Most beautiful place in Austria. The highest mountain is really impressive. Easy to reach with car, weather is changing quite fast. Before going there don't forget to tak ewarm clothes. Quite strong winds

We drove this high alpine road almost by chance, so totally unprepared for what us there. If you want just a drive with views, restaurants and gift shops, this is for you. If you want a drive with walking opportunities, natural history, geology and much more this is equally for you. The facilities are excellent with loads of cafe stops,... More

Wow, what a wonder of nature! Although weather was bad we still enjoyed seeing this amazing view. The winding road was spectacular and I would like to come back to see this on a better day

this is by far the best drive in Europe. The views are stunning, high alps mountains. They charge 34 euros for entry for a private car but it is much more worth it.

We took a drive on the Grossglockner Hochalpen Strasse. It is a National Park, so you have to pay EUR 34 for a private car. Hairpin curves and stunning views, all the way to the glacier at the foot of Austria's highest peak. There are attractions all along the road which are included in the admission price, so you can...

We took this route when driving from Zell am See to Lienz instead of a highway route. It was a great choice. You pay EUR 34 at the gate for a private gasoline car (EUR 24 for an electric car). The brochure you can buy at the gate costs EUR 5 but there are only a few page available in... More
