I invite you to join me for an exciting 2-day ascent to the Grossglockner (3798 m), the highest mountain in Austria. This time, we are going to climb it by the Stüdl ridge.

The Grossglockner is also the highest peak in the Alps, east of the Brenner Pass. It’s part of the Hohe Tauern range. From the summit of this pyramid-shaped mountain, we will enjoy an unforgettable panorama! It’s a favorite among climbers around the world.

We will meet at the Lucknerhaus parking lot (1918 m). From there, we will climb to the Stüdl hut (2.802 m) and get ready for our ascent.

On the second day, we will have breakfast and then, up to the summit!I will guide you through the Stüdlgrat, an amazingly defined ridge. Then, we will descend via the normal path. You can check the detailed program below this description.

Did you find this ascent to the Grossglockner tempting? Then contact me for more information! It will be my pleasure to guide you up there and enjoy the spectacular views from the summit.

I also offer a guided ascent to the Grossvenediger, either by the normal route or by the West ridge. Check them out!


Day 1


From the parking lot at Lucknerhaus (1918 m), we will climb through the Ködnitztal to the Stüdl hut (2802 m). It will take us 2.30 hours approx. (800 metres ascent).

Day 2

Grossglockner summit

After a good breakfast, we will start the climb over the Teischnitzkees to the entrance of the Stüdl ridge (approx. 1.30 hour). We will then follow the marked rock ridge, which will lead us directly to the Grossglockner summit (3798 m).
Afterwards we will descend via the normal path to the Erzherzog-Johann-Hütte (3451 m), where we will recover ourselves and then continue the descent further.
It will take us in total about 10 hours. (↑ 1000 m, ↓ 1800 m)
