German Alpine Road

German Alpine Road, a very scenic drive

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.

The surface of the Alpenstraße is asphalted.  It’s 280 miles (450 kms) long and links Schönau (Lake Königssee) and Lindau (Lake Constance) through the Bavarian Alps traversing a unique landscape. The road was built in the 1930s as one of Hitler’s prestige projects. The road offers a varied and magnificent panorama. The route takes you past numerous mountain lakes, Alpine meadows and magnificent castles.
