We accessed it from Italy and I love it. If you are looking for some fun driving uphill on a curved, narrow road, take this side. When it is sunny, there is a wonderful trilled view as you approach the summit/pass. One might not believe...More

This was just a great experience (also due to the sunny weather). Starting from the touristic village of Sölden I climbed through Zwieselstein, to get to the foot of the climb to Hochgurgl. This is already quite an intense climb. Once I reached the toll-port...More
