Vignette-free travel option to Lake Thiersee
If you’d like to make your journey to Thiersee without having to buy a vignette, it’s no problem – follow the main road (Bundesstrasse) to Kufstein and on to Thiersee.
The ASFINAG-Service Center has also notified us of a second option:
The toll-requirement in Austria on all motorways and high speed roads applies upon crossing the border and includes the section between Kiefersfelden to Kufstein-Süd (south). For this reason, in principle you will also be required to have a vignette for this section of road. However, the section between the Kiefersfelden border and Kufstein south will not be policed until further notice.
