The Grossglockner High Alpine Road (in German Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße) is the highest surfaced mountain pass road in Austria.
It connects Bruck in the state of Salzburg with Heiligenblut in Carinthia via Fuscher Törl and Hochtor Pass at 2,504 m (8,215 ft). The road is named after the Grossglockner, Austria’s highest mountain.
I can’t remember what I was reading that lead me to read the above passage of text, but for some reason it seemed like a really appealing road to drive!
Two months, and a 22 year old Lexus later I was at the foot of it ready to go.
