The driving experience

Villach Alpine Road: motors & tyres

Adventure trail for car drivers, motorcyclists, bus travellers and cyclists

We have the pioneering spirit of the 1950 to thank for the various unique pass and mountain roads in Austria’s Alps, allowing everyone to enjoy the gorgeous mountains and beautiful views. The Villach Alpine Road leading from Villach-Möltschach to the Dobratsch is one of these premium mountain roads. The 16.5 km mountain route is suitable for enjoyable driving on two or four wheels with rest spots and lookout points constantly inviting visitors to stop and rest. Brief walks or a summit hike up to the Dobratsch additionally brighten up the drive, while the rest stop options along the alpine road promise culinary diversity.

Vintage cars, convertibles and bikes: enjoyable drive up to the Dobratsch

If you own a pre-war or a vintage car dating back to the construction of the road up to the Dobratsch, of if you would like to enjoy the head wind in an open car or have given in to the fascination of riding through turns with your motorbike, then you’re right at home on the Villach Alpine Road. It’s not about driving fast – enjoyment is at the priority. New, fascinating views of the Villacher Becken, the Julian Alps or the Karawanks are waiting behind every turn and bend. Cover the route up to the Rosstratte at an altitude of 1,732 m in a rhythmic and casual manner – and driving back to the valleys is at least as exciting.

Yes, I’d like to find out more about a vintage car trip in Carinthia!
