Famous for its steepness - "the Horn"; but at the same time it is a really great climb with wonderful views. Just at the top of the Hornspitze offer insanely beautiful views in the cloudless sky in the valleys below. A must from the stars; Generally a feasible but quite hilly beautifully winding Sträßchen that winds up there the mountain.
From my point of view - a smooth ⭐️chen recommendation and a "must-do" in the Palmares.

Berühmt berüchtigt durch seine Steigungsprozente - „das Horn“; es aber gleichzeitig ein wirklich toller Anstieg mit wunderbaren Ausblicken. Gerade ganz oben von der Hornspitze bieten sich bei wolkenfreuem Himmel wahnsinnig schöne Ausblicke in die Täler unterhalb. Ein Muss von den Sternen her; Generell ein machbarer aber recht hügeliges schön gewundenes Sträßchen dass sich da den Berg hochwindet.
Aus meiner Sicht - eine glatte ⭐️chen Empfehlung und ein „must-do“ in den Palmares.

Great climb to do. Perhaps the hardest climb you've never heard of? Steady and steep all the way up, but good surface and great views. Once you get to Alepnhaus, there is still a little way to go to get to the actual top. This last section (through a little gate) is probably the most difficult part as it's narrow, steep and a pretty poor surface.

I did the climb from the other side with the GRAVEL - Obingkogl, Reisenbergkopfl, Hornkopfl. Last 3km we via the standard route.
With gravel extra heavy (45mm profile), but enjoy. The last kilometers to the summit are incredibly tough, especially if you have a long trip on it.

Ik heb de klim gedaan vanaf de andere kant met de GRAVEL - Obingkogl, Reisenbergkopfl, Hornkopfl. Laatste 3km we via de standaard route.
Met gravel extra zwaar (45mm profiel), maar genieten. De laatste kilometers naar de top zijn ongekend zwaar, zeker als je er al een lange tocht op hebt zitten.

Heavy steep climb, but predictable: reasonably constant and good going. At most the middle part is (still) a bit harder and more erratic. And at the Alpenhaus you will most likely have to get off your bike at the barrier, especially if it is busy with hikers. Enjoy the surroundings, because it is beautiful!

Zware steile klim, die wel voorspelbaar is: redelijk constant en goed lopend. Hoogstens het middengedeelte is (nog) iets zwaarder en grilliger. En bij het Alpenhaus zal je zeer waarschijnlijk bij de slagboom wel even van de fiets moeten, zeker als het druk met wandelaars is. Geniet van de omgeving, want die is prachtig!

Insanely steep climb in a beautiful setting. It hardly gets any steeper than this. There is not a moment to recuperate, not even in hairpin bends. The parts just before the Alpenhaus and after it towards the antenna are murderous and ensure a walking pace anyway. Since this is a toll road, the traffic is limited so you can enjoy the surroundings (and the suffering on the bike). At the top you get your money's worth with a phenomenal view.

Waanzinnig steile beklimming in een prachtig decor. Steiler dan dit wordt het vrijwel nergens. Er valt geen moment te recupereren, zelfs niet in haarspeldbochten. De gedeeltes net voor het Alpenhaus en erna richting de antenne zijn moordend en zorgen hoe dan ook voor een stapvoets tempo. Aangezien dit een tolweg is, is het verkeer beperkt waardoor je extra kan genieten van de omgeving (en het afzien op de fiets). Op de top krijg je met een fenomenaal uitzicht waar je geld.

Beautiful climb, but VERY tough. The extreme percentages keep coming. The last part goes over a goat path.

Prachtige klim, maar ONGELOFELIJK zwaar. De extreme percentages blijven maar komen. Het laatste stukje gaat over een geitenpad.

Super cool climb just around the corner from us in Austria. Not very long, but very steep... Climb is well signposted with distance, % and number of turns.

Great dessert after the barrier (opens automatically)!

Super toffe beklimming bij ons om de hoek in Oostenrijk. Niet super lang, wel bizar stijl... Beklimming is goed aangegeven met afstand, % en aantal bochten.

Heerlijk toetje na de slagboom (gaat vanzelf open)!
