One of the absolute most striking pictures on the Grossglockner Road is Heiligenblut, the sharp steeple of its holy church surrounded by the glaciated summit of Grossglockner. The town's allwing view and conveniently reached mountains pulls in skiers, climbers and passionate phtographers. The small centre is stacked with wooden chalets and, regardless of an over-burdening kitsch mementos, it holds some customary appeal.

With its clean air and magnificent crests ascending out of enormous interwoven valleys, Semmering is a prominent alpine resort for the Viennese, particularly among the  seasoned crouds which sets in for serene walks or to travel in  awe-inspiring railways; a more youthful set hits the ski pistes. There's no centre of the resort as such, its basically ran along Hochstrasse, which forms a semi-circle  behind the railway station.

Bad Gastein

Profoundly some place in the middle of Brighton and St Moritz, Bad Gastein runs hot and icy, with curative spas year-round and premier skiing in winter. Despite the fact that the moist is ascending in places, the resort has kept an essence of its nineteenth century prime, when Empress Elisabeth came to bathe and wrote poetry here. Also, the scenery is immortal, belle-epoque manors stick to woodland shrouded bluffs that ascent above vibrant falls and springs still hailed for their magical therapeutic characteristics.
