Narrow turns, glorious views and a feeling of freedom – all that awaits you on the road. That is, if you decide on a motorcycle holiday in the province of Salzburg. The Hochkönig region in particular is a paradise for anyone with petrol in their veins who likes to put the pedal to the metal and tour on their motorcycle.
And the holiday apartments at AlpenParks Hotel & Apartment score with their ideal location. From there, the 2,941-m-high Hochkönig can be circled and marvelled at from every possible angle. Many other gorgeous destinations such as Steinernes Meer, Berchtesgaden National Park with the Königssee lake, Zell am See, Hallstatt, the Dachstein, Bad Ischl, Gmunden, Kitzbühel, and the city of Salzburg are within reach on bike. A handful of nearby panoramic roads winding through the Alps promise that special adrenaline rush combined with breathtaking views.
The highest-altitude and best-known panoramic road in Austria is the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. Opened in 1935, it continues to fascinate all ages, especially bikers spending their motorcycle holiday in the province of Salzburg. They can look forward to 48 km of extraordinary motorbiking, taking you and your bike to particularly dizzying heights; the tallest point you can reach is at 2,504 m. All along the way, the imposing Grossglockner comes into view time and time again. Immerse yourself in the unique nature of the Hohe Tauern National Park and feel weightless between the turns.
Those who conquer the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, open from May to early November, should plan for stops along the way to fully absorb the experience. There are also exhibitions, museums and info points along the route to encourage closer engagement with the alpine world. Huts and mountain inns will tempt you with their regional delights, providing the necessary energy for the mighty ride through the mountains.
