Experience the myth of the Grossglockner High Alpine Road
We start early in the morning by shuttlebus and a bike trailer in the direction of Pinzgau, in the beautiful Salzburgerland. After about one and a half hours we reach the starting point of this beautiful day tour. In Ferleiten (1,145 m) we swing comfortably into the saddle of our e-bikes and climb step by step the "Glocknerkönig route". With every curve of the high alpine road, a fantastic view of hundreds of mountain peaks of the Hohe Tauern opens up to us, which is only surpassed by Austria's majesty - the Großglockner.
Again and again we consciously take time to pause, take photos and enjoy this ride with all our senses. After 12.9 km and 1,283 hm we reach the main destination Fuscher Törl at 2,428 m, where we take a break. Our further route takes us to the Edelweißspitze (2,521 m), where we are rewarded with a view of over 300 three-thousand-meter peaks. Our final destination is the Hochtor at 2,503 m before we turn our attention to the descent. At a moderate, safe pace, we wind our way downhill again, turn by turn, to Ferleiten. With sensational impressions in our luggage we start the return journey with our shuttle to Ellmau.
