Embarked on this drive while staying in Berchtesgaden. Drive is quite scenic, climbing up the bavarian alps with the pinacle being a spot which gives you 360 degree views with a bit of walking. This includes a view of Salzburg. Also have the opportunity to...More

Konigsee was crazy busy and we couldn't even fathom how the Eagle's Nest might be so we planned instead to drive the Rossfeld Panoramastrasse. Just amazing. So glad we did it. Loved maybe most of all (tied with the views) the locally baked cakes you...More

Toll road at the top of the mountains built by the Nazi regime. Very beautiful view through the Alps down to Austria. We stopped at “Ahornkaiser” and took a walk to Putschellerhaus! Down the valley and up the wooden stairs. ~1h. Very nice hut offering...More

We detoured onto this scenic road and paid the 8 Euro toll to do so, but don't let that put you off. It is so worth it! The views are lovely, the road itself is amazing and there are plenty of view places to stop....More

We took a detour to be able to ride this toll road (€8 for a car). It gives some nices views but I wouldn't consider this as a real alpine road. It has 1 viewpoint and that's it, it's not even that high. You do...More

The road has quite nice views to the mountains and is a good starting point to several hikes. In hot weather it is a convenient way to go up to where temperatures are somewhat more bearable. It is nothing really stunning, but worthwhile if in...More

This place should be more promoted! It was totally worth the price (8€). The road was a little bit scary to drive but also very safe, so don’t hesitate and put it on your bucket List!

If you want an overall view of the magnificence of the mountains...this is the perfect drive. Yes it is 8 Euros...but VERY much worth it. Most people are there to see the sites just like you...and drive accordingly...watch out for the motorcycles...for them it is...More

Lovely snow capped mountains in May and yet still 25 degrees. Just Devine. Would say this area is a must see if you are in Salzburg. We certainly loved our whole time here in the villages and towns. Salt mines nearby is excellent. See other...More

We didn’t choose the best day to visit the Rossfeld Panoramastrasse. It was heavy clouds and on the verge of raining. There is a €8 toll for cars to drive this route so makes sense to go on a clear day so you can make...More

We were staying in Berchtesgaden and so the start of the drive was only 15-20 minutes away. Obviously, it depends on how long you spend out of the car. The drive itself would only be an hour or so. It depends a lot on the... More
