Beautiful and long climb with fewer hairpin bends but wonderful views (see photos). After climbing Grossglockner from Fusch and it was very tough - some parts are seriously steep!

Beautiful and long climb with fewer hairpin bends but wonderful views (see photos).
After climbing Grossglockner from Fusch and it was very tough - some parts are seriously steep!
In the middle of the climb there is a descent (2.5km!), then you come to the final part of the climb where a lot of traffic passes you.
At the top, there is an observation platform with a lot of people.
The views on the glacier and the Grossglockner are really great from here!
You also get a lot of appreciation from the many tourists who arrived by car/motorbike.
PS be sure to stop at the signs with marmots because there is a very good chance that you will see some!

Prachtige en lange klim met minder haarspeldbochten maar wel prachtige uitzichten (zie foto's).
Na beklimming Grossglockner vanuit Fusch gereden en het was zeer zwaar - sommige stukken zijn serieus steil!
Middenweg de klim is er een afdaling (2,5km!) , nadien kom je in het finale stuk van de klim waar erg veel verkeer je passeert.
Op de top bevindt zich een observatieplatform waar erg veel volk aanwezig was.
De uitzichten op de gletsjer en de Grossglockner zijn van hieruit wel echt geweldig!
Verder krijg je veel waardering van de vele toeristen die per auto/motor ter plaatse zijn geraakt.
PS stop zeker even bij de bordjes met marmotten want de kans is zeer groot dat je er enkele treft!
