Oh, I consider rotation an improper practice in Guess that Location.

 

As for this particular motorway tunnel, it saved a brewery and a tramway depot on the surface.  The villagers can have a glass of Feldschlößchen to celebrate.

Hints?  Much of the highway traffic is headed to Prague.

Prague helps. This is the Coschützer Tunnel just south of Dresden, Germany. Very interesting spot!

(BTW there are several places in Europe to get Feldschlößchen, the most prominent in Switzerland, nice redirect.)

That's it.  I had a lot of trouble thinking of oblique hints for this one.

 

The tunnel seems a rather amazing instance of spending lots of money to avoid upsetting any locals.  There's no topographic reason for it at all.

Ok, here's the location of a different kind of underground feature:

Gough's Cave in Cheddar Gorge, UK.

 

I saw cliffs and parking lots and immediately thought Cheddar Gorge :) Visited this way back when I was in highschool on a week long trip to the UK (staying in Bath and visiting various attractions in the area, one day we went to Wells, Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge), and then a few years ago when visiting a friend who lived in the area.

This feature stems from the same geological event as a previous entry by me in this thread.

That last hint made things a bit easier: Giants Causeway in Northern Ireland. These cliffs are made of beautiful basalt columns.

A bit zoomed out. The novel was written in the 19th century.

It kinda reminds me of the map of Treasure Island, and it kinda looks like it's on the northern hemisphere in temperate climes, but the list of islands that are said to be the inspiration for Treasure Island only lists 2 (Unst and Frida), neither of them being a match.

 

Am I thinking in the right direction?

Your thoughts are too far north. This island has a Mediterranean climate.

This island is about 4 km wide and its highest elevation is more than 600 m. The novel was written by a French author but the island is not in France.
