The 25km (from Hippach to Zell am Ziller) takes 1hr but the view is awesome... all the way! At the Top (Hirschbichlalm) you reach 2,020mtrs, even if the weather is not great, it's worth the trip!!

If you like a kick drive along this street, get treated by a fantastic view, which is only for passengers in the car, the driver must keep his eyes on bends and on those who are afraid of them....

This is a small twisting road on the edge of the Zillertal that runs along just below the top of the ridge. You reach it from Reid (at the northern end) or Hippach (from the southern end); just be sure you go the whole way;...More
