmots and, with a little luck, ibex. Quite apart from the view of the 3,798 m high Großglockner. The Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe gets its name because the Kaiser, together with his Sisi, probably admired Austria's highest mountain at exactly this point.

    The parking garage is huge and free!
    If you are smart, you drive up to the top deck, "sun deck", from there you have a beautiful view and you can go directly into the marmot path and hike to the Svarowski observation point.

    for me the starting point - for the runners of the Großglocknerlauf the goal

    From here you have a beautiful view of the Großglockner. There is also a hiking trail around the Grossglockner. The landscape is beautiful.

    Great view of the Grossglockner. From there you can also take the glacier cable car down for a fee. Very interesting 10 years ago, this year the glacier is unfortunately just a lake. Still worth it. The journey via the Glöckner High Alpine Road alone is worth a visit.
