    Take a lunch break overlooking Lake Hallstatt, then drive south to the town of Innerkrems and the start of Nockalm Strasse, the most scenic road in central Austria. This 35km stretch of panoramic tarmac twists and sweeps its way across the landscape of the Nockberge National Park, with stunning forest and alpine views along the way.
