Docudrama / Historical
An historical documentary about the first ascent of the Grossglockner by the Pallavicini route. On 18 August 1876, Margrave Alfred von Pallavicini conquered the 60 degree steep and 600 metre high channel on the north side of the Grossglockner for the first time. It was named after him and is still a challenge for many generations of mountaineers today. The three mountain guides Josef Kramser, Georg Bäuerle and Johann Tribusser, who came from Heiligenblut, were also there. Their pioneering work inspired many others.
Documentary / Chronicle
Since the first ascent in 1800, the Grossglockner has played an important role in the development of alpinism. To this day it is of great importance for tourism in the region and, with over 5000 summits a year, a popular destination for mountaineers and other sportsmen. On foot, by bike or with the snow blowers during the winter clearing we set off on our way to Austria's highest peak.
