CAPE TEGETTHOF (Hall Island)
Over 190 islands complete the Franz Josef Land group, covering an area of more than 16,000 square kilometers. Hall Island is one of many islands in the archipelago that is almost totally covered by glaciers. Cape Tegetthoff is a headland on the south end of Hall Island, one of the larger islands in the Franz Josef Land group. Hall Island was named after American Arctic explorer Charles Francis Hall. The dramatic rock scenery of Cape Tegetthoff was named by an Austrian-Hungarian expedition after their expedition ship, the Admiral Tegetthoff, which was stuck in the ice south of Wilzek Island in August 1873. The remains of Wellmann's 1898/99 expedition hut can still be seen.
