Nature, culture and enjoyment on the Nockalm Road: heaven for motorcyclists

The Nockalm Road isn’t a route for fast drivers. Every bend, every turn needs to be revelled in. And there are numerous attractions along the motorbike route that are worth a stop. Numerous exhibitions about flora and wildlife, geology and alpine biocoenoses ensure just as much variety as options for brief walks or extended hikes. Motorcyclists can drive directly to numerous alpine huts and mountain ins. Enjoy sunbathing on the terrace and the delicacies of the Carinthian cuisine! Alpine specialities made on location, such as cheese and fresh milk, taste just as awesome as traditional alpine dishes such as Reindling and Ritschert.

Biker’s points on the Nockalm Road: rest sports exclusively for motorcyclists

There are two special rest spots for bikers on the mountain road from Innerkrems to Ebene Reichenau. One is located on the Eisentalhöhe, the highest point of the Nockalm Road. The other one can be found at the Schiestlscharte. But what is a biker’s point? They feature “front row” parking spaces for motorcyclists, information on recommendable motorbike tours on Austria’s alpine roads and free biker’s safes, where you can store your equipment, such as jackets, helmets or gloves, in order to go on a brief walk. You can also park directly at all rest stop options – all alpine huts and inns are “biker-friendly”!

Safety for motorcyclists – motorbike routes in Austria

The same applies for the Nockalm Road as for all other alpine roads operated by Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse AG: safety first! A specialised company regularly checks all roads for sufficient grip. Slip-proof road surfacing without the use of bitumen and equipping all bends with road barriers plus underride protection ensures maximum protecting from the road. Help to make your ride safe yourself! Anticipatory rising, wearing well-visible clothing and perfectly maintained motorbikes ensure an accident-free and safe riding experience on all mountain roads. Tip: best complete a safety training course for bikers at the start of season, offered, for example, by the AAA and other driving associations.
