    The detour to Franz-Josefs Höhe above the Pasterzen glacier is a real highlight! The route is perfect to ride and the ascent at the foot of the Grossglockner over the tongue of the glacier is a great uphill ride. Even though the ice is many meters lower today than it was 25 years ago, the view has lost nothing of its fascination.

    The last forces have to be mobilized here again for this offense. You always have the goal in mind, which makes things even more difficult 🙈. But the view of the mountains is terrific.

    If you want to see the Groß-Glockner and not "just" alpine roads, you've come to the right place.

    Unfortunately this is a dead end. But if you don't drive that, you have been to the Gross-Glockner without having seen him.

    The Kaiser Franz Josef Höhe is an absolute highlight. Those who are lucky with the weather, like us, have the sight of the Großglockner in front of their eyes. An indescribable experience of nature that can hardly be described with words. You stand at an altitude of 2369 m with a view of the Pasterze, the longest glacier in the Eastern Alps
