Have traveled some of the most "scenic routes" in many many countries. This was by and far one of the least scenic routes I've taken. If you like to see deforestation, mining, etc., then go for it, otherwise, not worth the time. Not sure I...More

This beautiful drive reminded us of the Blue Ridge Parkway (for the Americans out there). Didn't get to drive the whole thing, and as we were there on Christmas Day, pretty much and restaurants we saw were closed. Lovely way to spend the day, though!

Go check out the forest when in Germany. See a cuckoo clock and eat some black forest cake. There is a reason this is so popular

Driving from Baden Baden to Innsbruck on a Friday morning, it would have been mad not to take this road. Simply amazing views, have the camera ready. Lots of bends, and yes there are speed limits!
