Winding Alpine passes and enthralling panoramic vistas, all in the new Audi R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro, leaving no scope for any doubt. Welcome to our Tyrol Alpine tour.
Experience the impressive countryside on both the Austrian and Italian sides, and master the awe-inspiring hairpin bends with a sports car that turns every bend and every ascent into an experience. From Munich Airport you set off in the new Audi R8 Spyder through the Alpine upland to Lermoos. During lunch in the Hotel MOHR Life Resort you will enjoy not only the culinary delicacies but also the impressive views of the Zugspitze.
Afterwards, the dreamlike drive through the Stubaier Alps takes you through the Kühtaisattel pass (2,017 metres) up to Kühtai, the highest skiing resort in Austria. Watch out for the odd wandering cow on this almost deserted pass! Your destination for the day takes you through Telfs-Buchen to the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol, which is where you will be staying for the next two nights. Here you will enjoy all the comforts of a top-notch hotel and the awe-inspiring view of the Alps.
The next morning you will also find the next Alpine challenge awaiting you. Over the Timmelsjoch, the highest border crossing from Italy to Austria (2,474 metres), the route takes you to St. Leonhard. The border pass first connected the Ötz Valley with the Passeier Valley in 1919 and separates the Ötz Valley Alps from the Stubai Alps. In Southern Tyrol we will be expecting you for lunch in the Golf & Spa Resort Andreus, situated in the middle of the impressive mountain ranges of Southern Tyrol. In the afternoon you will experience other exciting stretches of road in the scintillating Tyrolean mountains as you make your way back to the Interalpen-Hotel Tyrol through the Jaufen Pass, perched at almost 2,100 metres, with its twenty hairpin bends.
Yet more of the most beautiful drives through the Alps are waiting to be discovered on day three. The Hahntennjoch awaits you as the next Alpine pass. To reach the pass situated at 1,894 metres, you need to climb almost 1,000 metres. The winding, narrow road has gradients of up to 18.9% and holds out a special treat particularly with the new Audi R8 Spyder.
The route takes you along Lake Plansee to Murnau am Staffelsee for lunch in the Alpenhof Murnau. The concluding stage back to Munich through the picturesque Alpine foothills allows you to sample once more the full potential of the new Audi R8 Spyder V10 performance quattro.
