Grossglockner High Alpine Road
The geographical location of the small community of Fusch has always been something very special, as there is an important Alpine crossing in the immediate vicinity. Fusch is therefore also the ideal starting point for excursions on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road. No matter whether you travel by car, motorbike or racing bike – a ride on the picturesque pass road is a unique and winding experience with 36 hairpin bends over a length of 48 kilometres.
For bike enthusiasts it is a must to take part in the Glocknerkönig, which takes place every year on the first weekend in June. It is a unique experience to conquer the highest mountain in Austria by pedalling in the large international starting field. Another special feature: the Grossglockner High Alpine Road will be closed for the duration of the event – so the ascent can be enjoyed car-free. The summer season will end in mid-September with the Oldtimer Tractor World Championship, where 500 tractor enthusiasts will compete with their special companions for the World Championship title.
