Driving up from Villach to the Roßtrattenhütte either via bike or by car is in both cases a very special adventure. At several locations are great viewpoints that present the interested viewer an awesome panorama. Then one could enjoy a Brettljausn and some drinks in Roßtrattenhütte or Aichingerhütte or - for the motivated mountaineers - make a walk (good shoes... More

One of the best Natural Parks in Austria to visit Super views. Museum . Take a tour of the dam. See the local animals and birds. Climbing a mountain if you up to it. Walk into a glacier

16 km pay road leading out of Villach and after a nice drive arriving at 1800 meters. Restaurant at parking lot is small but has character. Apfelstrudel was very good. From here many hikes are possible. The peak is about a 90 min hike up a moderate incline. Bring a windbreaker.

As we had obtained again "Kaernten Cards", we could not leave out another drive up the Villacher Alpenstrasse. It is an interesting drive up the mountain, with 11 parking spots to enjoy special views. On Parking 11 at the end of the road you can visit the restaurant "Rosstratten" or continue by foot into the Dobratch Nature Park, but somewhat... More

Sucks to pay a toll to ride a road but it was well worth it. The road was smooth, the turns were plenty, and the scenery was great.

16.50euro to drive up the alpenstrasse road which is scenic I agree, but there are so many more scenic drives around the Julian Alps for which you do not need to pay any extra money. Usually money is paid for the use of cable cars, but if I am using my own car and petrol, well come on then why... More

Scenic landscapes and parkings to enjoy them, clear signs. Unfortunately you have to pay to take that road, and it's closed in winter.

We enjoyed very much this road. The weather was clear and later on clouds came and it was so beautiful. We stopped not in all the parkings but it may be an option if you have the whole day. Alpen garden is great for plants and insects lovers. It although costs a small fee. The views were great, the air... More
