  • The Grossglockner High Alpine road itself has some something pathetic and it seems a must that you went at least once in there life. In previous years, gazed proudly the bonding badge on some cars and spread interest, that there even should be. This happened to us as well. We paid the toll bravely and drove the many curves of the spring in the Valley Visitor Center up to the still wintery Großglockner. Not only the local views, but also the sanierungsbedürften Park houses suspected to adventurous. Some were so noisy construction machinery in use. Overlooking the glacier to the mountains could not over it fool in spite of remaining snow that also here the glacier powerful have been reduced. The other ride through the high snow walls down in the Green Valley were abstract. Many cyclists torment the road itself despite icy winds up and down. Apparently must you have mastered really just once this road in life, be it by car, motorcycle or just with the bike.

  • Wonderful mountain scenery - unique impressions. Endpoint of the Großglockner High Alpine road is the Emperor Franz-Josefs-at - with a little luck, one observes the marmots and ibex from close - simply beautiful.

  • Super Hot pass road. Should you but not drive too fast, because otherwise next to curves fun fantastic views of the Glockner and especially the Pasterze is. From 1000 h, because otherwise the traffic very bothering.
