    Grossglocknerin High Alpine road are worth the drive at the beginning of may, when it is opened. Along the route is snow and spring plants flowering (Edelweiss, etc.). Exquisitely beautiful way, not very kapeakaan.

    beautiful setting among the Austrian Alps costs 35 euro per car but definitely worth it to do it all. Many motorcyclists of all kinds. I would recommend taking the gallery walk 2 km long but worth it.

    Street spectacular for panorama and adrenaline. Extremely busy by bikers and motorists excited to test the horses of their respective engines. Worth every last cent of the ticket price for what it offers. Very well kept as maintenance (asphalt on top); the lanes are wide. The great thing though is at night: If you get a chance I recommend spending at least one night in the facilities there are along the way; with the curfew there is virtually nobody who circulates; from the various sights you can listen to the silence of these beautiful areas.
