I travelled this road some time back, 1984, the views were stunning and I would recommend it to all. I expect that it would still be an excellent drive.

Rode this in 2014 as part of a motorcycle tour to Italy. Weather wasn't great but it didn't spoil the experience. If you're a keen biker this road is not be missed. Great scenery.

Drove this high Alpine road this October, just before the road was closed for the winter. If you like driving mountain roads, this is it. There are many motor bikers doing the crossing from Italy to Austria/ Germany. A much nice but slower road across...More

The road to Italy is worth the drive as long as you don't mind looking over shear drops. Fantastic scenaryy providing the clouds don't close in.

Was not impressed with Timmelsjoch itself, but the road down the mountain to Moos into Italy was fascinating.

Something for everyone. Great family skiing and a little apres ski too if you look! Off piste is possible too. Ski school and private instructors are very good.

We were staying in Obergurgl and decided to walk the Smugglers path over the mountains to Italy. Fortunately there is a public bus service that runs over the Timmelsjoch. We caught the bus at the Seeberhohe stop and went all the way back to Obergurgl....More
