    ... is the Großglockner. The great thing is you can drive almost to the top of that fantastic mountain and look over the nice county of Carinthia with its several beautiful mountains and lakes.

    Why am I telling you this?

    Well the mountain has been a tourist hazard and many gas cars really hurt the environment and road toll etc. were put in place.
    However to encourage people to go zero emission at the very top of the road where there is a Restaurant a big cabin for your hike to the top and a nice viewing lounge, there are now Tesla Destination chargers installed.
    They even come with a recommended loading sign where you can see how much you should charge your Tesla Model and the rest will be charged when you go downhill.

    this is awesome news! I've been wondering if I could make it to the top and down again without proper charging infrastructure. I've been there at Grossglockner High Alpine Road twice already (but still with my Diesel car :( ... also waiting for my Model 3 :D). Really one of the most beautiful roads to drive in Austria. I've been wondering if I could do the same thing with the Model 3. But with this news, my question has been finally answered, yes I can :D
