Grossglockner E-Bike Summit 2019

To the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe by e-bike – powered by ‘Kleine Zeitung’. Calling all cycling and e-bike enthusiasts! On 9th June 2019, a very special event premieres in Heiligenblut am Grossglockner: e-bikers from far and wide will flock to Heiligenblut to experience a ride along the car-free Grossglockner High-Alpine Road – making their way from Heiligenblut’s village centre up to the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe, enjoying spectacular views along the way.

The most beautiful pass in the Alps

The setting for this one-of-a-kind E-Bike Summit is the Grossglockner High-Alpine Road, one of the world’s most famous and visually stunning Alpine passes. Along the 17-kilometre journey, which climbs almost 1,200 vertical metres, you will discover why this road is deemed to be so extraordinary. Panoramic views of the surrounding mountains are matched only by the breathtaking sight of the Grossglockner, Austria’s highest mountain; and from the saddle of an e-bike, you will have the perfect vantage point to take in these unforgettable views.
