A southern loop from Murau to Stadl an der Mur which can be used as part of a much longer route when travelling The Sölk Pass or heading across to Nockalmstrasse for example.
The roads are a mixture of sweeping curves and long fairly straight sections passing through a few villages along the way. Basically valley roads passing around the smaller mountains at the eastern end of the Alps.
Being the valleys you can expect farm traffic at times but generally the roads are fairly quiet. At the time writing the road surface varies considerably from very good to poor. So poor in places that I would expect remedial work to be taking place any time soon.
You should also be aware that some sections have some serious undulations which when rounding curves at speed can test your suspension somewhat.
Beautiful scenery adds to the experience.
* Stay on the L62 a bit further rather than turn off on the L63 and you can find an interesting route on small mountain roads that will take you across to teh southern end of Nockalmstrasse.
I have attached a video of the route which is cut short a little due to Bug Splatter on the camera lens.
this is a very nice road to drive and would advice everyone to do it
Beautiful Carnia route
Österrike. Landsbygd. Inga höga bergspass men otroligt vackert. Speciellt vid Traunsjön!
Kurztrip in das Mühlviertel
Very good road to Kalte Kuchl or Mariazell
Many smile on his face - you must go there and back, there and back
very nice road from Reichenau an der Rax to KalteKuchl with wonderful possibilities for swimming in the river
from Grein go UP is bether
Very nice road around Castle Forchtenstein and very nice relax park in Schwarzenbach.
Great ride between Eisenstadt and Stotzing. Little traffic.
Great road with mid-fast corners along Slovenien border and very technical end through Loiblpass.
A nice fast 1hour blast after business.
Super Strecke! An manchen Wochenenden ist mehr los als auf einer Motorradmesse. In Grein lohnt sich die Einkehr in die Konditorei Schörgi. Tolles Eis, gute Mehlspeisen und Kaffees. Ich liebe diese Strecke auch in die andere Richtung.
a 350km pure pleasure ride in an absolutely stunning countryside with all sorts of challenges for mature and experienced riders. allow yourself quite a few brakes, first because the landscape wants you to and second your concentration level and body fitness wants you to. i have been riding bikes for 22 years and this trip is on the top of my list. unforgettable indeed.
ride safe and enjoy...
Join the L705 at Sankt Gallen and enjoy a pleasant ride on an open road with nothing to catch you out. Very pleasant scenery of low mountains and woodland. Long straights & curves on a fairly good road surface with traffic a rarity. On the lats few kms of approach to Großreifling the road passes through rocky slopes and the curves tighten and become more frequent just to wake you up.
Stop at the Poststüberl for good food and drink.
Tagesrundfahrt mit Autobahn und jede menge Kurven inkl. Bikertreff Kalte Kuchl.
Excellent open medium speed curves and some straights with relatively
low volume of traffic and some opportunities to pass. Pleasant alpine surroundings, a good road for the sportier rider.
Short route through pleasant alpine landscape, flowing corners, short, easy route through pretty villages.
The Nockalmstrasse is a road built for the pleasure of riding and adding the wondeful B99 into the circuit is icing on the cake!
Beautiful section of road, we found it by chance, fast flowing, would've been better on a sports bike!
Corners , corners and corners.
Beautiful route in both directions, I recommend to try !
Experience on a drive of 35km, with numerous gentle bends, a unique high-mountain region in the heart of the largest spruce, larch and arolla pine forest in the eastern Alps.
OK thats what the leaflet says about this toll road.
Theres sections of forest that are twisty with no visibility, a couple of car parks where people wander in the roads, and cows and there mess.
But its a cracking road reaching 2042m, several cafe/restaurants, free biker safes to store you helmet.
