Everything about mountain climbing in the Salzburg region
The Hochkönig is 2,943 m high. Its size is massive in every respect. It's not without good reason that the Hochkönig has a legendary reputation among mountain climbers. Among the pros, it ranks up there with the climbing Eldorado of the Arco (Italy) or Chamonix (France). From amateur mountaineers to experienced climbing enthusiasts, there is something to make every climber's pulse race faster with excitement. The variety of ascents and routes up to the highest of difficulty levels make the Hochkönig a climbing and sports paradise - the Hochkönig reveals its most beautiful sides when it comes to via ferrata climbs, high alpine routes, and exposed summit tours. Austrian climbing legend Albert Precht accomplished countless first ascents in his home region. His knowledge about the distinctive mountain ranges of the Hochkönig and their characteristics helped him to make this area accessible with many routes.
