CyclingUP in Austria







You are visitor nr.

For the time being the Austrian part of this website is limited to the six toughest climbs from the Ötztal. This includes the Ötztaler Gletscherstrasse, until today (2015) the hardest climb of this website and hence harder than the Mont Ventoux and the Stelvio Pass. The ascents from the Ötztal to the Kühtaisattel and the Timmelsjoch are also substantial. They are, for example, both harder than the classic climb to Alpe d'Huez. A disadvantage of the Ötztal is the heavy traffic on the main road through the valley. In some parts there are quieter alternatives.
