The most Impressive Roads Of The World
The Atlantic Ocean Road
This Road is in Norway and is about 8 kilometres long with 12 great bridges. I think it is the greatest street in the whole world and one day I really want to drive on it. Most people do it in the winter/fall because of the storms and big waves that make this trip a big adventure for any driver.
Chapman’s Peak Drive
This road is in South Africa and it is about 15 kilometres long with 115 turns.
The Overseas Highway
This road is in Florida and is about 205 kilometres long with 43 bridges.
The Iroha-Zaka Street
This is road is located in Japan. It is actually made of two roads. One is going up and one down. They both have 48 curves. Every curve stands for one letter in the ancient Japanese alphabet.
The “Road of Death”
This road is located in Bolivia. It is about 60 kilometres long and the most dangerous road in the world.
“One estimate is that 200 to 300 travellers were killed yearly along the road.
Because of the extreme drop-off of at least 600 meters (1,830 feet), single-lane width – most of the road no wider than 3.2 metres (10 ft) and lack of guard rails, the road is extremely dangerous. Further still, rain, fog and dust can reduce visibility. In many places the road surface is muddy, and can loosen rocks from the road.” (Taken from Wikipedia)
The Gouliang Tunnel Road
This road is located in China. It is about 1.5 kilometres long. It was build by local villagers in 1977. Many of the workers died during the construction of this street. It is called “the road that does not tolerate any mistakes”.
The Col der Turini
This road is located in France. It is made of 34 hairpins. It is a famous stage of the Monte Carlo Rally and was part of the “Tour de France” a couple of times. I drove on this street 2 times and i really enjoyed the great view and the surprisingly smooth turns.
The Stelvio Pass
This road is located in Italy and is one of the most challenging Roads in the world due to its 48 very narrow hairpins.
I was 14 years old when we drove on this road. That’s why I could not drive myself but I felt really really ill after this street and I was glad to be alive.
The Road to Hana
This road is located on Maui and is one of the most idyllic Streets of the world. With it’s 600 hairpin turns and 54 one-lane bridges, blind bends, and narrow pavement edged by cliffs it is a breathtaking Road trip.
And last but definitely not least:
The Autobahn in Germany
The Autobahn is similar to Highways all over the world. The only difference it’s that there are many parts without any speed limit. The only parts where you have speed limits are at construction areas, dangerous spots and exits.
Since I live in Germany I drove on the Autobahn many times. And I think it is very much fun to drive with about 180-200 kilometres per hour and a nice Porsche/Audi/BMW/Ferrari gets ahead of you without a problem.
These roads are just some of my favorites.
