Motorcycle tours in the Alps

Alpine roads and bathing lakes in Carinthia, day trips to the South Tyrolean Dolomites and Slovenia – and our hotel is right in the middle of it all. The Glocknerhof is an ideal starting point for the most beautiful motorcycle tours in the Alps.

TheGlocknerhof is situated on a hill in the green and yet central in the Drau Valley. There is enough parking space at the house – also for larger groups. A well-maintained mountain road leads from the hotel up to the Emberger Alm at 1800 meters. The nearest mountain passes, the Kreuzberg near the Weissensee and the Gailbergsattel into the Lesachtal are only a few kilometers away. After the excursion, relax in the sauna and pool or enjoy a cold beer on the terrace. Simply wonderful!


The alpine roads and bathing lakes in Carinthia

For motorcycles and convertibles there are many panoramic roads to discover in Carinthia. Among the most famous are the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, the Nockalm Road, the Goldeck Panoramic Road and the Malta High Alpine Road including the Kölnbrein Dam. The best thing about excursions in Carinthia: There are not only mountains, but almost everywhere you pass a lake. Among the well-known representatives are Weissensee, Millstätter See, Ossiacher See, Faaker See and Wörthersee.

A hotel for bikers

The Glocknerhof also offers reasons for two-wheeler lovers to stop in and spend the night. Bikers benefit here from the ideal location for day tours to Alpine passes in Austria, South Tyrol and Slovenia, a fantastic panoramic view and ample space for their motorcycles. For motorcycles there are covered parking spaces right next to the house. Washing facilities and drying room for biker clothes are available.

At the Glocknerhof we almost always have a room available even at short notice. Book online right away, send us an inquiry or simply call us at +43 4712 721 0

Cross corner round

Tour through the Upper Carinthian Drau Valley. 120 km

One of the most famous circular tours runs through the Drau Valley and spices it up with a detour to East Tyrol. This results in a melange of slanting pleasure, nature, culture and sightseeing. Here you can circle the mighty massif of the Kreuzeck group and swing through the upper Drau valley with its magnificent unspoilt landscapes and picturesque villages. Tour length: 120 km, extension to Lienz, to the Großglockner and to the Kölnbreinsperre possible. To the online tour planner

Gailtaler Eights

Tour through the Gail Valley. 201 km

The “Gailtaler Achter” leads south of it through the Gailtaler Kalkalpen, through the Lesachtal and the Pustertal and the Lienzer Dolomiten in the border area between Carinthia, East Tyrol and Italy. A pleasure for all senses: Countless curves, even hairpin bends in the valley of the Lesach, experiences on narrow roads away from all the hustle and bustle and through villages worth seeing – that makes this route unmistakable. Take your time and look around extensively on this scenic route. It’s worth it. Tour length: 201 km, extension over the passes to Italy possible. To the online tour planner
