The Scenic Route to Heiligenblut
Your journey to Heiligenblut becomes an outstanding experience in its own right as soon as the Grossglockner High-Alpine Road is declared open for the summer months.
Ever since 1935, the Grossglockner High-Alpine Road has connected Fusch-Ferleiten in the county of Salzburg with Heiligenblut. 48 kilometres long and comprising 36 bends, the mountain pass road winds its way into the very heart of Hohe Tauern National Park. The highest point of the Grossglockner High-Alpine Road is the ‘Edelweissspitze’ with an altitude of just over 2,500 m.
With plenty of stop-over opportunities, scenic viewing points, attractions and visitor centres along the way, the drive itself turns into a fantastic outing – always accompanied by the spectacular panorama of the Hohe Tauern mountains and their mightiest peaks.
