Großglockner HochalpenstraßeEnjoy the views from this toll road across the central alpine chain, connecting Fusch and Heiligenblut. Built in 1935, it is one of Austria's most scenic roads. Many parking areas and visitor platforms provide breathtaking views of the high alpine scenery on Austria's highest mountain, Großglockner (literally:Big Bell), its largest glacier, Pasterze glacier, and many other features. The road rises up to above sea level and is only open from the beginning of May until the beginning of November. During the rest of the year it is covered with huge amounts of snow. There are two dead end roads that both end in scenic viewpoints. One goes to the high Edelweißspitze, the other one to the visitor center on Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe with views to the Pasterze glacier and Großglockner.
Should it be snowing on the top, and you have no 4×4 vehicle or snowchains, you will not be allowed to get on the road.
