Salzburg is one of Europe’s leading driving experience and automotive product event destinations, and for good reason. Many suppliers complement the panoramic and scenic roads in the province of Salzburg, and the one we’d love to uncover for you is Hotel Gut Brandlhof. They have a brand-neutral showroom that is used by motorbike and car producers for different events. The space also provides a car wash, mechanical garage with hydraulic lifts and showrooms, including meeting space for up to 700 people with 200 bedrooms that can also serve smaller or large conferences.
1. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road
The Grossglockner High Alpine Road leads from Fusch-Ferleiten in Salzburg to Heiligenblut in Carinthia. The origin of the high alpine road – suitable for car, bus, motorbike and bicycle traffic – can be traced to road engineer Franz Wallack and the forward-looking state governor of Salzburg, Franz Rehrl. The road is like a decoration of ribbons placed between green mountain pastures, colourful flower meadows, rocky terrain as well as ice and show.
It nestles up against hills, follows the course of the natural ground and hugs the mountains like a glove. Gushing waterfalls, the shrill whistling of marmots and the howling wind in the summit regions create an unforgettable, high-alpine soundscape. And then, all of a sudden, he appears: his majesty, the Grossglockner, the black mountain! Join us for a journey beyond compare up high to the perpetual ice of the glacier!
2. Gerlos Alpine Road
Gerlos Alpine Road is the one leading from Salzburg to Tirol and, following its course, there is the chance to overlook the highest waterfalls in Europe – Krimmler. It also connects the village centre of Wald with the district of Königsleiten, a renowned and popular ski region. Located in the far west of the Pinzgau, part of the province of Salzburg, the mountain road is a great way to explore the alpine landscape between Krimml and the Tyrolean Zillertal.
The most beautiful time to experience the alpine road is between May and late October. During the winter months, the Gerlos Alpine Road leads directly to the Zillertal Arena ski region. The absolute highlights of the mountain road are the WasserWelten Krimml and the Krimml Waterfalls, plunging deep into the valley from a height of 380m.
3. Rossfeld Panoramic Road
Come any time of the year to enjoy the breathtaking journey on the Roßfeldpanoramastraße (horse field panoramic motorway). The road leads from Salzburg towards Bavaria and you can either take your car out for a leisurely spin or use the bus to go from Berchtesgaden in Bavaria via the Obersalzberg to the alpine mountains or take the road from Unterau via Oberau.
Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy the stunningly beautiful views of the monumental massif of the Hoher Göll, the Kehlstein, and the Tennen and Dachstein mountain ranges. Let your eyes wander over the Berchtesgaden and Salzburg area. The hiking tours in the summer and skiing paradise in the winter simply demand a trip there to experience it at least once in your life.
