Austrian Alps for short treks
I had an opportunity to visit the Austrian part of the Alps at the beginning of July 2016. The Alps are a wide trekking area and it was not easy to choose the exact location. There were mainly two attractive options for us – Dachstein or Grossglockner. We finally made the decision to visit the Grossglockner area and I have to say that we chose the right option. The whole trip took five days – two days for transport and three days of trekking. There are some tips for you below.
Transport and travel costs
We went to Austria by car – this is probably the best option for people from Czech Republic. Distance Brno-Vienna-Heiligenblut takes around 7 hours (depends on weather, car, and traffic) and we were completely exhausted after that. Your travel costs depend on distance, your car and driving skills. You will have to pay for Motorway Vignette, 10 days is enough and it costs around 9 EUR. But there are more costs waiting for you later on. If you want to visit The Grossglockner High alpine road, you have to pay 54 EUR/car/30 days. More information about National Park Hohe Tauern fees.
