    Heiligenblut

    Heiligenblut is the first village you will get to, when driving over the Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse and going to the south, to Kaernten. After the crusades some drops of the holy blood of Jesus were taken to Heiligenblut according to the ledgends, so this is where the name comes from.
    A long time before that alpine road was built a mountain-path existed for merchants and other travellers to get across that mountain-massiv. Heiligenblut used to be the last point to fill up provisions before they started, so this place is well known and important for a long time already.
    Dont miss to take a look into the pilgrim-church of Heiligenblut and to take a walk through the village with many old houses.

    Along the long and winding Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse Road there are many car bays to stop and cool your car engine and to enjoy the mind blowing scenery as it unfolds before your very eyes.

    There are dainty alpine wildflowers and even the occassional beaver if you are quick enough to spot one.

    Update 21/09/07 -
    Many thanks to globetrott for indentifying my flower photo as Enzian.

    Take a look back to Zell am See, when you are on Edelweiss-Spitze ! On a clear day you may see the scenic Zellersee, beautifully surrounded by high mountains.
