The Großer Zunig

Thanks to its central position, the Großer Zunig is one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains in East Tyrol. However, the significant altitude difference of 1,628 m makes the climb very demanding. You must be physically fit for this tour. From the Guggenberg parking lot, a forest road leads to the Zunigalm snack station at an elevation of 1,855 m. The well-marked path takes you to the deep green Zunigsee and continues via the flower-covered ridge uphill to the Zunigscharte. The northeast ridge is very steep but easy to climb. It leads directly to the summit, where your efforts will be rewarded with a wonderful panoramic view of the Dolomites and the Tauern Massif.

The Großvenediger

With a height of 3,662 m, it is the tallest peak of the Venediger group and the fourth highest mountain in Austria. The glaciated Großvenediger is located on the border of East Tyrol and Salzburg. From Hinterbichl, a gently inclining farm road leads into the Dorfertal to the Johannishütte at an elevation of 2,116 m. A well-marked mountain hiking path continues to the Defreggenhaus at an elevation of 2,964 m. From here, you can already see the snow of the glacier. Beginning behind the Mullwitzaderl at an elevation of 3,798 m is an ascent to the glacier requiring crampons, climbing rope, and maybe a mountain guide. Via the Rainer Törl, you come to the icy summit of the Großvenediger at an elevation of 3,666 m. From here, you have a wonderful view of the Hohe Tauern National Park and surrounding Dolomites, the Dachstein, and many other mountains.

Basic info

Difficulty: a mountain guide is recommended
Equipment: crampon, climbing rope, alpine mountaineering gear
Trail conditions: glacier

Ochsenbug / Kristallkopf

In the southeast of the Venediger group, this national park summit tour leads up to an elevation of 3,007 m. Even if the Kristallkopf appears inaccessible at first glance, the rocky summit of the distinctive Ochsenbug is a wonderful tour for experienced mountain climbers. From Hinteregg at an elevation of 1,433 m, a hiking path goes to the Nunitzwiesen. There are two small wooden huts here. Right before this, the path changes direction and leads to the mighty northern face of the Hintereggkogel. The large cross on the Kristallkopf is a top-class viewing point. The rocky summit of the striking Ochsenbug poses no problem for experienced mountain climbers. The best way to descend is along the same route.

Basic info

Difficulty: challenging tour, for experienced and physically fit mountain climbers
Equipment: pick ice or crampons recommended

The Großglockner

Austria's highest mountain with an impressive elevation of 3,798 m, the Großglockner, has fascinated mountain climbers from the very beginning. From the Kalser side, there are two main ascents of the Glockner. Both begin at Alpengasthof Lucknerhaus at an elevation of 1,920 m. One ascent (ca. 2.5 hrs.) leads to the Lucknerhütte at an elevation of 2,241 m and continues to the Stüdlhütte at 2,802 m. This is where the paths separate. the normal ascent leads via the Ködnitzkees to Erzherzog Johann Hütte at 3,454 m in ca. 2.5 hrs. We recommend an overnight stay here. The next morning, you will reach the summit in around 1.5 hrs. The Großglockner is Austria's highest mountain and offers probably the most beautiful panorama from its peak. The descent is the same as the ascent. The second ascent leads from the Stüdlhütte in ca. 1.5 hrs. via the die Schere and the Teischnitzkees to the entrance of the Stüdlgrat. In the lower part, this tour has a difficulty level of I and II, in the upper part mainly III, and in a few places III+. With good conditions, you can climb/hike from the hut to the summit in ca. 4 hrs. This will take longer of course in bad conditions. The descent follows the main path first to the Adlersruhe and then into the valley.
