Franz Josef

Located in the World Heritage Site that is home to its eponymous glacier, the town of Franz Josef provides a comfortable and welcoming rest spot for adventurers after a long day out on the ice.

With numerous places to stay and good, fresh food all around, Franz Josef is a smart town in a formidable area.
