Embossing a. Size – 180 years ago the 3,657 meter high Großvenediger, one of the highest mountains in Austria, was climbed for the first time. The broadcaster Servus TV is taking this as an opportunity to show a documentary about the massive massif in the Hohe Tauern National Park today in the “Bergwelten” series.
One of the protagonists of the show is Sigi Hatzer, who was from Pregraten and who climbed the summit for the first time at the age of 14. In the documentary, the camera accompanies him on his 1000th ascent of Großvenediger, which he tackles from Prägraten.
The Venediger group, the largest contiguous glacier area of the Hohe Tauern, feeds the Isel, East Tyrol’s water artery. Many other natural beauties, myths and stories of the Großvenediger region are the subject of the program. “The Großvenediger – The Ancient Majesty” can be seen today, Monday, March 22nd, at 8:15 pm.
