The Höllental Straße ( B 27 ) runs for 38.7 km from Rohr im Gebirge in the Wiener Neustadt-Land district along the Schwarza through the Höllental to Gloggnitz in the Neunkirchen district .


The road connects the B 21  Gutensteiner Straße with the B 17  Wiener Neustädter Straße and the S 6  Semmering expressway . It begins a little south of Rohr, where the B 21 comes from the Kalte Kuchl pass . It leads through the places Schwarzau im Gebirge , Kaiserbrunn , Payerbach and Reichenau an der Rax . The new junction with the B 17 and S 6 is located a little south of Gloggnitz, partly in the Enzenreither municipality near Hart .


Today's B 27 is an old connecting route from the Mostviertel over the Kalte Kuchl to the southern industrial district . But at the end of the 18th century it was only a footpath through the Höllental, not even passable on horseback. It was not until the timber entrepreneur Georg Hubmer , the "Rax-King", that the path turned into a cart path. The road was only laid out in 1832.

On April 17, 1840, the kk  court chancellery approved the collection of a toll for the expansion of the road through the Höllental. Since July 11, 1840, the toll station in Hirschwang has demanded 10  kreuzers from every draft animal and 5 kreuzer toll from every other farm animal .

The Höllentalstraße one of the streets in Lower Austria, which have been declared by the Federal Law of 2 June 1954 federal roads. In the federal budget of 1954, 15,000,000 schillings were made available for the expansion of these roads.

Since April 1, 2002 it has been a Lower Austrian provincial road again , but like all high-ranking roads retained the B number (Landesstrasse B).
