Eastern Alps Travel Guide

Grossglockner Highway

One of the best-known roads in the Alps, the Hochalpenstrasse—rising to more than 2,438 meters (8,000 feet) and negotiating 36 hairpin bends, with spectacular views the whole way—leads you deep into the Hohe Tauern National Park. The highway is generally open from May through November, but only during daylight hours. There’s a toll of €34.
