    Grossglockner
    4 more images

    Please, please, please don't take your car to the Grossglockner, not in the height of summer anyway.

    You'll only get in the way of us bikers that are trying to enjoy ourselves on the hairpins and mountain roads! And if you go up the "bikers nest" then don't park in the marked motorcycle spaces!

    It is a motorcyclists' paradise.

    Miles and miles of tarmac ribbon. The authorities cater for bikers and even provide free lockers to put our gear when we arrive.

    Take Postbus 610 from Zell am See

    Exploring Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse without your own car makes sense and is a lot cheaper as well, as you totally save the fee for the toll-road. There is 1-2 buses daily and all of them will have a stop of 30 minutes at Kaiser-Franz-Josef-Hoehe, so you dont see that area only by bus, but will have the chance to walk around a bit, watch the marmots, get some food etc.
    Bus 651 will take you within 2 hours and 15 minutes to F.J.Hoehe, in case that you like to take a wheel-chair or a bike with you you have to reserve for them at least 1 day in advance : Tel.+43 6542 5444-10

    *Rollstuhl-/Fahrradmitnahme 1 Werktag vorher anm., Tel.+43 6542 5444-10 (Gültig vom Mai bis Oktober); Fahrradmitnahme begrenzt möglich

    Gletscherbahn

    The Gletscherbahn is a funicular that takes you down from Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Hoehe to Pasterze-glacier. Of course you can just as well hike down to the glacier, but the path is quite steep and slippery,so the funicular makes sense for most tourists.

    Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse is a toll-road and at first sight it looks quite expensive, BUT with that fee you dont only get the toll for the road, but in fact also all of the parking-fees and entry-fees to all museums along the road to Heiligenblut.
    Some of the hotels in that area will refund that toll, when you stay for a few days
    The dayticket for cars is 28 euros / for motorbikes 18 euros the 15-day ticket for cars: 35 / 25 euros for motorbikes
    the 30day ticket for cars: 45 / 35 euros for motorbikes
    the round-ticket for cars: 32 / 24 euros for motorbikes

    Motorradhimmel Großglockner - bikers heaven

    by globetrott Updated Jul 9, 2007

    Motorradhimmel Großglockner / Biker's heaven is a new project in the aea in order to improove the facilities along Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse for motor-bikers.
    So they will find lots of garages and changing rooms or shelter-rooms for bad weather conditions. At Kaiser Franz-Josefs-Hoehe they will even find special lockers (see my 2nd picture), big enough to store their leather-overalls, the helmet and luggage etc. while taking a walk in the mountains. these lockers are free of charge, you need a 1-euro-coin that you will get back at the end.
    The bikers-day-ticket for the toll-road is 18 euros !
    25 euros for the 15-day-ticket
    35 euros for the 30-day-ticket

    parking

    Parking is free of charge everywhere along the Grossglockner-Hochalpenstrasse, even inside the ugly, giant parking-house of Kaiser-Franz Josefs-Hohe and mostly you will also find empty spaces even on a sunny day during the high season.
    The parkinghouse is restricted to vehicles with less than 2,5 tons and a hight of less than 2,90 meters, so it will even fit for smaller motorhomes. Larger cars and buses will have to park outside !

    Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse Road

    Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse Road

    Just north of Heiligenblut is the long and winding Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse Road which takes you to the highest point you will access by car at 2,362m.

    There are many car bays along the way where many a car engine has had to cool down from the exertion of driving this high and mighty road.
