  • Accessible by car only by Grossglockner Alpine Road 38 eur per car. Enough parking spaces in a free multi-level garage. Good Apfelstrudel 5 eur and coffee in the restaurant with an amazing view. Good Wienerschnitzel for lunch. A lift down the valley additionally paid 9 eur and then 20 min walk, but it's also possible to climb down on a crazy steep path 40 min to the lake. Another hour to touch the glacier. A real blast.
  • Nothing bad to say about the Alps! And yes, it’s a must for a motorcycle ride.
