The Grossglockner High Alpine Road would like to make travellers an offer to use the Grossglockner High Alpine Road as an exciting alternative route with a special price during the A10 tunnel renovation (one lane only).
This route applies …

… only when your accommodation booking is confirmed in neighbouring regions in Carinthia, East Tyrol and Salzburg
… not in July and August (details below), only during periods when the A10 tunnel is being upgraded and is down to single lane traffic.

Outline of the A10 alternative route

Due to tunnel refurbishment work on the A10 Tauernautobahn, during periods the A10 is down to single lane traffic, the Grossglockner High Alpine Road is available at a special discounted rate  (€ 33.00 for cars instead of € 43.00 and € 26.50 for motorcycles instead of € 33.00), as an experience-rich and congestion-free alternative variant for your route to enjoy your holiday in Carinthia, East Tyrol or Salzburg (proof of accommodation confirmation required).
