The winding paved road, with a maximum gradient of 9%, links Salzburg and Tyrol.  This road has innumerable twists and turns. Located in the High Tauern National Park, this toll road was built between 1960 and 1962. It’s 12-kilometre long with eight serpentines.

It’s open all year round. The journey offers an exhilarating driving experience, with superb views. The road is a great way to explore the alpine landscape leading to the 380-meter high Krimml Waterfalls. Its highest elevation is at 1.628m above the sea level.
