This is one of the most popular mountainbike excursions of Middle -Europe. The Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße connects Bruck an der Großglocknerstraße ( country of Salzburg ) with Heiligenblut ( country of Carinthia.) Großglockner Hochalpenstraße is a public toll-road. ( Toll not for mountainbikers !)
