The route for LAKE2LAKE

June 23, 2024


Destination: Lake Wörthersee

Distance: 306 kilometers

Altitude difference: 4230 Hm uphill | 4420 Hm downhill

At sunrise we start at the Durlaßboden reservoir to Zell am See. For the roll-in we leave the Pinzgau behind us. Via Krimml and Kaprun we finally reach Bruck an der Großglocknerstrasse.

After the Zeller See, it slowly becomes high alpine: via Bruck an der Glocknerstraße, we head onto just that: the Großglockner Hochalpenstraße. Over 17 hairpin bends we reach the highest point of the tour, the Hochtor at 2504 m – the longest, toughest and most magical climb of the day. Always in view: the 3798 meter high Großglockner and the Pasterze, the largest glacier in Austria with a length of nine kilometers.

After the rapid descent to East Tyrol, we continue south and reach the municipality of Winklern in Mölltal after 148 kilometers. Here the air already tastes of the Southern Alps. We pause briefly and fortify ourselves with a snack before we roll into the Drau Valley.

Along the river Drau we roll relaxed to Oberdrauburg. From here it becomes strenuous once again; over the Gailberg we reach Kötschach.

From here on you can take a deep breath. In the valley of the Gail, the route leads at best slightly hilly to the east and finally to Hermagor. We leave Kapinberg and Göriacher Berg to the south and finally reach Lake Faak. From here it is only a stone’s throw to Lake Wörthersee.
