  • A portrait of the Grossglockner Alpine road in the Austrian Alps, by celebrated photographer Stefan Bogner
Full Description

The ‘Grossglockner’, Austria’s highest mountain at 3,789m, is one of the most important summits of the Eastern Alps – and not only because it is so important for alpine tourism.

At the end of the 18th Century, it had been explored and nobody less than Arch Bishop Salm-Reiffenscheidt-Krautheim was the first to ascend in 1800. Today, with more than 5000 ascents per year, it is a very popular destination for climbers.

But even for those who do not want to climb, the fascination of this mountain is hard to escape. There is no better way to investigate than from the ‘Grossglockner’ High Alpine roads. The road leads across both mountain passes Fuscher Törl and Hochtor, crossing the main Alpes from Salzburg to Carinthia, with turnoffs to the Edelweiss peak and the Kaiser-Franz-Josef-height. The road as an adventure trip and its 12% ascent has to be well managed. Who would be more capable to report about all this than Stefan Bogner, the master of the automobile photo books? With fuel in his blood and a sensitive feel for history, but also with accelerator and brake, he provides a portrait of one of the most exciting and most visited Alpine roads.
