The Glockner cycle path through the Möll valley

An attractive family-friendly cycle path in the midst of the high mountains – is there such a thing? Yes, of course: the Glockner cycle path ("R8") through the Möll valley combines a magnificent high-alpine setting with comfortable cycling alongside one of the cleanest rivers in Austria. Our tip: Take the bus up and come downhill on your bike!

From the Jungfernsprung waterfall near Heiligenblut to the junction with the Drau River cycle path near Möllbrücke, the Glockner cycle path (number "R8") is an immensely attractive route running along the entire Möll valley, one of the most beautiful alpine valleys in Austria.

Although the cycle path proper starts a few kilometres below the Glockner Village of Heiligenblut (at the "Jungfernsprung" resting place), we recommend starting the cycle tour in Heiligenblut itself. You will have to put up with a short stretch of main road, but the view makes it well worth it - the famous Gothic pilgrimage church and above it the Großglockner, Austria’s highest mountain!

Along the approximately 80km route there are fantastic Water Adventure stops, exhibitions and museums for you:

Heiligenblut pilgrimage church
Jungfernsprung waterfall near Heiligenblut
Gartl waterfall near Großkirchheim
Winklern Maut Tower with crystal exhibition
Lainach "Time Factory" adventure museum
Ragga gorge near Flattach
Groppenstein gorge near Obervellach
Barbarossa gorge near Mühldorf

Our tip: Make the most of the Cycle Bus that runs through the Möll valley. It’s the ideal service for your tour on the Glockner cycle path: uphill by bus; downhill on your bike! You can download the timetable from this page. With the National Park Kärnten Card you will get a reduction of almost 50% on your bus ticket!
