We did not fully know in advance how this trip works, and we kind of expected we would just drive up there, park and walk a short distance to a nice viewpoint. It is, however, more complicated than that (in a good way). :) First,...More

The crazy Austrians actually built a power plant here, way up in the Alps (more than 2000m above sea level). I'll never forget the view. It was snowing in early September, so yeah, bring good clothes, especially boots!

Lovely views; but we had no warning that our descent would be delayed due to a bunch of sports cars ascending the route!
