Glacier Express top station
After the trail runners (P105, P90 & P45-Glacier) have put the highest point of the race behind them along the Mittagskogel wind gap (3,070 m), the aid station of the Glacier Express top station at Pitztal Glacier awaits.
The so-called ‘Mittelbergferner’ glacier is the second highest glacier of Tyrol after the ‘Gepatschferner’ and is located in the Ötztal Alps at the end of the Pitztal valley. It is the highest glacier of Tyrol and home to Café 3.440, the highest café in Austria on the Hintere Brunnenkogel peak.
Tip: the restaurant at the top station is also home to Austria’s highest confectionary shop. At this altitude, it is the weather that determines production: when the weather is fine, sponge mixture is stocked up because the dough will otherwise get too heavy!
