Grossglockner - Hochalpenstrasse is an alpine toll-road taking you to the highest mountains of Austria with a hight of 3.798 m above the Sea-level. In the year 1800 the first successful expedition reached its peak and still today you may get there only when you are an experienced climber.
Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse is a toll-road and at first sight it looks quite expensive, BUT with that fee you dont only get the toll for the road, but in fact also all of the parking-fees and entry-fees to all museums along the road to Heiligenblut.
Some of the hotels in that area will refund that toll, when you stay for a few days

The dayticket for cars is 28 euros / for motorbikes 18 euros the 15-day ticket for cars: 35 / 25 euros for motorbikes
the 30day ticket for cars: 45 / 35 euros for motorbikes
the round-ticket for cars: 32 / 24 euros for motorbikes
something special for motorbikers:

Motorradhimmel Großglockner / Biker's heaven is a new project in the aea in order to improove the facilities along Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse for motor-bikers.
So they will find lots of garages and changing rooms or shelter-rooms for bad weather conditions. At Kaiser Franz-Josefs-Hoehe they will even find special lockers (see my 2nd picture), big enough to store their leather-overalls, the helmet and luggage etc. while taking a walk in the mountains. these lockers are free of charge, you need a 1-euro-coin that you will get back at the end.

The bikers-day-ticket for the toll-road is 18 euros !
25 euros for the 15-day-ticket
35 euros for the 30-day-ticket
