It is a breathtaking experience to stand on the highest mountain in Austria. A popular starting point for the demanding ascent of the 3,798 meter high mountain is the Erzherzog-Johann hut, about one and a half hours away. You should only climb the summit of the Grossglockner in good weather conditions and with sufficient alpine experience.
Climbing with a local mountain guide, for example from Kals, is highly recommended. There is also the possibility to take part in a guided tour with Haflingers. The horses take on the transport of the backpacks on part of the route: blog.osttirol.com/sport-aktiv/glocknertreck-naturabventure-superlative
