The Ötztal is a key location for Austrian and German glacier research programs. My colleague Jakob Abermann – now working at the University of Graz once made this great comparison from the summit of Kreuzspitz, and I’m just sharing it with you here as its so striking. It must have been really amazing to see this place back in the days where we really still had glaciers in Austria!
