Travelling from Bludenz to Radstadt and Wolfsberg, fascinating sights open up around every curve to make your spirits soar ever higher as you ride up and down yet more spectacular mountains and valleys. Starting point is Bludenz, the centre of a five-valley alpine region. The route immediately takes you up to the Arlberg Pass with its magnificent view of the Vorarlberg and Tyrolese alpine regions. Forgo the motorway (A12) and enjoy instead a leisurely drive through Tyrolese villages and small towns such as Hall or Schwaz. The alpine mountain panorama accompanies us on the route through the Salzburg skiing region to Bischofshofen and then passing along the B99 to Radstadt where the Rossbrand Mountain (1,768 m) is already waiting.
