  • Day32

    Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Hohe to Heiligenblut

    June 2, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    12.5 km/173m ascent/1,267m descent
    Day one was everything I hoped for, plus more........more rocky tracks, more icy river crossings, more slippery ice slopes, more cow poo covered, icy slippery rocky slopes .... the challenges just kept coming but we did it and it was incredible.

  • Day31

    Heiligenblut

    June 1, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    Today we took the train and taxi bus from Salzburg to the alpine village of Heiligenblut which is at the base of the Grossglockner Mountain. We have the perfect combination of blue skies, sunshine and snow on the alps .....picture perfect.

  • Day2

    Kaiser Franz-Josefs-Höhe am Gletscher

    August 18 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Auch hier nur ein kurzer Nothalt, alles überfüllt, mittelprächtiges Parkplatzchaos, Menschenmassen. Der Gletscher seit unserem letzten Besuch - erschreckend.
    Aber trotzdem schön. Strecke wieder toll, aber alle wollten weg von dem Getümmel. Nicht mehr "immer wieder Sonntags" ....

    Day 538: Grossglockener High Road

    August 6, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Headed out from Abtenau and headed further south, this time aiming for Italy. To get there, we were taking the Grossglockener High Road, built in the 1930s by the Austrian government as a Depression-era works program to get people employed. It was the first ever road designed as a scenic tourist road, and nobody was sure it would ever attract tourists.

    But it did, and today is one of the biggest attractions in Austria! It's bloody expensive - 36 euros for a car, which we only discovered when we got there. But we spent most of the day driving it. Lots of hairpin corners, intense gradients going up and down, and of course lots of incredible views.

    They had a whole bunch of information stops at various points along the road, most of which we ended up stopping at, so that was quite good. We wanted to make a decent fist of it since it's likely to become a World Heritage Site next year.

    After a lot of driving we crossed into Italy, and settled into our accommodation for the night. It's a funny spot here, because it's Italy but ethnically and linguistically it's completely Germanic. The area was only ceded to Italy after World War I (remember that Italy was on "our" side and fought viciously against the defeated Austro-Hungarian empire).

    Moving on tomorrow!

    Alpen Tag1: Auf gehts in die Berge

    July 24, 2016 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Morgens 6 Uhr in Deutschland: Der Wecker klingelt. Aber das Aufstehen ist mir besser gelungen als gedacht... Mehr oder minder schnell habe ich noch meine restlichen Sachen zusammengepackt und dann holten Rosa und Sim mich ab. Auf gings in den Urlaub. :D
    Dieses Mal nach Österreich in die Alpen. Heute war unser Ziel der Campingplatz in Heiligenblut. Wir haben ca. 10 Stunden gebraucht wurden dafür zum Schluss aber mit tollen Aussichten auf der Großglocknerstraße belohnt. In den nächsten Tagen werden wir die Gegend erwandern... Aber nun heißt es ab in die Heia, damit wir morgen gut wach werden... Bis dahin...Read more
