Austrian Adventure

From lush forests and grand castles to alpine peaks, turquoise lakes and the storybook town of Salzburg, Austria has much to offer the automotive traveller. Take a drive through the country’s striking landscapes and cultural hotspots all while making the most of some truly great driving roads.

The itinerary

  • Day Day 1: Munich

    Accommodation: 5-Star Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski, Munich

    Arrive in Munich and check in to the sleek prestigious Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski. Wander the charming pedestrian boulevards of Marienplatz and Stachus, or enjoy the classic bars and restaurants of the hotel.


  • Day Day 2: Munich to Salzburg via Chiemsee and the Eagle’s Nest

    Accommodation: 5 Star Hotel Sacher Salzburg, Salzburg

    After we hand you the keys to your chosen performance machine, get familiar with the open sections of German autobahn you’ve heard so much about. Take a break at the serene Lake Chiemsee and admire King Ludwig’s eccentric Herrenchiemsee castle complex, before motoring along the German Alpine Road to Berchtesgaden and the infamous Eagle’s nest.

    In the afternoon you’ll drive one Germany’s most scenic roads, the Rossfeld Panoramastrasse, before arriving in Salzburg, the home of Mozart. Check in to the Sacher Hotel and wander the cobblestoned streets and alleys of the enchanting old town under the watchful gaze of the near 1000-year-old Hohensalzburg Fortress. 

  • Day Day 3: Salzburg 'loop' via Hallstatt, Gosausee, and St Gilgen

    Accommodation: 5 Star Hotel Sacher Salzburg, Salzburg

    Waking in Salzburg, today you have the option of driving what we call the ‘Salzkammergut loop’. The 3 hour drive takes in some of the region’s most scenic alpine lakes, along with the village of Hallstatt. Here you can explore the old town square and wander the lakeside before riding the cable car to the Hallstatt Skywalk to admire the UNESCO World Heritage listed view.

    However, if you prefer to further enjoy the many sights and attractions of Salzburg, you can skip the drive and spend the day in the old town alongside The Sacher. Our advice would be to do both!

  • Day Day 4: Salzburg to Worthersee via Nockalmstrasse

    Accommodation: 5 Star schloss Seefels, Worthersee

    Leaving The Sacher, the route takes you south through the peaks and forests of the Radstädter Tauern mountain range and on to the Obertauern waterfall. A little further down the road, you’ll break for lunch at the restored Mautendorf castle overlooking it’s namesake village.

    Leaving Mautendorf the route continues  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.

    Your driving day ends when you pull into the luxurious 5star Schloss Seefels Hotel, overlooking the distant Slovenian Alps from the shores of Lake Worth. 

  • Day Day 5: Worthersee to Kitzbuhel via Grossglockner High Alpine Road

    Accommodation: 4-star Kitzhof Moutain Design Resort, Kitzbühel

    Today begins on the shores of Lake Worth, from which you make your way crosscountry to the delightful village of Heiligenblut. Soak up the view across the valley while sipping a coffee before taking the short drive to the famous Grossglockner High Alpine Road. This exceptional, purpose-built road is flawlessly maintained and passes numerous cafés, restaurants and lookout sidings, giving you ample opportunity to gaze out at the highest peaks in Austria.

    After experiencing Grossglockner, you’ll have undoubtedly worked up an appetite. There’s no better place to relax than the upscale ski resort town of Kitzbuhel. Check into the Kithof Mountain Design Resort – the quintessential Tyrolean spa hoteland the night is yours, along with Kitzbuhel’s dazzling array of dining, dessert and bar options.

  • Day Day 6: Kitzbühel to Munich via Walchsee

    Accommodation: 5 Star Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski, Munich

    After the glitz and glamour of Kitzbühel, enjoy a change of pace by  winding your way through the picturesque alpine villages of Kirchdorf and Erpfendorf. Nestled in a quiet corner of Austria between the snow-capped peaks of the Kitzbühel and Kelchsau Alps, this road leads you to the idyllic alpine lake of Walchsee

    From here it’s a short drive to the medieval town of Kufstein, where you can take the time to explore the town’s historic centre, imposing fortress and the Römerhofgasse: a unique, reconstructed medieval laneway

    After breaking for lunch in Kufstein, the tour continues across the border into Bavarian Germany. Drive through the alpine village of Oberaudorf before the road intersects with the Autobahn, and enjoy one last chance to stretch the legs of your steed on the run back to the Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski, in the heart of Munich. 

  • Day Day 7: Munich

    In the morning, one of our team will meet you to pick up the keys and return your car. The rest of the morning is yours. Indulge in the hotel’s facilities or get out and see more of the many delights Munich has to offer, such as Nymphenburg Palace, the towering Frauenkirche or the rollicking Hofbrauhaus Beer Hall.
