The Grossglockner High Alpine Road is a fantastic experience with breathtaking mountain views. We were lucky that is was a nice sunny day and not too many clouds, so that the mountains and the Grossglockner were in full view. So do check the weather forecast. The cost for a car is Euro 36, which seems a lot, but is well worth it if you make into a full day trip. You also get a good map of the road. There are many sharp U-bends, but just take your time and ignore the traffic behind you. Just be aware if you have passengers that tend to get travel sick, as this may not be the best road for them. Along the road there are many places where you can stop and recommend to stop as many times as you want to take into the ever changing mountain scenery. The road ends at the point where you can see the Grossglockner and from there you return to your entry point. Along the route there are several places providing dining and toilet facilities. We were visiting in June, but it was already busy enough, so recommend an early start. After 8 hours we were travel weary and in retrospect should have stayed to see the sunset, but maybe next time. We had a unforgettable day out with lasting memories.
