A Must Do when in Austria. A very good road for riders of all abilities.
A good road surface with the carriageway wider than your average high mountain pass.
Keep an eye on the weather as it is high and not much fun in wet cloud or even snow. Yes, snow is a possibility even in summer so check the forecast.
Very popular with all forms of transport and coaches, motor homes etc are not uncommon. Not a problem on a bike as there are plenty of safe overtaking opportunities.
Take care at Bikers Point if the road surface is wet as the road is mostly a type of cobble, is steep, narrow and has a few hairpins.
At the top of The GroÃƒÅ¸glockner there is a dedicated Bike Park with equipment lockers. Just watch out for cars exiting the car park as you access the Bike Park.
Allow plenty of time as the scenery is stunning and take advantage to the free information map given at the Toll Booth to experience the h istory and culture.
