I drove by bike until the top... It's stunning, wonderful... You have to pay some euros to drive on that road but it's wonderful for its landscapes. You get the top and then if you like you can walk to the top of the glacier. The top is some miles away from the car park but it deserves very much... More

Very nice place with spectacular views and panoramas. Especially if you ride a motorbike this, I'd say, legendary place, is a must see! Even though the entrance to the park is not for free, that's definitely worth it. But do not forget warm clothes! It's chilly here when hot in lower mountains. Snow lays here all year around. Besides the... More

At the end you have restaurants and also the gletcher. you have to pay a fee ( toll) on the way to the Grossglockner. ( € 10 and... More

This is the highest mountain in Austria and a must to visit if you are in the Tyrol. I went in early June, just a week after the final snowfall of the spring and the council workers were still clearing the final bits of snow on to side of the road. The views as you travel up (and down) are... More

The road to get here is full of hair pin bends as you ascend the mountain, but it is an absolutely amazing feat of engineering. The views are absolutely spectacular. The Glacier is amazing and absolutely worth a visit.

Kaprun with its glacier offers; big strong fast slopes for skiers and snowboarders. The slopes are professionally cared for, always. This leaves only belong to remember that in December, on the northern slopes is very cold and -28 degrees cersjusza is no exception. We strongly recommend!!!

Grossglockner is the highest mountain in Austria. The bus ride was interesting, cows graze very high, they are under a mountain marmots. People at risk of leg injuries, and wander along the route in the countryside

Didn't really know what to expect when I went on a coach day trip up the Grossglockner, but this was an awesome experience and one I hope I can make again one day. Hats off to our coach driver who did an excellent job on the high alpine road. Even though it was the end of May, the sides of... More
