The Grossglockner Pass (Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße) is a majestic mountain pass located in the Austrian Alps east of Brenner Pass at a staggering altitude of 3,678 m (12,461 ft.) above sea level. Grossglockner is placed in Hohe Tauern region and houses the Pasterze - one of Austria’s lengthiest and largest glaciers. This pass is well suited for motorcyclists; creating a where bikers can meet, information stations, biker accommodation, and even safes for helmets and gear. Travelers journey through 48 km and 36 turns of unforgettable scenic wonderland. Zipping waterfalls, emerald mountain pastures, wild animal sightings, and winding meadows of brightly hued flowers, rocks, and ice settled against hills are just some of the sights to be experienced while traveling this pass. This road has also served as the setting for many music videos and well-known Bollywood movies. The Grossglockner is painstakingly cleared of snow in the spring to welcome visitors in late April/early may, and can be accessed until late October/early November.
