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 !)

From the settlement Ferleiten ( 3775 ft) 14 km enduring 12 % to Fuschertörl ( this a gap, height 8036 ft). Hotel. From there 2 km to Edelweißspitze , enduring 14 %. Hotel.

Downhill like uphill. Be early to avoid the touristic car and bus traffic. For downhill warm clothing necessary.

From Edelweißspitze you have a magnificent view to Großglockner.
