Description

The “Glockner” is a highlight in life of any road cyclist. This alpine tour (2,506 m) represents the “high-point” of all Kitzbühel cycle tours.
The Glockner tour begins in Kitzbühel town. Head south on the B 161 (Pass-Thurn-Bundesstraße) to Jochberg. It then continues consistently uphill to Pass Thurn (1,276 m). After a fast descent you reach Mittersill (790 m), then head east continuing along the Tauern bike path to Zell am See and Bruck an der Glocknerstraße (758 m). Here the ascent begins. Passing Fusch you reach the Ferleiten toll gate (1,115 m). Here starts the long and difficult ascent to the Fuscher Törl (2,428 m). Maximum gradient 12 %. After numerous bends in spectacular high alpine landscape you come to the Fuscher Törl. From here, after a short descent (Fuscher Lacke 2,275 m), you have the option to continue to the Hochtor (2,506 m). The trip back follows the same route. The descent from the Fuscher Törl is wonderful thanks to the consistent downhill gradient of no more than 10 %.
