I'm taking the MH skiing in March - down through Germany and into Austria on B305/B21 to B178 at Melleck, then to Grubhof in St Martin b Lofer.
Then plan to go to Colfosco in Italy probably via Zell-am See and Lienz via 107 & 100 and into Italy via Cortina.

Question - Will I need a GO box? As far as I can tell, the answer is "no". There are no autobahns along my route.

I do have snow tyres (with the little mountain and snow flake.)

I think you are right - but may depend on your weight? we use large scale map and avoid the motorways - but we are 3.5 ton so OK through any villages/towns with weight restrictions.

I'm 5 tonnes!
But I don't see how you can get to the sites without going through some towns!

Yep - good point - few years since we skied in Austria - so I think access to sites or wherever is OK - but they don't want you transiting through villages/small towns to avoid the tolls - But for sure there were lorries on the roads we used and now I am thinking possibly more 7.5 ton restrictions signs- Sure someone will give you more accurate info as we weren't over 3.5 tons I didn't pay too much attention - I do know the traffic police can be pretty hot if you go on the motorway without a vignette or Go Box -

I'll try hard to avoid motorways - as far as I can see I can! PITA to get a box just for a few miles.

I think you will be OK and right choice to avoid the Go Box - I have just searched our van in vain looking for detailed map of Austria to look at your route - Enjoy your trip

Was perfectly possible and very enjoyable to avoid the autobahn(s).
St Lofer was easily reached and then I travelled via Zel am See into Italy.
Notable that I thought diesel would be cheaper in Italy - NOT SO, far better to fill up in Austria

Thanks for the update, bladerunner.
Our van is 5 tonnes too and I've got my eye on the Parc Grubhof campsite in Lofer - looks really good for Summer/Winter camping.
Would be interested to know which route you took. We may also drive on to Italy, seeing as it's pretty close from there.

Hi J vd O
Munich to Salzburg autobahn, make sure you come off at junction 112, then B306 and B305, B178 to Lofer.
It was easy in a 5 tonne 8m Frankia. To Italy was via Kitzbuhel - again easy and enjoyable, but fill up in Austria.

I heartily recommend the Grubhof campsite - but watch your electricity usage as they charge per unit. You can either take the half hour bus to the lift station or walk the half hour along the banks of the river. It would be a lovely site Summer as well.
"Wellness centre" is a lovely end to the day but "Austrian rules" IYKWIM; so it was an unusual way to first make acquaintance with our Scottish neighbours ;-).

I'm off to Natter See in Austria in August and would also like to avoid the dreaded Go Box. Can anyone recommend a suitable route?

Natterer See - totally gorgeous site. Probably the best shower block I've ever seen. Enjoy!

I'm sure you'll find loads to do as well as getting some R & R. We took the cable car up one day which gives you stunning views of Innsbruk - incredibly they allow dogs on it too. Ours was so relaxed she fell asleep on the way down and the other passengers thought she was dead.
