The Großglockner High Alpine Road: Where Nature And the Perfect Driving Road Are Close Together

The very first time I drove to the Großglockner Hochalpenstraße had been in August last year. During this trip, I uncovered a love for road trips that I had always been dormant. I visited one of the most scenic and beautiful driving roads on this continent. Due to this strong emotional connection, it should come as no surprise that in June of this year I decided to pack my snack stach and return.

Thus armed with everything I needed I set off and arrived with little to no problems at one of the few places I call home. One of the perks of going to the Großglockner briefly after the opening of the road is that the snow still lingers at the sides. I had been yearning for such a photo for a year, and now I finally had the opportunity:

As I snapped this photo, I could feel the magic of this place again, and finally I knew why I had yearned to go back since the moment I had left a year prior. Below are further photos that capture the sheer beauty of the Großglockner High Alpine Road:

... it is also an important spot for cyclist since it marks the finishing line of the peak break at 2431 meters above sea-level.
