You can expect a particularly varied and scenic day tour in the immediate vicinity of the Grossglockner.

From the Glocknerwinkel car park via the Glorerhuette (2651 metres) to the Salmhuette (2644 metres) - here you have 2 hiking options:

    1. Starting from the Glorerhuette, you take the so-called "Lucknerweg" - here you have to descend a steel rope-secured descent and climb stairs and hike across the branched arms of the Leiterbach into the valley of the same name, to the Salmhuette, which is a bit higher on the opposite slope.

    2. Another route bypasses the mentioned slope step further to the right and reaches the hut in a more terrain-friendly way in a little more time.
