Bruck - Großglockner
…the cozy village next to Zell am See and Kaprun.
Bruck-Großglockner is located on the outskirts of the Hohe Tauern National Park in the state of Salzburg, between Zell am See and Kaprun with the glacier area of Kitzsteinhorn.
In the town center the Großglockner-High Alpine Road begins with "kilometer 0". It leads over Fusch and the Hohe Tauern range to the place of pilgrimage, Heiligenblut in Carinthia.
There were small settlements in the municipal area 4,000 years ago in the Stone Age Time. Bruck (Prugg) was first mentioned and documented in the year 1,040. Its relevance grew with the importance of the Salzach bridge as a north-south connection from Salzburg over the Fuscher Tauern onto Italy.
Ecclesiastical valuable architecture was recovered in the St. Georgen parish church with the "gothic wing alter" and the Bruck parish church with the Mother of God statue "Mary on Ice".
Some natural monuments such as linden trees near the Kirchenwirt and Gaferlbauern, whitethorn at Niederhofberg, oak at Wolferlgut - are quiet reminders of an intact natural environment.
The tourist infrastructure of Bruck offers: several internationally distinguished camping areas, hotels, inns, pensions, holiday rooms etc..
