My wife and I are travelling with our 18 year son to Croatia in July. On the way our son has requested that we stay for a couple of nights in mountains on a site with great views. Our route currently will take us through Austria to Slovenia and then Croatia. If anyone could suggest any places to stay with great mountain views, and maybe a lake, that would help greatly, it could be either on a largish site or somewhere smaller and with or without EHU.
Thanks
Stuart

THIS campsite is just outside Innsbruck with free bus into the city which is well worth a visit. The site has a large lake, views of mountains & the Olympic ski station. The site is truly 5* beautiful facilities with full separate bathrooms in the main building. The site is quite large but spread out with shop restaurants etc but we love it and return time & time again if going via the Brenner Pass. You can deviate back up into the Dolomites easily on the way to Slovenia if it’s glorious mountain views you want of cross via the pass to Cortina.

THIS campsite is much smaller, beautiful views of the very close mountains on the pass into Italy, this is a nice way to Italy then Slovenia & Croatia via Udine. This site has a spar and also excellent facilities. Almost on a river with excellent walks or cycling, a few yards away, adjacent restaurant and the town is within walking distance.

Finally THIS campsite at Prutz is on a river with mountain views and you can catch a (free) bus but pay the toll up to the top of the adjacent glacier and see Austria, Italy & Switzerland from the top. The campsite has excellent facilities, a basic restaurant and within easy walk into the large village. This is on the road into Italy but heading down towards Venice then Slovenia.

The free busses come as part of you camping fee in Austria just in case you are wondering

We have done all these routes more than once on our way south in a 4t 8m van and can do them all toll free in Austria if desired. Hope it helps StuartB

We’ve stayed at the first one in that list. Truly a really nice place, just about the best run campsite we’ve ever been on. As mentioned a free bus into beautiful Innsbruck.

We stayed there on the way back from Croatia after crossing the Dollies, just spectacular and heaven on earth if you like MTB (easy to rent bikes up there)

If you do the non toll to Slovenia from here it will take you through some stunning roads.
It goes up to the ski resorts that still had snow in mid May.
Some big hills but it’s a nice steady drive.
Second to last photo is the Alpaca farm we stopped of at for lunch.

If I took the non toll route from Schloss Aigen to Slovenia would I cross into Slovenia via the Karawanken Tunnel?
Do you have any idea how long that would take in a MH?
Thanks Stuart

All the gear, and no idea!
The KaraWanken tunnel is toll is payable by either vignette or go box south and north vignette or Dars box👍
All depends on weight, there’s no getting on/off at the first junction to avoid it👍

We never went through any tunnels just up a very very steep hill and back down again into Slovenia.
It is a lovely drive past all the ski resorts.
Took us about 7 hours but we were not rushing and had beaks along the way.

Man, you need to remember the names of all these passes you’ve been up and down, I’d like to compare notes and it will help folk like me to determine whether to buy a Concorde next or another bike😁👍👍

Ps I don’t see a problem with that, it’s an empty road :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

It was until a big coach full of German tourists came heading towards me😬😬

Will have a look and see if I can find the name of the pass for you 👍
