Grossglockner, Austria


Grossglockner is the highest mountain in Austria (3,798m). The famous alpine road of Grossglockner leads you into the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park. It is really a paradise for motorcycles with its 48 kilometres high alpine road including 36 bends and an altitude ascent to 2,504 metres. You pass through a unique world of mountains with alpine meadows, massive cliffs and eternal ice to the foot of the Grossglockner, the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe. From this viewpoint you can see the huge glacier of Grossglockner, the Pasterze.
