    In the Alpine region, the Großglockner High Alpine Road is certainly the most impressive. A constant increase of 10% over 1,300 vertical meters directs the ambitious friend of 2 tires on the highest mountain in Austria. Since you make many meters in a short time, a warm windbreaker is highly recommended. Also in the summer. One of the most exciting passes worldwide.

    Still quite pleasant to ride on the racing or mountain bike. With a lot of luggage it became extremely demanding!

    One of the most beautiful mountain roads I know. Who does not shy away from the increase, will be rewarded with a magnificent view.

    Of course, the high alpine road does NOT lead to the Gross Glockner. But you can pretty much turn in the middle on the glacier road and then up to the glacier tongue from the Glockner, up to the magnificent Kaiser Franz Josefs height.

    Get up early and drive in the dark with a lamp is announced to avoid traffic. Otherwise it makes little fun and stinks. The road itself is one of the most beautiful mountain roads in the world.

    Driven early in the morning on Mondays, light traffic until 10:00 am, calm and fresh from the fresh snow. Road was in great condition. Runs great with a fairly constant slope 10-12%.
    Again and again 😊

    Must be driven as a cyclist. Unfortunately a lot of traffic, but you have to hide it. Had great weather and no wind ...
