Grossvenediger - his ancient majesty

Climb to the top of Salzburg’s highest peak

The Grossvenediger is frequently referred to as “his ancient majesty” due to its imposing appearance and the fact that, at 3657 m above sea level, it is the tallest mountain in the province of Salzburg. It was long regarded as unclimbable and even the Grossglockner, the highest mountain in all of Austria, was conquered a number of years before the Grossvenediger.

This striking, glaciated mountain is part of the Venediger Group in the Hohe Tauern range. It was first climbed by intrepid mountaineers in 1841.

What many people don’t know: The name of the Venediger Group in the Hohe Tauern mountains likely originated with the traveling merchants who once crossed the Tauern range on their way to Venice (“Venedig” in German ), or from the fact that, when visibility is just right on a perfectly clear day, it is believed you can see all the way to Venice, which is 180 km away as the crow flies.



Salzburg’s highest 3000 m peak can be taken on as part of a 1 ½ day tour that sets out from Obersulzbachtal, including one night spent at the Kürsingerhütte - the ultimate challenge for surefooted summiteers in top physical condition.




The ascent from the north, the route taken by the mountaineers who first conquered the mountain, treats you to landscapes that are nothing less than magnificent. On the first day, you will hike independently up to the Kürsingerhütte. The preceding valley hike along the roughly 13 km-long Obersulzbachtal can be shortened significantly with the help of the hiking taxi. Once you reach the goods lift for the Kürsingerhütte, you have the choice of either taking the regular trail, known as the "Klamml", up to the hut, or following the path in the direct action of the glacier lake, ascending along its northern shore via the Kürsinger via ferrata to the hut. (Important: Here, you will need a climbing harness and a full set of via ferrata gear, including helmet!)

The next day, you will set out bright and early with the mountain guide. Still led by the light from your headlamp, you will make your way towards the start of the glacier. Here, you will rope up and, if needed, put on your crampons. Now comes a steady climb, past imposing glacial crevasses, towards the Venedigerscharte. The last few meters to the summit cross take you across a very exposed snowy ridgeline.

Hohe Tauern Guide

Hohe Tauern Guide In summer, we accompany you on high tours of Salzburg’s tallest mountain – the Grossvenediger, either as part of an alpine touring course or on a glacial trek from Krimmler Achental to Obersulzbachtal – or are you more in the mood for a little bit of rock climbing? In that case, the "Kronprinz Rudolf", a family-friendly fixed-cable climb, close to the Rudolfshütte in Stubachtal, is probably just what the doctor ordered. 

In winter, too, you can experience your own personal adventure with us. Be that a ski tour, including the thrill of a glacier, to the top of the Stubacher Sonnblick, a beginner’s ski tour of the Ronachgeier in the Kitzbühel Alps, or, in springtime, a high-alpine ski tour in the Hohe Tauern. Whatever you prefer, we will be right there at your side during your personal mountain adventure!  For a great alternative to skiing, how about snowshoeing through incomparable winter landscapes. However, if you are in the mood for a little more action, maybe ice climbing with the experts from Tauernguide is just what you’re looking for.

Work, stress, reports, stats, deadlines, annoying bosses. Enough! A pair of hiking boots, a rucksack, a good mountain guide and out into nature. A rushing stream, alpine meadows, then things gradually take a turn for the better. With my destination clearly in mind. With every drop of sweat that runs off my brow, the pressure eases. Finding my way back to who I truly am. Letting go. Escaping completely.
