Germany

Nebelhorn

The Nebelhorn is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.068m (6,784ft) above the sea level, located in the Allgäu Alps in Germany, near the village of Oberstdorf. The road to the summit is brutally steep, and the slope -in some parts- is inhuman, with gradients up to 45%. It's one of the highest mountain roads of Germany.

Located in central-western Europe, Germany stretches from the Alps, across the North European Plain to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. From north to south its topography varies quite dramatically. The country is traversed by some of Europe's major rivers such as the Rhine, Danube and Elbe.

 

The German Alpine Road is a very scenic drive traversing the most spectacular scenery of the Bavarian Alps, in Germany. The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed. The lanes are wide and the speed limits generous.
