We had to visit the Grossglockner and soak up the scenery and the fresh air. The scenery is simply breathtaking and you won't find any better. As you travel up the pass the topology changes with every turn. The view from the top.....stunning!

The view is truly amazing, hard to get a grip of it. Stay for a while and grab something to eat at the peak. If your in Austria, you have to see this!

Went by coach, 36 hairpin bends and one of the most spectacular places I've ever visited. If you go to Austria you must visit here.

I drove by bike until the top... It's stunning, wonderful... You have to pay some euros to drive on that road but it's wonderful for its landscapes. You get the top and then if you like you can walk to the top of the glacier....More

Very nice place with spectacular views and panoramas. Especially if you ride a motorbike this, I'd say, legendary place, is a must see! Even though the entrance to the park is not for free, that's definitely worth it. But do not forget warm clothes! It's...More
