One of Austria's top 3 destinations amidst the Alps The Grossglockner High Alpine Road is like an ornament of ribbons located between green mountain pastures, colourful flower meadows, rocky rubble, ice and show. It nestles up against hills, follows...more
Fair notice, the road is not free. It costs 36 euros for 1 day or 56 for a 30 days pass. But what you get, is probably the most breathtaking views of mountains you have and will ever see.
There are plenty of spots to...More
Unfortunately it was cloudy and wet for most of our trip so most of the incredible views were just grey, but it did clear in places to give you a taste.
Incredible road to drive where some people were obviously more comfortable than others the...More
This has been something I've fancied trying for a few years now so when we booked a short break near-by it was an opportunity not to be missed.
Any dreams you might have of a Top Gear-esque blast across the mountains will soon dissolve when...More
We’ve been here on a beautiful sunny day and wanted to walk to the Oberwalderhütte, but even on a sunny day the weather can turn around in just minutes. Clouds came rolling in 1/2hour before we where at the hut so we turned around. But...More
We climbed Grossglockner on 13 September 2017 and it was amazing expirience!
n order to be able to view the massive Grossglockner glacier means driving through a long twisting alpine toll road the Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse and up the Grossglockner which at 3,789 metres, is Austria's...More
It is really a great road to drive. Nice serpents and would be superb in a real sports car or motorcycle.
For us others we enjoy the great scenery and excellent tarmac.
Note that it close in the evening and is completely closed in winter....More
We had rented a nine seater mercedes van and did the whole drive from morning to late afternoon. The drive has the most amazing views ever. You are extremely close to the snow and every mile is a photo stop. The road has some 12...More
I agree with the above answers, Zell am See is an interesting town, you can take a lift up to the top of the mountains, and a boat trip round the lake. The Grossglockner is best approached from the Zell am See end, through... More
I agree with the above answers, Zell am See is an interesting town, you can take a lift up to the top of the mountains, and a boat trip round the lake. The Grossglockner is best approached from the Zell am See end, through Fusch... But it's well signposted as you approach Zell. You can either go over the Grossglockner road, and return the same route, before you go through the south toll barrier, or do it in one direction, carry on to Lienz, then come back north on that road, but doing this you have to come back via the Felbertauern tunnel, which is a toll tunnel... But it's a nice road, and will bring you back up Where you are staying, via Kitzbuhel. Have fun... It's lovely in Austria.
