Travelling by car

If you want or need to avoid the tollbooth and possible traffic jams on the A10 Tauern motorway, you could take the Radtstadt exit on the A10 and drive in the direction of Obertauern on the B99. You can then return to the Tauern motorway at Rennweg am Katschberg. Please note however, that the gradient on the Katschberg is up to 15% and the road is considered difficult to drive on. Cars with trailers are not allowed to drive here. Wikipedia This option is prohibited by the authorities during the main tourist season. Please pay attention to the signs.

If you enter Slovenia through the Karawanken tunnel and leave the motorway via the first exit “Jesenice 1” (Hrušica), you do not need a vignette. After the exit, drive in the direction of Jesenice, always straight ahead (Cesta Maršala Tita, Cesta Železarjev, Cesta Borisa Kidriča) in the direction of Lesce and then to Bled.

If you come through the Ljubelj border crossing, continue to Tržič, turn right before the Petrol petrol station and left at the crossroads. After 50 m turn right again and drive towards Brezje pri Tržiču – Hudi graben – Slatna – Begunje – Lesce – Bled.

Is there a washing machine in the holiday flats?2023-02-11T17:55:30+01:00
