    The highest point on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. Fantastic view but also a lot of wind. Up here, you should always be prepared for any kind of weather.

    When the weather is nice, it's a dream, unfortunately we were completely unlucky in 2011.
    2020 another try with the best weather.
    The Hochtor is the border between Carinthia and Salzburg.
    It is the second highest point, only the Edelweißspitze is higher.

    The Grossglockner High Alpine Road is a magical attraction. Was upstairs by car with my wife in 2018 and then I quickly made up my mind: I have to go up here with my racing bike. In July 2019 the time had come. Unfortunately I had foggy weather but a dry road. Visibility only got better at Fuscher Törl. As a result, I didn't have too much to do with car / motorcycle traffic. Important, very important: lighting on the bike, including the front, luminous vest with reflective material.
    At the Hochtor (2504 m) the temperature did not show 7 degrees. Departure to Heiligenblut should be made carefully. Occasionally stop so that the circulation is not stressed too much.
    Would like to repeat this trip again, but in sunny weather. Even then, put a luminous vest on the backpack, then the other road users have it easier with the visibility.

    The 311 m long summit tunnel at the Hochtor forms the highest point on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road.
    I would have liked to have ridden it this year, unfortunately it was not possible for me due to the temperatures. It will definitely be tackled next year and then a little earlier in the season when the temperature is warmer. My prescriber Helmut has communicated everything about it. There is nothing to add. Sensational up there ... so close to heaven
