    Since I had business in Salzburg last week, I stayed there for the weekend. On Saturday I made a photo safari through the city and was then with the bike on the Gaisberg and afterwards at a lake to cool down. On Sunday I drove on country roads up to the Großglockner and took advantage of the perfect weather. Then I continued to the Maltatal with the Kölnbreinsperre, where I rode another time in alpine terrain. After a leisurely lunch, it was then on to home. Unfortunately, almost all interesting mountain roads are subject to tolls here in Austria. Großglockner: €28, Kölnbreinsperre: €14.- Attention! The road up to the dam is regulated by traffic lights, as there are several single-lane tunnels to pass. There come up to 26 minutes waiting time in each direction together, if there is much traffic! After finally 11 hours and 10 minutes travel time and 552 kilometers I arrived at home.

    Been to Großglockner many times, the pictures don't do it justice. And to be clear, great pictures too. y154.gif
