Today from Czech to Austria and Germany
Starting early in
Nice eastern Czech landscapes and hills to drive up and down until reaching Austria and Vienna. We were passing Vienna from the north. Mainly using the A1 highway. It´s in very good condition and
Later we turned away from A1 just because of landscapes. Main highways are
Passing small Austrian villages and driving along the river Danube we took a direction to Salzburg, but again using smaller regional roads. When arriving in a small lakeside town Gmunden we decided to stop for a while and have a small break. Gmunden is located next to Traunsee lake.
After a short break and visit shop to get more water we continued driving on road 145 to the south to Bad Ischl. Then roads 166 and 162 to west. Finally upwards to Salzburg. We were lucky because there was a huge traffic jam close to Salzburg but in another direction. I was actually thinking to visit Berchtesgaden but it started to be a bit late for that. Maybe next time. “Eagle nest” would be great to visit. But everything in one trip cannot be done or visited.
Passing Salzburg Continuing to Germany. Finally, I had a chance to push the pedal to the metal – almost, and for a short time. Alfa Romeo 159 Ti is fantastic to drive even 200 km/h.

But eventually, the traffic flow started to be too big for keeping such a speed. Safety overall, of course.
We have earlier visited most of famous ski jumping venues. Now I wanted to stay overnight in Garmisch Partenkirchen. I did not book anything in advance because we did not have any specific timetable to go. Maybe
But it was good to drive close to highest peaks of Germany. Zugspitze was just next to us. 2962m, the highest peak in Germany. I do like
After some mountain
Tomorrow it will be time for The Neuschwanstein castle…
