Profile Furx

Furx is a small settlement east of Rankweil and is dominated by a restaurant and its parking lot. On the terrace you can recover after the effort of the climb from Rankweil. The ride does not bridge an impressive number of meters in altitude (670) but it is, typically Austrian, quite steep. The first 3.5 kilometers on the L51 shares this climb with the much longer climb to the Furkajoch and the gradient is still relatively small (2-7%). In Batschuns the two ascents separate, we turn left and about a hundred meters further on we turn right. Soon the fairly wide road becomes steep and this remains the case for the next 4.5 kilometers. This part has an average slope of 10.2%. Only the last few hundred meters before Furx are a little easier. On the way you have views of the mountains on the other side of the Rhine Valley, including the Alpstein (Säntis).
