Racing biking holidays in the Pinzgau region
This is the ideal base for any biking challenge between the Hohe Tauern mountains and the surrounding mountain ranges such as the Kaisergebirge, Steinernes Meer and the Hochkönig. Where in earlier times farmers carried their wares through tricky terrain on narrow paths, racing bikers nowadays enjoy good asphalt roads.

Tour paradise, the Hohe Tauern National Park
The old tracks have become a true touring paradise in the Hohe Tauern – Zeller See region. The diversity of tours speaks for itself, ranging from easy beginner rides like on the well-known Tauernradweg, through to extremely demanding tours like the one up to the Großglockner. Everyone, from beginner through to experienced rider, will find something suitable.

Racing biking in Salzburgerland: up the highest mountain in Austria
Steep, full of serpentine bends, and beautiful. That’s how the crowning tour in this region could be described, on the High Alpine Road up the Großglockner. Although there are points when you really need to grit your teeth, this adventure is not one that is reserved just for the professionals. For real competition atmosphere, buy a time-stamped ticket at the tollbooth in Ferleiten.

Racing bike holidays: on the trail of the Glockner king
The steep serpentines take you bend by bend to your destination. Just like the famous Glocknerkönig Race, the mountain stage ends at the Fuschertörl in 2.428 metres above sea level. However, the tour doesn’t have to end here for the really tough among the racing cyclists. They just carry on a bit further until they reach the Franz Josef’s Höhe. There, in more than 3.200 metres in altitude, awaits a stunning view to the peak of the Großglockner and the Pasterzen Glacier in all its glory. Taking a picture is a must before returning via a first-class downhill run along the same route back into the valley. Each year the King of the Glockner is crowned at the race of the same name, open to everyone. It starts in Bruck, and continues up to Fuscher Törl, a 27 km ride with a maximum gradient of 12% covering 1694 vertical metres.
