Climbing highest peak of Austria (3798m) is amasing experience. You are rewarded by breathtaking view to Pasterze glacier with many wateralls beneath Grossglockner, great scenery of Hohe Tauern national park, and surrounding mountains.
Depending on time of the year, it can be very demanding climb, and even in the middle of summer, don't be surprised if you enjoy snow blisters :-)
If you are not very familiar with glacier climbing, winter equipment and roping, you can hire experienced local mountain guide.
Food and accomodation is offered in nearby mountain huts (Lucknerhütte 2241m, Stüdlhütte 2801m, Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte 3450m) where you can buy food, tea, beer ... Plase note that in highest mountain hut in Austria Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte you need to pay for tap water !
Nice area to visit and enoy
