“Cycling to the Timmelsjoch/Passo Rombo from Sölden”

Timmelsjoch high alpine road
Ranked #1 of 11 things to do in Obergurgl
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 June 2017

This was just a great experience (also due to the sunny weather). Starting from the touristic village of Sölden I climbed through Zwieselstein, to get to the foot of the climb to Hochgurgl. This is already quite an intense climb. Once I reached the toll-port (as a cyclist you can just drive on), the environment changes to wonderful mountain view where I also encountered some enjoyable cows on the road. Reaching the top, the view is just spectacular, although you are not going to be the only one he will be there. Of course, a lot of people come by (touring) car to enjoy the scenary as well.

If you love to drive mountain passes then should drive on this pass as well. Road is great with amazing views. Even the road to reach the toll plaza (coming from Austrian side) is ery entertaining. At the toll plaza there is a Motorbike museum, ticket was around 10€ (we did not visit the museum). Nice weather is must for any mountain pass since No Views No Fun. Check the official website of Timmelsjoch and you will find all the information you need.

In October, we drove over the mountain pass (aka Passo del Rombo in Italian), which was still open. Because of the dense fog it was a thrilling ride and unfortunately sometimes limited the view to just a few meters. Still it was a beautiful experience!

Passage from Austria to Italy. High in the mountains with spectacular views and nice works of art. A little expensive maybe: 16 euro for a car (single trip)

As you would imagine views are fantastic. Easy to get to from Solden where we stayed we were on our way to Italy. Summit a bit hap hazard with some off the wall sculptures. Very good exhibition on the building of the road. Ate the worst food in Austria or Italy (depending which side of the border I was) there but you don't go for the food I suppose. Summit cafe in process of being renovated.
