Your itinerary

Day 1
Berchtesgaden

Granted, Salzburg is beautiful. But a drive through Berchtesgadener Land is even more beautiful. The transfer from Salzburg Airport to the 5-star Kempinski Hotel Berchtesgaden in the picturesque market town of Berchtesgaden is particularly attractive. In the heart of the Alps, the top-class hotel restaurant PUR creates exquisite meals from the finest produces with regional influences and is an inviting place for you to meet your fellow Porsche enthusiasts and chat in a relaxed setting. This is the perfect way to start off your journey.

Did you know...? The Restaurant PUR at the Kempinski Hotel Berchtesgaden has been awarded a Michelin star under head chef Ulrich Heimann for the twelfth time in a row. His culinary creations are based on the original flavours of local produce. He acquires his fish, meat, and dairy products exclusively from the area around Berchtesgaden.

Day 2
Berchtesgaden – Wörthersee

The unforgettable scenic roads will take you through Rossfeld and Postalm directly to the life’s work of Helmut Pfeifhofer. His private Porsche Museum is the first and only one of its kind in all of Europe and boasts a truly historic location. The first vehicles bearing the Porsche name were built here from 1944 to 1950. In 1982, the sports car-loving antiques dealer opened his exhibition, which now consists of 48 rare Porsche models. You will probably find it difficult to tear your eyes away from the historic vehicles. However, once you bid farewell to the museum, the views from the thrilling Nockalm Road will provide more than just a little comfort. A few stunning kilometres further down the road, and after the Velden descent, the famous Wörthersee lake appears. Even more famous, at least among German-speaking TV and film audiences, is the Falkensteiner Schlosshotel Velden right on the lakeshore. The cuisine at the hotel’s Schlossstern restaurant is based on the concept of slow food. Savouring the taste of Carinthia might just be the perfect way to bring your evening to a relaxing close.

Did you know...? Many films and television shows have been filmed at the Falkensteiner Schlosshotel Velden since 1952. The most famous production is without doubt the German television series ‘Ein Schloss am Wörthersee’, which was made here between 1990 and 1992. A bust of main actor Roy Black stands on the promenade today.

Day 3
Wörthersee

A new day, a new dream route. The Villach Alpine Road, filled with thrilling turns and countless zig-zag hairpin bends, leads to a unique Arcadia. At the foot of the Gail Valley, the idyllically located, crystal-clear Weißensee lake invites you to linger a while and enjoy a delicious lunch with exquisite views of the Dolomites. However, when you drive a Porsche, the journey itself is the destination, and so you soon continue along the Goldeck Panoramic Road, a true alpine delight, back to the fabulous Falkensteiner Schlosshotel Velden. Here, the team at the second hotel restaurant, the Seespitz, will have everything ready for an evening barbecue on the spacious lake terrace. In good weather, there is no better place to enjoy the stunning play of sunlight on the waves that looks straight out of a movie while delicious dishes are being prepared for you on the barbecue.

Did you know...? To mark the traditional Golf GTI meeting at Wörthersee, a special monument was established in Reifnitz in 1987: a granite GTI. A rock was imported from southern Sweden, out of which young stone carver apprentices in Wolfsburg chiselled a life-sized Golf GTI. The 25-tonne structure was then brought to Reifnitz on a special transporter. The official handover was conducted by the chairman of the VW board of management at the time, Carl Hahn.

Day 4
Wörthersee – Berchtesgaden

Your Porsche is ready and raring to go. As though it simply cannot wait to climb the Grossglockner High Alpine Road and scale the mountain at 2,504 metres above sea level. The breathtaking bends and sensational views can only be surpassed by a visit to an authentic Pinzgau farmhouse. In the restaurant located there, the Rauchkuchl, landlady Theresia Bacher personally cooks for her guests and serves the food as well, creating an extremely cosy atmosphere. Refreshed, you will continue back to the Kempinski Hotel Berchtesgaden. After a relaxing break, Restaurant Johann Grill at the hotel will do everything in its power to make sure your day ends on a truly unforgettable note.

Did you know...? The name ‘Rauchkuchl’ translates as ‘smokehouse kitchen’ or ‘open-hearth kitchen’, which means that the dishes are prepared over an open fire. A ‘Funkenhut’, or spark cover, produces the smoke that is responsible for both the name and the distinctive taste of the dishes.

Day 5
Berchtesgaden

For Porsche enthusiasts like you, time travels faster behind the wheel than anywhere else. And after 3 days of intense driving, the end is drawing near. After a hearty breakfast, it is back to Salzburg Airport, where everybody will set off to their respective homes. What remains is the memory of unique panoramic roads and first-class hospitality.

Did you know...? Men wearing buckskin lederhosen are still seen on the streets of Berchtesgaden. The manufacturing method has barely changed over centuries and is still an elaborate manual process. The ‘Säckler’ craft is mastered by only a select few. However, 2 of the exceedingly rare lederhosen crafters come from Berchtesgaden and run their workshops here. If you still have a little room in your luggage, you should consider purchasing this very special souvenir.
