Fantastic views

A beautiful drive to the top, with many sops to see the Border where Slovenia, Italy and Austria come together. An alpine garden is a nice stop.

I very lovely drive up this mountain road. Very good road, fantastic vistas and easy to get to view points.Stop often and look around. At the summit, well not quite since you have to walk a bit, a spectacular vista awaits you. A nice, typical alpine restaurant with typical austrian food and a good beer is your reward.It is deffinately... More

Way worth while. Great view! Not as steep as most alpen strasse. And a must see for people who like mountain views! There is a short walk to the top that I would definitely recommend!

On the edge of town, this road quickly takes the explorer to heights with spectacular scenery! Good paved road, well marked turnouts and scenic overlooks. perfect for the photographer.

Nice ride up the mountain with scenic views out over the Julian Alps. We did this while driving from Lake Bled in Slovenia to Venice and it was well worth the slight detour. There is parking near the top and trails...but be prepared as the weather can become inclement pretty quickly.

Well worth the €15 toll for a blast up the hill :o) If you fancy walking to the summit be property equipped, as it is properly mountainous at the summit (ie warm clothes and waterproofs in case the weather changes).

After some 15 km of curves through the forest you get to the "Rosstratten" parking area (1700 m) and the most incredible view into the Julian Alps and Nockberge and Karawanken Mountains! The fee for this panorama-road is well worth it! If you are in the mood, hike all the way to the top of the Dobratsch mountain. Allow 1,... More

OK - lets get the toll out of the way first. 15.50 Euros to take your car onto the alpine road. But for that, you get access to 15km of mountain road. Easy driving, which takes you up to an altitude of about 1700m. There are car parks where you can walk a very short distance to take in the... More
