One of the hardest ascents in the Alps – the ride on the Großglockner high alpine road. Speed, views of the glaciers and the feeling that you are sailing across the Alps using pure muscle power, combine to form an inner flight of fancy.
The tour starts from Kufstein via Scheffau to Kitzbühel. Continue via Pass Thurn. Now descend to Mittersill, heading to Zell am See and on the flat section to Fusch. Having reached the high alpine road your muscles burn during the continuous 15% gradient. From the summit, proceed on a sharp descent into the valley and less steeply to the Iselsberg Pass, where you’ll climb 300 metres up again. Now down to Lienz in Drautal. Then, 1000 metres of climbing and 30 kilometres later you reach the Felbertauern tunnel. Use the bus shuttle service. After the descent to Mittersill, do the last climb to Pass Thurn. All you have to do now is roll down to Kitzbühel and back to Kufsteinerland.
From the Inntal motorway A12, take the Kufstein Nord exit.
