The Mountain calls! An Absolute Must for Bikers – the Most Beautiful Tour in Austria.

You start from the luxury hotel Vötter’s Sportkristall on the old Kapruner Straße past the castle in the direction of Bruck. On long curves it goes in the direction of Fusch to the Großglockner toll station “Ferleiten” with its well-known wildlife park. A short stay is worthwhile.

After the toll booth (you can get discounted biker toll tickets at the reception) you drive in the direction of Fuscher Törl , to the Edelweißspitze at 2,572 m with a panoramic terrace and a wonderful view of our Alps (don’t forget the photo!). The next stop is the Kaiser Franz Joseph’s height at 2,369 m above sea level. There you have the opportunity to visit “The highest automobile exhibition in the world”. The well-known Biker’s Point is another highlight on the most beautiful tour in Austria – a short stop is an absolute must!

Then it goes down the wonderfully winding road towards Heiligenblut , the well-known place of pilgrimage. Here you are faced with the decision to drive back to Kaprun via Bruck and Zell am See – or continue in the direction of Lienz , via the Felbertauerstraße and through the Felbertauern tunnel (note there is a combined toll) to Mittersill, Uttendorf and Niedernsill back to Kaprun.
