Our Gross Glockner Tour gives you the opportunity to drive possibly the greatest driving road in Europe not once, but twice

This 3 night trip starts in Munich and includes two full days of driving.  Start your tour in the city of Munich Germany and then head south into the heart of the Austrian Alps. Cross the iconic GrossGlockner Mountain Pass, rising to more than 2400M, and on our opinion all-round the greatest mountain road in the Alps. Once across the pass, overnight in the village of Lienz, the most southern town in Austria, set directly on the river Lienz.  The following day, drive the pass again in the opposite direction (believe us, it's a totally different experience) before heading through the Bavarian Lakes, and back to Munich for a final evening.

If you want to tick this road off your bucket list, this trip is not going to leave you disappointed.

After lunch, the tour continues directly onto the Gross Glockner, the highest and longest mountain pass in Austria, this is quite simply two hours of driving nirvana.
