Gerlos Alpine Road

Scenic Drive in Zell am Ziller

Open year-round, the highly scenic Gerlos Alpine Rd links the Zillertal in Tyrol to Krimml in Salzburgerland, winding 12km through high moor and spruce forest, and reaching a maximum elevation of 1630m. The lookout above the turquoise Stausee (reservoir) is a great picnic stop, with a tremendous vista of the Alps. On the approach to Krimml near Schönmoosalm, there are bird's-eye views of the Krimml Falls.
