I'm planning family vacation in Aug 2014, will be driving from Munich (airport) through Austrian Alps towards Mestre for Venice. We will stay overnight at Heiligenblut enjoying the famous Grossglocker apline road, then the next day will be heading to Mestre.
Need an advise of road planning...
We will be 5 persons, (3 kids of ages 5 to 12), so no very long continuous runs can be considered (neither desired).
For the first part, I to think of Zell am See lake as an intermediate stop towards Grossglockner (approx. 2-2.5 hours of drive from Munich airport), then after some rest will continue to Heiligenblut.
Now, what do you suggest for the part of Heiligenblut-Mestre ? Are there any prominent landmarks to stop over or pass by to see ? (mostly nature) What roads are worth to hit ?
It appears there is something like 4 hours of continuous drive to Mestre, which means to be done by two runs of 2 hours each with an intermediate stop somewhere in the middle. Where do you suggest to stop ?
Also, I'd be glad to see a suggesttions to stop over for a good family meal perhaps @ Zell am See and en-route to Mestre...
Thanks a lot
