On the way there, you can experience a 4,000 km journey to the Arctic. On the climb from 1,500 m to “Kaiser Franz Josefs Höhe” you will cross all vegetation zones, from crop fields to eternal ice.

Various exhibitions and events along the high alpine road will teach you all about Austria’s highest mountain.
