Gerlitzen Alpine road, a sensational drive

Gerlitzen Alpe Panoramastraße is a very scenic toll road located on the north shore of Lake Ossiach in the heart of Carinthia, Austria.

The road is mostly paved with a short unpaved section near the end. The drive offers breathtaking views of central Carinthia. Starting from Bodensdorf (near Ossiacher sea), the road is 12km long, climbing up to the panorama car park at an altitude of 1.773m (near Mountain Resort Feuerberg). The scenic road is pretty steep (gradient of 10 - 13 %; width 5 m). It’s quite narrow.
