With the roadbike to the Großglockner
Every roadbiker treams about it - come ans start today
You are a real roadbiker? So you do have to climb the Großglockner High Alpine road once in a lifetime. At the Fuscher Törl of 2.430 meters is the finish of the "Glockner King", the yearly roadbike event in the region. The Hotel Lampenhäusl is located right next to the famous alpine road and you can start right away!
The way to the Großglockner
We start literally "inside" the hote. The Lampenhäusl is located right next to the famous Großglockner High Alpine Road. After a delicious breakfast we start. At the beginning, the route is good to get warm - after the, you better be warm. The road gets steeper and there are "a couple" of vertical meters ahead of us.
Turn after turn we are riding towards the top. The higher we get, the more impressive the views into the Hohe Tauern become. Wiesbachhorn, Hohe Dock and some more famous names watch us on our way to the mountains. At the Fuschertörl we have the choice. We can climb up the Edelweißspitze, where we will have the first view to the Großglockner or we can keep on riding towards the Hochtor and cross the border to Carinthia. We could even ride down the Carinthian side towards Heiligenblut or watch the Großglockner and its glaciers from the Franz-Josef-Höhe.

A TIPP from Heli:
The tour to the Großglockner is a classic. If you have the power, you really should do that. If you do not want to do all the kilometers and vertical meters, take an e-bike - it is much easier than. We are happy to help you with the organisation of an e-bike.
As soon as you arrive at the Fuschertörl, you'll have all sorts of opportunities. Keep on riding to the Hochtor or the Franz-Josef-Höhe. The views to the mountains and the the Pasterzen-glacier are not just amazing, they are famous too. Or you keep on riding towards Heiligenblut. We can organize shuttle-busses, which bring you back to the Hochtor.
Real experts expand their trip to the Carinthian side or to Osttirol and take the Felbertauern-road back to Salzburg. In this case, your tour will be much longer and you will be looking forward to the Hotel Lampenhäusl and the hot sauna.
Cu on tour - we look forward to your visit!
