“A fantastic advanture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

The attracting toll road passing along the alpine mountains in Austria is a worth visiting place. This attraction is about 38 km from Maria Alm countryside where we stayed.
Our trip was enjoyable and we didn't expect that we will be interested to that level.
The mountainous road offers you the opportunity to see the pretty nice nature as you get higher and higher. You shall capture some unforgettable photos during your visit.
Don't lose the opportunity to drink from the water coming from the top of Alps.
A mixed feeling of joy and fear captured us sometimes especially my wife when we get higher and higher.
Although we visited the site in Summer (during August) the temperature at the top was about +6C.
You may get there by bike, motorized bike or a car. However, I would recommend using a car because it is safer.
Because of the steep slop which may cause skidding, I don't recommend to visit there in winter since it might be hazardous.

“Lovely Drive and View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

To reach the Main View point it's a lovely drive. It's a mountain drive. We went there during July and it was still covered with snow mostly and while coming back we encountered light snowfall as well. The nature's beauty is one of it's best here.

“Beautifull road trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Grossglockner is vacation for body and soul. Beautiful nature. Clean roads, hours of climbing and driving (depends on what you choose). There is some toll that you need to pay, but it is not too expensive.

“a bikers road to heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Its purely for motorbikes and so outragiously twisty and steep, very technical and difficult to begin with until you get into the swing, the passengers has an important role to play..they have to call if the next section above is clear coz you have to use all of the bend to get round!!A huge tick box for any biker into touring

“Awesome high pass road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was a terrific road to traverse. The scenery is amazing. The only thing you want to keep in mind is that it is that the toll is a little pricey to go over.
