Left: Landgasthof Wasserfall in Fusch, our last accommodation during the 2010 tour. Middle: Ward at the final climb to Enzigerboden (Stubachtal). Right: Warning - not applicable to cyclists ! - for 12% descents at the Großglockner Hochalpenstraße (see next page).


Cycling the Großglockner pass was our final goal for the 2010 tour. Read more about it on the next page. To avoid driving home on a busy Friday, we decided to spend another day in the Tauern region. First we explored two adjacent valleys: the Kaprunertal and Stubachtal.
The Kaprunertal was a bit disappointing. Only less than 9 km are cyclable. After Kesselfall, with a multistory parking garage, cycling is no longer allowed. You have to take a shuttle bus to the "Erholungsgebiet Stauseen", a large reservoir at 1675 m. 

To reach the next valley we have taken the Tauern Radweg (direction Mittersill) for 18 km. A flat,
easy going cycle path and a nice boost to our average speed of that day. The next 17 km to Enzigerboden, at the end of the Stubachtal, was most pleasant. A scenic valley with an attractive, good quality road. Not much cars and only a few motor bikes !
