The driving experience

Driving experience Gerlos Alpine Road

Gorgeous pass road for motorcyclists, car drivers and vintage car fans

The Gerlos Alpine Road might not be the highest or the most spectacular, but it certainly is one of the pass roads in the Eastern Alps that is most enjoyable to drive on. With a maximum gradient of 9% and eight elegant turns, you won’t even take vintage cars to their limit on the 12 km core section from Krimml up to the pass summit. Motorcyclists love the smooth route, and even drivers who have less skill in the mountains experience this alpine road without stress. Open all year round, the mountain road has led from Salzburg to Tyrol and vice versa since the 1960s. Receive various tickets for your driving pleasure at the pay desk at the Gerlos pass – from day tickets to affordable tour tickets for bikers.
