The Möll Gorge
The Möllschlucht Trail takes you through a stunning gorge that has been hollowed out by the Möll River. Located just outside Heiligenblut, this amazing via ferrata at the foot of the Grossglockner features a 420-metre-long, fixed steel rope that runs through the entire gorge. The suspension bridges are much longer than you’d usually expect on this type of trail. With its combination of turquoise rock pools, small waterfalls and dramatic rock-faces, the Möllschlucht Trail makes for an extraordinary hiking experience.
After your efforts, the Sonnblick Inn awaits with delicious refreshment – along with glorious views of Heiligenblut’s famous church and, on a clear day, the majestic Grossglockner itself.
The climbing park at the Sonnblick Inn is a perfect day-out for the whole family. Put your courage (and vertigo) to the test on the high rope course, find different ways to the top of the climbing wall, enjoy the thrills of the zip line or simply have fun on the coordination & playground equipment.
