Strubklammstraße, one of the narrowest roads in Austria

Located in the state of Salzburg, and running along the Almbach river, the Strubklammstraße is one of the narrowest roads in Austria.


The road is paved but very narrow. Not recommended if you don't know how to reverse.  It is 6.0 km (3.72 miles) long, running west-east from the L-107 road on Hinterebenau to Faistenau, just east of Salzburg. The road runs along the Almbach river through a 100 meters deep canyon, offering some great views. The gorge is directly behind the guardrail.

The drive is very challenging in winters. Road closures can be frequent, so check conditions before traveling to this area. During heavy snowfalls, the road is repeatedly blocked due to avalanches. It was rebuilt around 1906. Driving along the rocky landscape and bending on the curves of this road is a thrilling experience that enthusiast drivers will enjoy.
