If you like switchback bends you will love the Timmelsjoch High Alpine Road. The panorama all around makes slow down even passionate drivers - some places are just perfect to enjoy the view. From lush green Alpine meadows and slopes covered with Alpine roses in Hochgurgl you drive up to barren, high Alpine terrain where even in summer several snowfields line the road and where sheep, goats or even ibex cross your drive to the pass. An experience not only by car, also motorcycle fans and racing cyclists have already discovered this epic route. The 60 km long road from Obergurgl along the Timmelsjoch toll road to the spa town of South Tyrol's Meran only takes about 1.5 hours - ideal for a wonderful day trip from the high Alpine mountains to the Mediterranean climate amidst the South Tyrolean vineyards.
Important: The road is only passable during the summer months, usually from late May to October. Extensive snow removal works begin in the course of April, often there are snow depths of up to ten meters.
