The Mulholland Drive | Drive over the road of darkness!

border=0

A nice route and a great view!

When we visit our family in Los Angeles, we travel a lot by car. We just love to drive through the beautiful nature and enjoy the beautiful views.

Of course we also drive every now and then over Mulholland Drive, which is considered one of the most beautiful streets in Los Angeles. It runs two lanes and very winding in the hills of the Santa Monica Mountains, leading from Hollywood to Malibu and offers breathtaking and unforgettable views at any time of the day.

The view is really sensational and there are many places where you can stop to take pictures. But no matter where you stop, the views of Los Angeles or the San Fernado Valley are truly gorgeous and memorable.

The Mulholland Drive was also famous for the film of the same name with Naomi Watts!

The great location in the area of ​​Mulholland Drive is also home to many famous stars. You can book a tour through residential areas as well as in Hollywood, where many famous stars like Jack Nicholson, Madonna or Justin Timberlake   have their dream villas . We prefer to drive ourselves and look, for example, the homes of Demi Moore, Sylvester Stallone, Paris Hilton or Mike Tyson and many more.

Because of its many tight bends or hairpin turns, the Mullholland Drive is on the list of the most dangerous roads in America.

The fantastic weather, the breathtaking scenery through which this road meanders and the challenging curves attract many car and motorcyclists. Some underestimate the road and drive at high speed, through the demanding turns, which often leads to accidents.

It is recommended to experience the Mulholland Drive at sunset and to take photos at one of the many stops when the sea of ​​lights of Los Angeles slowly spreads overwhelming.

But be careful to keep at the viewpoints is forbidden from dusk!

If you've never ridden Mulholland Drive before, you should definitely put it on your list of attractions.
Whether during the day or at night, it is always a special experience to drive along this picturesque street.

Especially at night, the view of the glittering metropolis of Los Angeles can be a special experience.

  • Wow that looks really gorgeous. Especially the view over Los Angeles at night is really nice. At night, I think cities look very different again and such shots with the many lights are especially great. But even during the day looks against great and I understand that there so many celebrities have built their villas.

  • Actually, I know the Mulholland Drive even from the film of the same name - that is also a real classic 🙂
    very cool that you introduce him here - it has something completely different than in the movie ... I can definitely understand that so many people want to settle there 🙂

    Best regards too,

    • For people who have the money for it, it is the ideal place. Heidi Klumm also has a residence there, who knows where it is beautiful.

  • Hello Sigrid,
    I have already seen the track in some movies. The motorcycles race around the corners. The perfect scene for every action movie. Real great contribution 🙂

    • Thank you Linni,
      In four weeks I will go back through the bends there. But of course very slowly by car.

    • That's right in some movies you can see the Mulholland Drive. Unfortunately, many people drive there too fast, which leads to bad accidents.

  • Dear Sigrid,

    your contributions are always so great and the pictures always invite me to jump straight into the next plane. The Mulholland drive would be something for my dad. He loves to drive such curves. I would drive them too, but certainly at a snail's pace, because I want to absorb the view in myself.

    Best regards,

    • A dream for every motorcyclist, but also very dangerous. There are many accidents on this road.

  • What beautiful pictures! Thank you for your insight on Mulholland Drive. I can already imagine that one gets a bit cocky, especially with the bike on this track. But even if you draw attention to it, some never learn it unfortunately.

    All the best,
    Julia

    • There you are right Julia, it is very dangerous, because you can nicut overlook the curves nicut.

  • Really an interesting contribution! I think it's cool to see the stars' mansions!
    I would never have thought that the road could be so dangerous! Looks on pictures never so bad, I think.

    • There are a lot of confusing bends on this road and many do not follow the overtaking ban.

  • Hello Sigrid.
    Why is it not possible to stay at the viewpoints from dawn?

    Why and for what is my data stored with you?
    LG, Nati

    • Hello Nati,
      The viewpoints are closed because it is very dangerous at night. It is a serpentine road with many abysses.
      Whenever I write you a comment, my data will be stored with you as well, which is always the case with every blog. From 17 May there is the new data protection law and from then everyone must have this privacy notice in his blog, otherwise there may be warnings that are not cheap.

  • This is really a great view! I would like it too - what a beautiful nature!

    • It's just amazing and I'm looking forward to the May. Then I will go there very often.
