The Hochkönig is a mountain group containing the highest mountain (Mount Hochkönig) in the Berchtesgaden AlpsSalzburgerlandAustria. The Berchtesgaden Alps form part of the Northern Limestone Alps.

Location

It lies to the west of the town of Bischofshofen in the Austrian state of Salzburg, 42 km due south of the city of Salzburg. Hochkönig is separated from the rest of the Berchtesgaden Alps, and more specifically from the Steinernes Meer (stone ocean) by the mountain pass Torscharte at 2246 m. The summit itself is at the southern edge of a large limestone plateau, which is covered by the glacier known as the "Übergossene Alm", however this glacier is currently shrinking at a rate of 6.2% per year, and is likely to vanish in the relatively near future.

The edge of the summit plateau is surrounded by an almost circular chain of mountains:

  • Hochseiler, 2,793 m above sea level (AA)
  • Lammkopf, 2,844 m above sea level (AA)
  • Hochkönig, 2,941 m above sea level (AA)
  • Großer Bratschenkopf, 2,859 m above sea level (AA)
