Crystal Clear Lake Tour
The Mountain Calls - an absolute must for bikers - the most beautiful tour in Austria ...
We set off from the luxury hotel Vötter’s Sportkristall in Kaprun and go via the old ‘Kaprun’ road in the direction of Bruck an der Glocknerstrasse.
Along long sweeping bends we go in the direction of Fusch, then a slight incline up to the Großglockner toll station "Ferleiten" with its well-known wildlife park - a short stop is definitely worth it - maybe a quick refreshment break before conquering the mountain.
After the toll station (you can get a reduced biker toll pass at the reception), we head off in the direction of Fuscher Törl, to the Edelweißspitze at 2,572m with a panorama terrace and the first view of our Alps. (Don’t forget to take a photo!)
After this treat, things really get going. The next stop is Kaiser Franz Josefs Höhe at a height of 2,369m - from here you will have the first opportunity to get a glimpse of the imposing Großglockner. The famous Bikers Point is another highlight on the most beautiful tour in Austria.
A short stop is an absolute must, to be able to enjoy the 27 hairpin bends and the view. Now we drive down the delightfully winding road, downhill towards Heiligenblut - the famous pilgrimage site. Now we face a decision, back to the 27 hairpin bends, Zell am See and Kaprun, - or carry on in the direction of Lienz - via Felbertrauerstrasse (and through the Felbertauern tunnel - N.B. there is a combi toll) to Mittersill, Uttendorf, Niedernsill, and Kaprun.
Arriving back at the hotel is particularly good after such a perfect tour, and the day should come to a close with a little tipple at your regular table, or on the terrace.
