"Grossglockner Road - Austria's Alpine Country" Kals-am Großglockner by victorwkf

Kals-am Großglockner Travel Guide: 37 reviews and 153 photos

Part of my honeymoon in June 2007

The Grossglockner Road is one of the most beautiful alpine roads in Europe. The road starts from the town of Fusch in the Austrian alpine valley and passes through some of the highest snow-capped mountains in Austria, including Grossglockner (highest mountain in Austria at 3798 metres), all the way to the alpine town of Heilingenblut.

The Grossglockner Road is situated within the Hohe Tauren National Park, one of the largest national parks in Europe. Let me share with you some information and photos of my trip to the Grossglockner Road. Hopefully they are useful to you, and perhaps you can give some comments and ratings. Thanks.

This photograph shows the beautiful Grossglockner Glacier which can be seen at the Franz Josefs Hohe viewpoint (which is also the bus terminus of the OBB Postbus number 651 which makes a once a day trip from the town of Zell Am See up the Grossglockner Road).

The mountain scenery along the Grossglockner Road is really breathtaking, including snow-capped mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, alpine lakes etc. This is not to be missed if you are a nature lover and holidaying in Austria.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Breathtaking mountains, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls etc
  • Cons:Long and winding road, can be windy and cold due to the altitude
  • In a nutshell:One of the best alpine roads in Europe
