Your journey into the summery glacier world begins on the Ötztal Glacier Road. Turn after turn, the panoramic road meanders steeply uphill with an average gradient of 11 percent. By the way, the route is considered an ultimate challenge among racing cyclists. Car drivers take it easier and can extensively enjoy the (toll) road through spectacular Rettenbachtal up to Europe's highest road tunnel.
Once at the top, Schwarze Schneidbahn I & II and Tiefenbachbahn mountain gondolas even take you one level higher towards awesome viewing platforms beyond 3000 meters above sea level.
