Queen of the mountain passes
That is exactly how the Großglockner High Alpine Road is described, after all it is the most beautiful and also the best known panoramic road in Europe. At over 48 km in length and with 36 breath-taking switchbacks, this dreamy road heads up to over 2500m altitude, taking visitors into the thick of things in the breath-taking realm of the Hohe Tauern. Panoramic views and landscape are not all that the Großglockner High Alpine Road has to offer though.
In July 2015, to mark its 80th birthday, the Großglockner High Alpine Road received landmark status. An honour worthy of one of the most breath-taking edifices in Austria. The panoramic road through the Hohe Tauern, which provides a unique link between the towns of Fusch a.d. Glocknerstraße in the north and Heiligenblut in the south, is one of the main attractions in the Hohe Tauern.
