Arlberg tunnel, Austria

From series “The Greatest Tunnels in the World”
Year: 1978.

The Arlberg Tunnel was driven in the Austrian Alps in 1978. Over the years the tunnel has remained one of the world’s leaders in scale and equipment. It’s Austrian longest road tunnel with a length of 10240 metres whose construction has been lasting more than four years. The tunnel has no any original design, technical equipment of high quality is its main distinctive feature.

There are more than forty cameras for traffic monitoring inside the tunnel in order to ensure maximum safety of the drivers. So exceeding speed limits or making dangerous manoeuvers on the road is just useless, it will definitely be fixed. The Arlberg tunnel is a Toll Road. It costs about 9 euros. Tolls for both directions are collected at the exits, which makes the payment process simple and convenient.

Arlberg Road Tunnel is one of the outstanding attractions of the country. It is used by over 18 million people annually. The Arlberg road tunnel and the Arlberg railway tunnel is one single complex, though the railway tunnel was built much earlier, in the late 19th century. The tunnels are interconnected by lots of cross-connections, the minimum distance between them is 150 metres. Next - Tunel De Guadarrama

Top destination around Arlberg tunnel - Ischgl

Mountain passes and depressions can be an unpleasant surprise for all tourists who visit Ischgl for the first time. They are marked on the map but it may be not easy to see them in person because many of these “hidden traps” are covered with a thick layer of snow. That being said, tourists will surely not find overcrowded ski trails and long lines of vacationers waiting for their turn near ski lifts. Are you an advanced skier? The choice of red and black ski runs is incredibly pleasant.
Ski runs on tops of hills and the plateau are the most suitable for beginners. Snowboarders will also not feel bored in Ischgl. Much to their excitement, the resort has a comfortable and modern fun park – Border’s Paradise that has a half-pipe, jumps of various difficulty levels, and elements of the trail – there are more than thirty of them.

Every guest of Ischgl can try other exciting activities besides skiing and snowboarding. For example, a sports and recreational center has appeared in the city relatively not long ago. There is also an aqua park to the service of vacationers. Fans of steam and hot temperature shouldn’t forget to check the local sauna out. This is a clean venue with modern infrastructure and comfortable steam chambers. Ischgl is also famous for its hammam.
