THE INFAMOUSMOUNTAIN

"It’s strange that a mountain you don’t see most of the time becomes so well known that people all over the world are familiar with its name. And by only mentioning its name, you see sparkles in the eyes of car/bike aficionados. We admit. It wasn’t until a while ago that we too found out about this road; as soon as we arrived at the bottom toll gate, we knew we were in for something special. By turn 6 we were completely in awe."

Snowed Out

"Unfortunately, on that last day of August 2010, turn 15 surprised us with early snow so we rushed down to the south gate without seeing the full road. However, there was a promise that we would be back. It took us till 2018 to return; this time we spent almost a week between the tollgates, becoming close friends with the hairpins, and all the corners in between. And in those 5 days, the Grossglockner High Alpine road etched itself into our hearts."

"The Grossglockner road counts 36 hairpins. That is what most people will remember, but the many ‘nameless’ corners in between have left a bigger mark on us than we could imagine. Like the blanks between the words in a book or the silence between the words. I was taught to read between the lines. Then you will understand. The Grossglockner Strasse proved to be all that..."
