The highest road of Europe 🇪🇺 Loved it ❤️ Can't explain the pleasure to ride on the top a cafe and the view point is another level beauty. Totally worth it to spend your time with loved ones.. Wish you a happy ride 😊 Drive safe..
One of the most scenic road passes in Europe. Worth to cross or drive only to the highest point with a tunnel. Road is easy to drive, not too step and the toll gate is well organized on a flat section. Actualy the most scenic part is the side road going to Franz Josef Hohe park house and restaurant. From there you can admire the Grossglockner and the shrinking glacier. Parking is free of charge.
