On a sunny 1st September we drove up from Hippach. A monster of a climb, but very worthwhile. Because the Zillertaler Höhenstrasse is not a through road - you pay toll to get on it and it only goes up for tourism - there is little traffic. There is some local traffic for the villages on the mountainside and some cars and an occasional bus with tourists, but generally you cycle in silence on a good road surface. You need that, because the gradients hurt so much that you don't want to be busy with anyone else. I don't recognize the 9% sections in the picture above; except for a short relatively flat section in the middle, my Garmin didn't indicate anywhere below 10%. 11% to 12% is the standard, with an occasional short burst towards 15%. If you have an eye for it, the views are fantastic and once you've reached the top, the Zillertal Höhenstrasse itself (although with poorer tarmac) is also well worth the effort.

Op een zonnige 1 september vanuit Hippach omhoog gereden. Een monster van een klim, maar zeer de moeite waard. Omdat de Zillertaler Höhenstrasse geen doorgaande weg is - je betaalt tol om er met de auto op te mogen en gaat alleen voor toerisme omhoog - is er weinig verkeer. Er is wat bestemmingsverkeer voor de dorpjes op de bergflank en wat auto's en een enkele bus met toeristen, maar over het algemeen fiets je in stilte over een goed wegdek omhoog. Dat heb je ook nodig, want de stijgingspercentages doen zoveel pijn dat je met niemand anders bezig wil zijn. De 9%-stukken op bovenstaande plaatje herken ik niet; op een kort relatief vlak stukje in het midden na, gaf mijn Garmin nergens onder de 10% aan. 11% à 12% is de standaard, met een enkele korte uitschieter richting de 15%. Als je er oog voor hebt/kan opbrengen, zijn de uitzichten fantastisch en een maal boven gekomen is de Zillertaler Höhenstrasse zelf (hoewel met slechter asfalt) ook zeer de moeite waard.

Very steep climb. Breathtakingly beautiful landscape. Perfect road surface. I would only recommend this one in dry weather. Descent is the icing on the cake

Zeer pittige klim. Adembenemend mooi landschap. Perfect wegdek. Enkel bij droog weer zou ik, deze aanraden. Afdaling is de kers op de taart
