Views, history & pleasure-filled cuisine

Gerlos Alpine Road is an important mountain pass from Salzburg to Tyrol. On its total of 69 kilometres, this mountain road, which is entirely in the west of the Salzburg area of Pinzgau, provides so many opportunities to explore the Alpine landscape between Krimml and Tyrol’s Zillertal. These days it is barely unimaginable that this well-developed road was nothing more than a cart track in the time of Salzburg’s prince-archbishopric, on which the Tyrolean’s transported gold to Salzburg. An exciting history lies behind the genesis of Gerlos Alpine Road! In addition, this wonderful experience road doesn’t stint on pleasure and delicious treats! Your corporeal well-being is taken care of in the cosy Alpine inns and restaurants with hearty speciality dishes!
