Tourist destination Fügen-Kaltenbach

Zillertaler Höhenstraße

Enjoy the most stunning Alpine panoramas by bike, motorbike, bus or in the comfort of your own car.

The Zillertaler Höhenstraße is known as one of the most beautiful mountain roads in Austria
The road was originally built in the 1960s as service road for the Alpine pastures and the mountain streams regulation agency. Over time the road was then also opened up to visitors and can now be reached via five different access roads located in Ried , Kaltenbach , Aschau , Zellberg and Hippach .

One way to explore the Zillertal mountains is in the comfort of your own car along the beautiful Zillertaler Höhenstraße. But the High Alpine Road is an amazing experience not only by car, but also by bike or bus under 10.5 m in length, and something that must not be missed during a summer holiday in the Zillertal valley. Its highest point at 2,020 metres offers day trippers and sport lovers the reward of impressive views of the Tirolean mountains.
