Austria's highest mountain, the Grossglockner, is one of the most beautiful in the Alps. Its great shining pyramid of ice and rock towers majestically over a vast glacier, Austria's largest. The glacier can be accessed from the popular viewpoint known as Franz Joseph Hohe, which in turn can be reached via the scenic Grossglockner alpine highway, a toll road.
