Conquering the Gerlos by motorbike

Triumphant ride across six mountain passes

Unhindered scenic enjoyment with six mountain passes including crossing the Grossglockner High Alpine Road – the Gerlosrunde is quite a handful! Around 420 km and an approximate riding time of eight hours promise astonishing panoramas with gorgeous clear views and mostly good road conditions for biking fulfilment. Conquer the Gerlos by motorbike – let’s go!


Going to the Gerlos mountain pass

This particularly beautiful motorbike tour starts at the Grossglockner and leads through the Fuscher Tal and the Pinzgauer Saalachtal to Tyrol crossing the attractive Pass Thurn. The round trip in St. Johann in Tirol leads back to Salzburg, with the Griessenpass, Pass Luftenstein and Pass Strub serving as highlights with astonishing views. Arriving back in St. Johann, you can tackle the Brixener Tal going to Wörgl. Turn into the Zillertal after Strass. Please note that the slightly narrower Zillertaler Höhenstrasse requires experience of biking in the mountains! Without a doubt, the Gerlos Alpine Road with eleven divine kilometres is the highlight of this tour before going back to the Grossglockner pass via Mittersill and Bruck.
