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

Book one day for this place. Enter the area around 9AM, spend the two hours on the way up. Park the car up on the top parking lot and walk to the peak with hundreds of cows and bulls around. You will see the most beautiful nature in Austria with amazing scenery all over the lakes around.

The road is great way to get into the mountains quickly for a beautiful view. We have taken all our visitors there, and even those who are not very mobile could enjoy it. For the more active, I highly recommend the walk to the top. It takes about 90 minutes, but there's a café (hut) at top, so you can... More

When in Villach be sure to drive the Alpenstrasse. 16 km drive through some of the most beautiful mountain scenery. Many stops along the way, hiking trails abound. From here you can see views in Austria, Italy and Slovenia. Pack a picnic lunch and be sure to take your time. Simply beautiful.
