This short mountain pass is undeniably one of the most scenic routes of the Austrian Alps. Silvretta Hochalpenstrasse includes 32 hairpin turns and offers magnificent panoramas of high mountain peaks, glaciers and dam lakes.

Start your road trip in Partenen and drive up to the Silvrettasee, a jaw-dropping reservoir dam at 2000 m. This turquoise lake is bordered by three impressing dams which you can walk across for more breathtaking views. Due to the freezing temperature a refreshing dive in the lake is not recommended, however, plenty of other fun activities are offered. Cruise around in the lake on a tour boat, set out on a short hiking trip or have a taste of a Tyroler dish in the restaurant on the bank of the lake before continuing your trip.

Please note: this route is generally only open between the end of May and the end of October. Moreover, a toll is assessed for this route.
