“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014

Try and ensure you can go on a clear day and the views will reward you highly. The drive just to get to the start of this famous area is beautiful. Once you reach the border of the park you pay an entry fee to drive the 48klm road in and return. Lots of viewing spots on route and the glacier at the end is spectacular. We made a day of it and felt it was definitely one of our best experiences in Austria.

“A Must Do Alpine Pass”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014

Although 48km costs 34€, it is a unique experience that one should not miss. Road is fantastic with spectacular views and the presence of snow at the mountain tops gives an heavenly feeling. It certainly a day trip and most time you can spend at Franz-Josefs Höhe specially if you want to have a walk around the Pasterze Glacier. Also there is other nice stuff to look at like the small exhibition on real old Automobiles etc. Lifts are available. Also the food prices there are very acceptable. Use of parking place and washroom are inclusive in the toll price. Edelweißspitze is my favorite, providing a 360° panoramic view of the Alps at an altitude of about 2572 m. Driving up was just a great fun. Driving in your own car is better since you have freedom to stop anywhere you want. With Zell-am-See Kaprun card you pay 30€ instead of 34€. We visited in June-2014. Have fun.
