Situated at the northwestern edge of Carinthia at the border with East Tyrol and Salzburg, Heiligenblut is located in a high valley of the Alpine Hohe Tauern mountain range at the foot of the Grossglockner, the highest mountain in Austria, and the Pasterze Glacier. Other peaks include the Johannisberg and the Fuscherkarkopf in the north, both part of the Alpine divide and the border with Salzburg. The construction of the nearby railway tunnel to the Fleißalm mountain area at 1,798 metres (5,899 ft) is unique in Europe. The 1.6 km (1 mi) long tunnel is filled with water during the summer but serves as a railway tunnel leading to the Fleißalm winter sports region in winter
