The Glockner cycle path ("R8") through the Möll valley combines a magnificent high-alpine setting with comfortable cycling alongside one of the cleanest rivers in Austria. Our tip: take the bus up and come downhill on your bike!
The Glockner cycle path ("R8") which takes you over the Mölltal, combines a stunning high alpine environment and comfortable cycling along one of Austria’s cleanest rivers. Our tip: Go uphill with the bus, downhill on your bike!
Although the cycle path proper starts a few kilometres below the Glockner Village of Heiligenblut (at the "Jungfernsprung" resting place), we recommend starting the cycle tour in Heiligenblut itself. You will have to put up with a short stretch of main road, but the view makes it well worth it - the famous Gothic pilgrimage church and above it the Großglockner, Austria’s highest mountain! Along the approximately 80km route there are fantastic Water Adventure stops, exhibitions and museums for you.
Our tip: make the most of the Cycle Bus that runs through the Möll valley. It’s the ideal service for your tour on the Glockner cycle path: uphill by bus; downhill on your bike!
