A beautiful drive along winding scenic, up to the alpine and to Kolnbreinsperre. Stop along the way, wonderful treasure trove at the berg krystal chalet. The Dam is awesome,great Hütte there for gemütlichkeit and traditional Austrian menu.

It really makes you think about your insignificance in this world. Breathtaking masterpiece of engineering. Make sure that it's open for a visit, as usual opening times are from early May until late October. Highly recommended.

Both the Malta road and the dam are spectacular. Do not hurry, enjoy the sights, stop along the way. Interesting visitors center at the dam. Worth hiking along the lake. Don't miss the Sky walk. Free with Karnten card.

From Gmünd up the road to Kolnbreinsperre is a special experience. The road is narrow an winding but feels very safe. It was a very cold summer day. There is a restaurant and a big souvenire shop. .
