The Glocknerkrone

Your majestic high mountain trail in Kals am Großglockner

 

Crown your long distance hiking desires, on this fabulous mountain ridge trail. In six daily stages you will be able to hike the approximately 60 Kilometers of the Glockner Crown, within the realm of theKing Großglockner. High alpine farmland and the famous peaks of Nationalpark Hohe Tauern set the stage. You'll discover Edelweiß Meadow and the nature power spot Spinevitrol, as well as spacious grazing pastures along your way. Providing you with a sense of being in a Tibetan High Valley.

 

Crossing varying vegetation zones, from flower meadows, animal pastures and sparse areas, all the way to scree fields and glacier ice. Culinary delights and the special rustic vibe of our mountain huts await you. The five jewels of our Glockner Crown are the Sudetendeutsche Hütte, Kalser Tauernhaus, Lucknerhütte, Glorerhütte and the Alpen Inn Glödis Refugium.

They are individually reachable, as the final destination of your daily stages and offer you a place for rest and regeneration. Also part of the high mountain Glockner Crown Trail are the Äußere Steiner Alm, Bergeralm, Stüdlhütte and the Salmhütte, where you can stop for refreshments. The Kals-Matreier-Törl Haus or the Adler Lounge will be along your trail, should you decide to have Kals a.G. as your starting point. FYI: You have the opportunity for day hiking every segment of the trail, as you can enter and exit the trail at the end of each daily stage.
