Place of the Day: Grossglockner Road

I love Austria.  There's something about the mountains, and being outside, and the beauty of seeing the surrounding landscape that just makes things so very peaceful.  So when I saw this potential place to visit on my next trip to Vienna or Salzburg, I couldn't pass up sharing it as part of this series.  Although, I'm not sure if I'd be one to drive it (even though I love driving):



The road is one of the most winding and breathtaking routes through the mountains, and follows what used to be a medieval trade route through the Alps.  You'll see a variety of land changes, from mountains to valleys to plains.  Just make sure you take the curves at a slow rate of speed.  Or, I might consider taking a bus tour through to avoid driving and enjoy the views.

Flying into Salzburg will get you the closest to the road, and you can branch out from there for trips and side excursions.

It's definitely on my list for a future trip!
