The most beautiful experience in Tyrol

Kaunertal Scenic Road

A unique mountain landscape is hidden in the rear Kaunertal valley, which presents its visitors with a constantly changing natural spectacle. Your way there leads along the Kaunertal scenic road, which has been embedded into its surroundings with great sensitivity and respect for the natural terrain. Like a meandering ribbon, it winds its way from the valley floor up to the glacier centre at 2,750 m above sea level.
