MAISKOGEL - GLOCKNERBLICK - Tour

The views? Unbelievable! And the food...!

Asphalt roads, forest trails, serpentines, woodlands and steep runs: the trail from the Maiskogel to the Glocknerblick makes every cyclist happy because of its variety. The Maiskogel Family Mountain is not only great for families, but also offers unparalleled two-wheeled fun for cyclists. Hotel owner Stefan Unterkofler also likes to hop on his saddle and cycle from the Maiskogel, located just a few minutes from the Kaprunerhof, up to the Glocknerblick.
