Grossglockner Driving Tour 

Our Grossglockner Driving Tour gives you the opportunity to drive possibly the greatest driving road in Europe not once, but twice as part of a three night package touring the Bavarian and Austrian Alps. 

This 3 night trip starts in the vibrant city of Munich and includes two full days of driving in the mountains to the south of the city.  From Munich city you will tour south, initially via a great stretch of the legendary Derestricted (no speed limit) German Autobahn, picking up the scenic German Apline Road, before crossing into Austria, and heading into the heart of the Austrian Alps. Next you will 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 pretty village of Lienz, the most southern town in Austria, set directly on the river Lienz.  The following day, you return north back to Munich, once again driving the pass, before heading through the glitzy ski resort of Kitzbhuel, where you will stop for lunch.  The final stratch of the drive includes a run around the beautiful Bavarian Lakes, before joining the Autobahn once again, back to the city for a final evening.

If you want to tick this road off your bucket list, this trip is not going to leave you disappointed.   The only decison then is which car?
